Boxing promoter Bob Arum minced no phrases in expressing his dismay at Senator Manny Pacquiao for his loss in opposition to Australian boxer Jeff Horn.
In an interview aired over GMA News TV’s “News To Go,” Arum stated the eight-division world boxing champ grew overconfident.
“As what happens when you go in overconfident and you know you have the morons in his corner saying that the only way Horn could win the fight is Manny trips his way to the ring. What kind of *** is that? I mean I saw the kid fight in New Zealand. I knew he was a competent fighter. I knew it would be a tough fight,” he stated.
Horn gained through unanimous determination Sunday (June 2) within the bout titled because the “Battle of Brisbane” to win the World Boxing Organization welterweight world title.
Arum, whose enterprise relationship with Pacquiao has lasted for greater than a decade, stated he was keen to negotiate a rematch with Horn although he isn’t pushing for it.
