Pac-Horn match could spell immortality in pantheon of greatness for both pugilists

Young Aussie boxer and undefeated home favorite Jeff Horn (16-0-1, 11 KO’s) is set to clash in the canvas with 8-time World Division champion and Philippine Senator Manny Pacquiao (59-6-2, 38 KO’s) on Saturday in Australia (Sunday morning PH time).

The fight will be broadcast live from Brisbane, Australia by ESPN. Pacquiao comes into the ring as a minus-1000 favorite to beat  the undefeated Horn. The challenger is a plus-650 underdog.
Win or lose, I think Pacman has nothing really to lose in this, as they say, lopsided fight although I am going for a possible upset from the younger Horn. First, Manny Pacquiao might still have sparks on the ring, but fighting a crowd favorite, undefeated and rising star in the ring like Jeff Horn, this is something that every young and upcoming boxer (just like many when he fought Oscar Dela Hoya in 2008) dreams to achieve. I think for that main reason, Jeff Horn has all the motivation and off-court drama that every viewer around the world wants. Might as well, seeing Pacman defeated by a younger one, would or might propel Floyd Mayweather Jr. for a rematch, right after his game against McGregor.



Here is another opinion from one of powecast.net’s expert in boxing.

On paper, experience and eye test, almost everyone would say that Manny Pacquiao would win this easy. The odds are against Jeff Horn. Manny Pacquiao, although already at 38 still looks blazingly fast especially compared with Horn who does not look impressive at all. Nonetheless Jeff Horn still got a puncher’s chance, and being young and undefeated gives him a bit of an edge. The crowd in Brisbane, although will be mostly be Australian, won’t really matter . Personally I do not see Jeff Horn winning the fight, and while I am personally hoping that Pacquiao gets a knockout win, my prediction would be a unanimous decision or a TKO stoppage in the late round due to punishments from Manny.—Pow Salud, founder of Powcast.net sports community
