IT’S hardly the one that got away, but a rematch of the 2017 WBO welterweight title fight between Jeff Horn and Manny Pacquiao did seem a natural at the time and probably should have happened at some point.

That the fight never materialised, however, has nothing to do with Horn, the victor, running in another direction, says the Australian.

“For the record, I never denied a rematch,” confirmed Horn, 19-1-1 (13), via Instagram. “I don’t know who told you that.”
