Manny Pacquiao vs. Jeff Horn

Manny Pacquiao vs Jeff Horn Highlights Video

The "Battle of Brisbane" is all set to take place in a couple of hours with Australia's Jeff Horn set to face Manny Pacquiao for the WBO Welterweight World Championship.

It's only natural for Manny Pacquiao's camp to underestimate Jeff Horn but they're doomed if they do.

What nobody can complain about is the pulling power of the 11-time world champion.

A whopping 55,000 spectators are expected to turn out tonight in Brisbane. The fight will air on pay-per-view in Australia, via Foxtel.

Regarding the headliner, it will mark the first time that Manny Pacquiao has not boxed on pay per view tonight in more than a decade and is expected to draw a significant audience on ESPN in the U.S. and internationally in Australia. "I'm excited", said the fighting senator, who can make as much as $10 million (P500 million) for this fight.

Pacquiao (59-6-2, 38 KOs) is seeking his first stoppage win since his technical knockout of Miguel Cotto in 2009.

Bigger things, of course, would mean a potential rematch with Mayweather, who had beaten Pacquiao in 2015, when the wealthiest Filipino athlete ever fought injured.

The fight is a big deal in Australia, and Horn, the hometown favorite, is confident he can stop Pacquiao.

Pacquiao may be entering this match at the back of a Unanimous Decision (UD) win against Jessie Vargas in November 2016, but the fact remains that Horn is an explosive striker, fierce enough to cause major damage within the first five rounds itself.

"I'm going to feel a lot better very soon". A comfortable win would add ammunition for a rematch with Mayweather.

Most people believe the fight will be an easy one for Pacquiao since he will be facing a challenger who has no experience standing on a stage of this magnitude. "But we're not talking about that yet", said Pacquiao.

"He was brilliant, he was just like I want him to be".

Pacquiao tipped the scales at 66.1 kilograms (146 pounds) on Saturday, and Horn weighed in at 63.35 kilograms (147 pounds) after shedding 3 kilograms (6.6 pounds) in recent days.

Horn, a former schoolteacher, will reportedly get paid $500,000.

During the week, he has talked about being disrespected amid talk of another Pacquiao-Mayweather fight, and said he had the weapons to knock out Pacquiao.

"Game face is on, school's out", Horn told reporters.
