Brisbane looks set to be the likely destination for Jeff Horn's first W-B-O welterweight title defence. When it will happen or who he will fight is uncertain, but a rematch with Filipino great Manny Pacquiao is on the cards. Sonja Heydeman reports.
Boxing promoter Bob Arum called the fight a tremendous success for Queensland and for boxing.
Horn, a 29-year-old former schoolteacher, was awarded a unanimous 12-round decision over the eight-division world champion after a bloody battle in front of more than 51,000 fans at Brisbane's Lang Park.
Arum says a rematch now depends on whether Horn would welcome it and on Pacquiao's passion to re-contest.
