Legendary Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao is negotiating a match against unbeaten Australian Jeff Horn for July 2, sportsman advisor Michael Koncz announced.
“We are working on the details to fight on July 2,” Koncz told AFP about the return to the ring of the world welterweight champion of the World Boxing Organization (WBO).
Before Pacquiao, 38, and British boxer Amir Khan announced, in February and separately, that they will meet on April 23. According to a source close to the Filipino, the fight could take place in the United Arab Emirates.
This Saturday Koncz did not reveal the financial details of the fight between Pacquiao and Horn or the location, adding that the bag (economic prize) of the boxers “is nobody’s business.”
Pacquiao reappeared on November 5, seven months after announcing his retirement after his loss in the disappointing “match of the century” against Floyd Mayweather.
