Manny Pacquiao withdraws from November rematch with Jeff Horn

Manny Pacquiao withdraws from November rematch with Jeff Horn

"We have been advised today that Manny Pacquiao, who Jeff defeated for the WBO title at Suncorp Stadium on 2 July, can not return to the ring in Brisbane on 12 November as proposed", said Palaszczuk.

She said her government would continue to support Horn's WBO world welterweight title defence, whoever the challenger is.

Less than two weeks after it was announced boxing legends Manny Pacquiao and Jeff Horn would meet again in the ring, the former champion has backed out.

The Philippines is in a period of instability at present and there was always a chance Pacquiao would not have time to dedicate to fight preparation while trying to help run the country.

Pacquiao was unhappy with the scoring of his shock defeat to Horn in July and struggled against the aggressive Australia's awkward go-forward style.

Pacquiao, the eight-division world champion and future Hall of Fame entrant, is neck-deep in his role as a senator, making it quite hard to set up a fight that will not interfere with his duties.

The highly-anticipated rematch in November between fighting senator Manny Pacquiao and Australian boxing champ Jeff Horn is off the table.

"I just don't think the timing suited him so we will look at other options".

"As WBO champion Jeff Horn has decided his championship defence will be in Brisbane", she said.

The Australian defeated Pacquiao in July's "Battle of Brisbane" to snatch the world title in a famous upset. Roach also feels a focused Pacquiao wouldn't lose to a fighter like Jeff Horn.

In Brisbane, Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said in a statement that Horn looking for another challenger in his title defense. The fight took place before 51,000 fans at an outdoor stadium in Brisbane.
