Manny Pacquiao will go down as one of the best fighters of his generation, entering this bout with a 59-6-2 career record.
Pacquiao's camp got his point across to local fans on Wednesday, anyway, when his legendary long-time trainer Freddie Roach predicted the fight would be "short and sweet" and that somebody would get knocked out. And more importantly, the quality of his opposition has been nowhere near the standard of multiple time, multiple weight division world champion Pacquiao.
Manny Pacquiao will put his WBO welterweight title on the line when he steps into the ring against Jeff Horn at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia, on Sunday.
Bradley will be among the boxing luminaries who will attend this weekend's big show at the 52,500-capacity rugby venue.
Horn, 29, may be unbeaten but he has no wins of note on his 17-fight record.
"This is my big chance, " Horn said. "He is out of his element", said Bradley, a four-time world champion from California. "I've been looking for a big knockout from him for a long time now and I think you're going to see it in this fight".
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.
"I can't imagine him doing that at a (Floyd) Mayweather press conference", Horn said via an interview with Fox Sports Australia. This is a very risky fight for an aging legend who has already achieved everything you can in boxing including 8 weight division titles, he is in against a young hungry lion who wants to take the throne away from him in his hometown.
"We might give him your mic, Bob", he said to promoter Bob Arum, one of world boxing's most famous promoters and a lawyer who once worked with the Kennedys, before Ali. Now, at his age and with intense duties related to his job as a senator, the battle with Horn will likely tell us whether he can continue to fight.
The ever popular Pacquiao will be returning for his 68th contest against the relative unknown, as he looks to keep hold of the WBO world title he won back in April of previous year. I'm not going to say I'm going to knock him out, but I can win this'.
During his last visit to Queensland, the Filipino was mobbed by adoring fans in an unexpected rush at an impromptu public appearance, but with Pacquiao absent, Horn basked in the spotlight at the downtown practice.
"If he is to beat Manny his best hope is to catch him with a right hand".
"He could weigh as much as 72kg by fight time". During the week of June 26, classic Pacquiao fights will be available on demand and streaming via ESPN's mobile app.
Horn will be risky and will no doubt be trying to push the pace, but Pacquiao's slickness and ability to make the most of superior counter-striking (from both an offensive and defensive point of view) will be the difference.
