Horn says he has the plan to beat Manny Pacquiao

Pacquiao, is putting his WBO belt on the line Sunday, July 2, against the 29-year-old Horn. Alternatively, a strong showing could set up a future clash with one of the division's bigger names if he wants to continue.

Assuming Pacquiao wins, next rumoured opponents mentioned have been WBO junior lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko, WBC & WBO junior weltrweight king Terence Crawford, both Top Rank fighters, and WBC & WBA welterweight champ Keith Thurman.

The Australian challenger made the welterweight limit during the official weigh-in for his title fight against Pacquiao.

Boxer Jeff Horn speaks to the media in a gym in Brisbane, Australia, Monday, June 26, 2017. "I think it's going to be short and sweet. It's going to be harder for him to lay those shots on me because he's fought a few guys that don't move as well".

Mayweather retired in 2015 with a 49-0 record but the 40-year-old has agreed to a 12-round fight against UFC Conor McGregor, a match-up dismissed by boxing purists as a circus.

"I'm hoping that Jeff Horn is victorious because I just know how good that feeling is", Green said.

Pacquiao's best years are behind him, and the Horn fight fits into the sensible plan of a gentle farewell world tour to acknowledge the love people feel for him.

Arum has quieted the fans' uproar by having Pacquiao's fight on ESPN instead of pay per view.

There will be bounce houses, a climbing wall and patriotic activities for the kids including the Star Spangled Safety Event. A parade that steps off at noon gives way to music and activities throughout the day and leads up to fireworks at dusk.

Horn stands to make huge money - reported at seven figures, easily the biggest of his career - if he can inflict only Pacquiao's seventh defeat inside the ring. So with that being said, it's pretty clear that Pac Man will be looking to shine this weekend against Horn in hostile territory.

The experience factor should (and probably will) be significant throughout, meaning I can only see one outcome, and that is a win for the diminutive champion.

Danny Green has urged Jeff Horn to dig deep and draw on his youth and tenacity to pull off one of the greatest upsets in Australian boxing history.

"My advice is for Jeff Horn is to be cautious, " said Bradley, who will call the fight on the American TV network ESPN.

The most popular outcome is for a Pacquiao victory by points or decision ($2.11), while anyone fearless enough to throw a dollar on a Horn victory in 60 seconds would collect $101.00.

"One thing I've learned over a long period in this business is nothing is ever guaranteed", Smith said.

But some give Horn some slim chance, expecting the fight to go deep into the rounds. "That's how you've got to succeed". "This is the case where I saw the kid (Horn) fight myself in New Zealand". Horn only got seven points in the poll.
