Australian Jeff Horn has taken to social media to call out Manny Pacquiao after his impressive stoppage win this weekend in Malaysia over Lucas Matthysse.
Horn took the WBO welterweight title from Pacquiao last year in Australia in controversial circumstances in a fight that split opinion due to the scorecards at the end giving Horn the win.
Pacquiao was humble in defeat as he always is, but if you’re calling a spade a spade, the Pacquiao that boxed last night against Matthysse was a far more impressive version of himself than the one that boxed Horn last year.
Horn sent out the following message on Instagram after the win last night:
As Pacquiao is coming to the tail end of his professional boxing tenure at this point, you’d have to feel he’s only looking for the big fights at this stage.
Whether or not Jeff Horn, who has since last the WBO belt to Pacquiao stablemate Terence Crawford, is the biggest fight out there for Pacquiao, is highly doubtful.
Pacquiao could fight Crawford and other stablemate Vasyl Lomachenko too of course, but perhaps the biggest money fight out there for him in terms of interest is one with the UK’s Amir Khan.
