After conquering Pacquiao, Horn lines up Mayweather

Updated: 

Having defeated Manny Pacquiao, Jeff Horn is hopeful of securing a bout with Floyd Mayweather Jr once the American has fought Conor McGregor.

The Australian secured a shock points win over Pacquiao in Brisbane on Sunday, although the unanimous verdict was questioned by many in the aftermath.

Horn was quick to shrug off the critics after achieving what he described as "climbing the Pacquiao mountain" and he has quickly turned his attentions to scaling another, more formidable, summit.

The undefeated Mayweather will come out of retirement to take on UFC superstar Conor McGregor in a mega-money bout in Las Vegas in August, but Horn is hopeful of being the American's subsequent opponent.

"I hope so. I'm world champ now. And he has been out of action and coming back to have a fight with Conor McGregor," Horn said.

"It will be a good test for him to cement his record in history to fight another boxer for his title.

"I would prefer to come back here to fight in Queensland or Australia, but, look, there is always a chance that the fight could possibly be made in America."
