Pacquiao wants Horn rematch in PH

MANILA, Philippines – Filipino boxing icon turned senator Manny Pacquiao announced on Sunday that his supposed rematch against Jeff Horn will not push through in Australia, after weeks of conflicting reports.

It was initially reported mid-August that the Pacquiao-Horn rematch will take place in Australia later this year, after Horn booked a massive upset of the "Pacman" last July 2 at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.

In a twist, however, Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo said two weeks ago that Pacquiao will instead fight Horn at the Philippine Arena in December, a statement that surprised Top Rank chief executive Bob Arum.

Eventually, Horn's camp announced that the rematch will not push through this year, which Pacquiao confirmed in an interview on radio DZBB on Sunday.

"It will not push through there in Australia," Pacquiao was quoted as saying.
