Arum on Pacquiao-Horn 2: An even fight

MANILA, Philippines – Bob Arum was one of the very few people who gave Jeff Horn a chance against Manny Pacquiao when the two boxers first met last July in Brisbane.

Arum even blamed Pacquiao's loss to some people around the eight-division champion, those who said that the only way the latter could lose the fight "is if he trips on his way to the ring."

Horn, the veteran promoter said, knew how to fight, and it showed inside the ring, resulting to a stunning victory, and the former school teacher snatching the WBO welterweight crown from Pacquiao.

If and when the rematch is held, Arum would still feel the same.

"I think it's an even fight. It's a fifty-fifty fight," he told The STAR in phone interview.
