Last month, down in Australia, Jeff Horn pulled off a shock when he beat the Fillipino legend, Manny Pacquiao.

The shock victory saw Horn relinquish Pacquiao of his WBO world welterweight belt on a points? decision.

Pacquiao?s camp contested the points? decision with the WBO but to no avail with the verdict standing.

However, it is looking increasingly likely that the eight-time world champion will get the opportunity to get a re-match with Horn.

Pacquiao?s promoter, Bob Arum, is optimistic that a re-match will be confirmed in the coming days, remarking to the media,

‘Manny’s on board, Horn’s on board.

‘The parties in Australia are meeting the Queensland government authorities on Saturday and hopefully the meeting goes well.?

It is suggested the re-match will take place in November, but can Pacquiao get the better of his younger opponent second time around?

That remains to be seen!
