Manny Pacquiao versus Jeff Horn: Preview and prediction

Manny Pacquiao versus Jeff Horn: Preview and prediction

One of the few men to defeat Manny Pacquiao says Jeff Horn would be "scared out of his mind" as the biggest fight of the Australian's life draws ever closer. Pacquiao last fought in November of 2016 when he defeated Jessie Vargas in another fight that fans criticized. Pacquiao needs to win in a knockout to attract the USA viewers for his next fight to be on PPV.

The Australian's statement was in obvious reply to the remark made by former world champion and Pacquiao opponent Tim Bradley on Thursday that Horn will suffer the same fate of Vargas in his title match with Pacquiao this Sunday at the massive Suncorp Stadium.

Pacquiao has been in this position plenty of times since turning pro in 1995 and has a 59-6-2 record with 38 knockouts.

Mayweather has generated US$1.3 billion over the course of an unbeaten professional boxing career after capturing bronze at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.

Thus, according to the eyes of oddsmakers, Pacquiao will ultimately win this fight.

Even with a hometown crowd, Horn has little chance of pulling off an upset against such a crafty boxer.

"I think it won't last too long and someone will get knocked out". The ironic thing is, if Floyd Mayweather were still fighting as a boxer instead of exclusively for attention and money, it's conceivable he would have his hands full with Thurman, and I'm sure some observers would favor Spence to beat him if they signed to fight before the end of 2017.

The Colombia worldwide is not part of Zinedine Zidane's plans and asked to be sold so he could get more regular playing time. However Real Madrid are prepared to wait and squeeze as much cash out of United as possible.

Horn, stands to earn a fraction of Pacquiao's guaranteed purse, win or lose, was unimpressed with Pacquiao's lack of interest in the pre-fight media conference this week where the Filipino spent much of the time playing with his phone.

"I consider Horn a tough opponent".

"We know people will turn out", Koncz told Rappler, adding, "I need more than that".

"Definitely", he said. "If I can land the right shot on Manny Pacquiao".

"In all my years of boxing, I have never been as motivated and fired up as this fight", he said.

Horn is younger, bigger and has a right hand that is best avoided.

Horn was knocked down in the third round against both Funeka and Bailey, before picking himself back up to register TKO victories, although Scott didn't expect Pacquiao to floor Horn. Note, this is a free fight to be televised on ESPN, a network that is also having a slow death. Pacquiao was consistently in the ring, two times a year or three times in a 15-month period. Horn, especially since its free on ESPN and not on Pay-Per-View, get your popcorn, food and drinks ready, because this should be a fun fourth of July weekend starting with fireworks in the boxing ring.
