“I’ve heard rumours that if they’re going to fight again it’s going to be against me and then Manny to retire,” Horn told Nine’s Sports Sunday panel. “The one that I really want”. Horn explained his view that the second instalment of the Pacquiao saga is the most enticing option. “I want the Manny Pacquiao rematch – that’s the big one”.
Despite the controversy surrounding the decision, Horn always felt like he did enough to warrant having his hand raised on July 2nd. “I felt on the day that I’d won the fight. I wasn’t sure I was going to get the decision on the day but I felt like we’d done enough to get the win.”
After Horn triumphed against Pacquiao, he began calling for more high profile fights most notably against the UFC’s marquee attraction, Conor McGregor and undefeated former pound-for-pound king Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather.
