Rapper LL Cool J dropped some beats and spat some rhymes inspired by the PACHORN bout.

Above all, renowned boxing analyst and commentator Teddy Atlas Jr. blasted the boxing governing bodies for crowning Jeff Horn just to please the home crowd. “You're not supposed to get it for trying hard! You're supposed to get it for winning!”

These negative comments towards boxing in general translate to a strong and evident clamor for a rematch. Not only the fans and paying patrons who want an immediate PACHORN Part II even Manny Pacquiao and Jeff Horn themselves expressed their intentions to meet the second time as per indicated in their fight contract.

Manny Pacquiao, who’s turning 39 this year didn’t even give a hint about hanging his gloves. With a firm conviction, he wishes to fight the younger and bigger Horn as soon as possible to prove that he’s still far from over.

Only Top Rank’s head honcho can tell if their will be a sudden rematch between the 2 fighters. Hopefully, it will not be held in Australia.
