A lot of people including myself had criticized this match up early. But in all honesty, I think it's still a better match up than Mayweather vs McGregor. That fight, if it ever really happens will be a mismatch. I can only hope that one of them gets knocked out for the enjoyment of the fans.
Boxing purists may not be as happy nowadays with two of the greatest boxers facing someone that may not be at all their level such as Manny Pacquiao, the legendary and the only 8 division champion the world has ever produced, facing undefeated Australian Jeff Horn who had never even fought outside of Australia and New Zealand.
The 29 year old is currently at 19 wins with 1 draw. It's a great record but not good enough if you are facing a veteran with 59 wins, 6 losses and 2 draws.
Set to be the biggest fight in Australia since a man fought this Kangaroo.
Kidding aside, Jeff Horn, at 29 is in the prime of his boxing career and any professional wearing two gloves, will always have a possibility of winning. It may be slim but still, Jeff Horn could potentially turn the world upside down and make this a big moment for Australian boxing.
The whole stadium will be packed with boxing fanatics from all over the world and this time we are expecting more Australian inside the Suncorp Stadium to cheer for their boxer. This is Horn's home and he should be inspired to defend it, not that getting a chance to fight Manny Pacquiao is not motivation enough.
The Hornet is set to fight Pacman on July 2.
Someone please give me a ticket.
