The reason why Pacquiao needs to refuse 'lucrative' Jeff Horn rematch

Manny Pacquiao's controversial upset loss to Jeff Horn over the weekend might have been a letdown, but there's one upside to it, one boxing analyst believes.

"A rematch will definitely end up as a lucrative project for Manny and the team. Kung ano'ng kinita dito, possibly baka madoble pa sa rematch," Dennis Principe said in an interview with ABS-CBN News on Wednesday.

Principe said that nobody knew Horn before the "Battle of Brisbane" but, after securing a unanimous-decision victory and the world welterweight strap, Horn became known as "the last man who beat Pacquiao."

Pacquiao was guaranteed $10 million for the bout, while Horn was assured of $500,000.

"Dati kasi Manny Pacquiao lang pinag-uusapan, who's Jeff Horn? Now sa rematch, lumaki ang selling factor ni Horn, lumaki ang bentahe," Principe said.

Most people will be interested to see if Pacquiao will be able to avenge the defeat, described by Principe as a "robbery."
