Senator Manny Pacquiao on Sunday introduced with certainty rematch with Australian boxer Jeff Horn is already within the works and the one factor left to be settled is the venue.
In a radio interview, Pacquiao dismissed claims earlier made by Department of Tourism (DOT) Sec. Wanda Teo saying that the anticipated rematch of the senator-boxer with Horn might be happening in Manila and now not in Brisbane, Australia.
“Sa ngayon, pinag-uusapan pa kung saan (yung venue). Hindi matutuloy ang (rematch sa) Australia pero dinadala natin dito sa Pilipinas. Pinag-uusapan na sana, dito sa atin ang rematch,” he stated.
“Tuloy ang laban. Ang pinag-uusapan na lamang ay kung saan,” Pacquiao added.
Although the bills of mounting the stated match right here may show to be expensive, the senator stated it is going to be an enormous increase to the nation’s tourism business if the match might be held right here.
“Maganda sa ating turismo kung dito ang laban. Marami naman ang sumusuporta. Ang DOT susuporta at ang ating Pangulo, nakasuporta,” he stated.
