Horn to Pacquiao: If you want it, let’s do it again Horn to Pacquiao: If you want it, let’s do it again

MANILA, Philippines – Jeff Horn is willing to go at it again with Manny Pacquiao if the Filipino icon wants it.

Honored with a ticker-tape parade around Brisbane, Australia Thursday for his title-winning effort against Pacquiao—where he was also presented with the keys to the city—Horn said he has no problems with a rematch.

The newly crowned WBO welterweight title is aware that Pacquiao has a rematch clause, saying he’s ready if ever the Filipino icon decides to exercise it.

"He (Pacquiao) said after the fight he was happy with the decision. He might be changing his mind. But I feel if he wants to do it again, let's do it again. The rematch clause is there for a reason," Horn told AAP.

While Pacquiao initially said he respects Horn’s unanimous decision win last Sunday at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, he added that he believed he did just enough to retain the title.

Pacquiao then backed a protest by the Games and Amusements Board asking the WBO for a thorough review of a fight to spot irregularities in the officiating and judging. The WBO, meanwhile, said it won’t act on the GAB’s call.
