If our opponent comes out like he says he's going to, Manny will fire back and I think it's going to be great fight [but] it won't last too long.
He also believes his size and youth "might show" as the fight wears on and he has modelled his plan for the fight based on Juan Manuel Marquez's knockout defeat of Pacquiao in 2012: "That Marquez knockout has been our main point".
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.
There are whispers of this being Pac Man's last appearance, which would be a pretty big loss for boxing.
But in and around his public skipping and shadow boxing sessions, Horn said he was bigger (he still needs to shed 3 kilograms to 6.6 pounds make the weight), younger and had what it takes to beat Pacquiao. By the way, Horn is a slightly bigger underdog here than McGregor (+450) is against Mayweather.
Police recommended that Pacquiao stay out of public view after nearly being overwhelmed by Brisbane fans when his location was revealed via social media while visiting for a promotional tour in April.
"We are certainly going to have a renaissance in the sport after this event and it really is something look forward to". "You can't expect people to pay money to see a fight just because it has a name or two involved", said Arum, who last had Pacquiao off-PPV in 2005 when he fought Hector Velazquez. This is about Top Rank and his longtime promoters going a different route as boxing and pay-per-view are on a slow death.
Thus, there is the belief that he wants to fight an opponent that he is sure of winning and that's why he picked Horn, who will definitely be less competitive. You can also stream the fights on WatchEPSN.com or the WatchESPN app. But he still holds the WBO welterweight title and is defending it against little known Jeff Horn 16-0-1 (11) this weekend in Australia. The network has parted ways with an array of reporters and journalists, the result of a new focus on financial discipline at a time when rights fees for top sports broadcasts are soaring and cable networks of all stripes are growing more mindful of subscribers migrating to new viewing behaviors that do not require a traditional subscription to Comcast, Charter or Cox.
"People say "well, Manny hasn't knocked anyone out in years" but these are AAA guys, with pro-level experience, current or former world champions", Fortune said. If you try to rush Manny he will set you up and hit you with that big left hand.
"I can't imagine him doing that at a (Floyd) Mayweather press conference", Horn said via an interview with Fox Sports Australia. Pacquiao was consistently in the ring, two times a year or three times in a 15-month period. Pacquiao opened up at -1200 and Jeff Horn opened up at +600.
Mayweather faces the UFC title holder on August 26 in Las Vegas, a fight that is rumoured to be capable of overthrowing the Pay-Per-View record achieved by "MayPac" in May 2015.
