Fight Horn in rematch or retire
Legendary trainer Freddie Roach has some unsolicited advice for Manny Pacquiao: fight Jeff Horn in a rematch or retire from boxing.
In an interview with TMZ Sports, Roach said Pacman “got old overnight” and must avenge his loss to the Australian.
“Fight a rematch with Horn, otherwise retire,” Roach said.
Pacquiao lost via a controversial unanimous decision to Horn in the Battle of Brisbane but many believed the eight division champion won the fight.
The decision even prompted a request from the Games and Amusement Board for the World Boxing Organization to review the scoring of the welterweight title bout.
Three of the five man panel assembled by the WBO saw Horn winning over Pacman.
“He did ok in the fight, but just OK, and OK isn’t good enough,” Roach added.
