Horn Claims Pacquiao Is Ducking Him
uiao IS “Ducking Hi”
The Aussie would win in-front of a hometown crowd taking a unanimous decision over Pacquiao in 2017, and while there was a rematch clause, it would never come together.
Horn would lose the title in a fight against Terence Crawford last year, but following a knockout win over Anthony Mundine, the former school teacher says top middleweights are ducking him.
“I believe Pacquiao doesn’t want to fight me again because he doesn’t know what he could do different to beat me. He doesn’t do well against my come-forward aggressive style. He likes guys that will just stand there. Pacquiao knows it is tough night in the office if he accepts a fight against me. He gets much bigger money and an easier fight on his body against [Floyd] Mayweather,” Horn told Forbes.
“The other welters know I am a hard fight and are avoiding me. They will use the excuse that I didn’t really beat Pacquiao or [Terence] Crawford ‘easily’ beat me. Crawford is a great fighter and is one of the hardest to beat I believe. As is Spence. On my best day I, I believe I can beat any fighter out there. I am not saying it will be easy at all. I just know I can do it.”
