Pacquiao, Horn overcome scales, ready for title clash

Pacquiao, Horn overcome scales, ready for title clash

Mark won a $2000 travel voucher from the Observer for flights and accommodation as well as a double pass to see the fight "Pacquiao vs Horn" at Suncorp Stadium at Brisbane this weekend.

"He (Manny) doesn't like to predict knockouts and so forth but I think it is going to be short and sweet", trainer Freddie Roach told reporters at a press conference ahead of the World Boxing Organisation (WBO) welterweight bout.

Horn has fought on several of Parker's undercards, including the Kiwi's heavyweight title win past year in front of a hometown Auckland crowd against Mexican Andy Ruiz. Horn has stopped all three of his most recent opponents, and has ended 11 of his 17 fights inside the distance. The Australian boxer paused for a second before saying he has faced plenty of tough opposition.

Pacquiao, 38, is expected to continue his career beyond the Horn fight. He also mentioned Rico Mueller and Naoufel Ben Rabeh.

"Instead he's been using (Filipino) Czar Amonsot as a sparring partner and he is nowhere near as fast as Manny". "I'm looking for a big win in Brisbane so we can go on to bigger and better things", he said.

Manny Pacquiao is one of the best fighters of his generation but has lost some of his flair that made it easier for him to knock out some of the best boxers.

Arum had the last laugh as Pacquiao's fight got 300,000 buys while Ward versus Kovalev floundered with 160,000, but the figure was a long way from the 4.6 million that forked out for Pacquaio versus Mayweather. There's really no reason for Mayweather to fight again after facing McGregor, and few in the sport have any interest in another snooze-fest between Mayweather and Pacquiao. Both camps went as far as announcing an April bout. "I could hit him with the right shot and nobody knows what could happen".

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. This will be Pacquiao's first non-PPV bout since 2005.

In the United States, that start time for the undercard will be 9 p.m. No-one gave me a chance, but I had to punch. Only the elite have beaten Manny and Jeff is, as a professional, fairly inexperienced, but I look back on fighting Roy Jones Jnr.

"I hope you take the phone into the ring and she'll be game over". "No, but he will make it a very, very competitive".

Pacquiao, 38, has booked out 160 rooms at the luxurious Sofitel hotel, and the foyer each day has been full of Filipinos wearing his blue, red, white and yellow tracksuits. The former eight-division champion said he won't underestimate Horn.
