But he knows deep inside he's a better fighter than the Mexican warrior, the last man Manny Pacquiao had beaten on his way back on top of the world. But if Pacquiao is unable to get up for this fight, he could leave the door open to an upset as Horn will undoubtedly be treating this as the fight of his life, especially in front of tens of thousands of supportive fans in the stands.

The champion can be backed at 7/5 to win inside the distance which looks too big for me, while I am also going to have a small interest in a Pacquiao success coming in rounds 1-6 which is 9/2.

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.

Forget a loss, if he even looks average against Horn, the 38-year-old's career could be over.

Legendary Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao faces a unique challenge Saturday, as he faces welterweight challenger Jeff Horn in his backyard of Australia.

"We sort of came across this opportunity to really plant a flag back in the sport of boxing in a big way", said Burke Magnus, ESPN's executive vice president of programming and scheduling, in an interview. "Horn", as this weekend's match has been dubbed, is expected to attract a sellout crowd of 55,000 fans. Expect Pacquiao to overwhelm Horn and eventually stun him with a knockdown. The Filipino has looked strong since returning from his rather brief retirement, winning the WBO worldwide and lineal welterweight championships with a decision win over Timothy Bradley, (a man who had previously beaten him), before becoming WBO champion by defeating the talented Jesse Vargas over 12 rounds last time out. It's shaping up to be the sport's biggest fan draw since the first Mayweather-Pacquiao fight, which ended with a unanimous decision in favor of the former. Pacquiao will try to earn the 60 win of his professional career against Jeff Horn this Sunday in Brisbane, Australia.

As revealed earlier, Pacquiao is targeting a rematch with Floyd Mayweather and if he is to earn another fight with him he needs to defeat Horn. You can also stream the fights on WatchEPSN.com or the WatchESPN app. "I'm ready for any of them".

Prior to being floated by promoter Bob Arum as a potential opponent, Horn's was just a name you'd see in the rankings and think "who the hell is that guy?" 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.
