Pacquiao says he won't take Horn lightly

Jeff Fenech tells Jeff Horn to fight dirty

"I'm so thankful for this great opportunity to be here in Australia and fight here, and the warm welcome of the people here", Pacquiao said.

He has religiously studied Pacquiao's previous fights, Horn said, and paid special attention to the Filipino boxer's stunning knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez in December 2012. The fight against Horn will be Pacquiao's first defense of the title he won last November with a unanimous decision over Jessie Vargas.

Horn knows very well that a victory over Pacquiao will have a remarkable impact not just on his own life, but on Australian boxing as a whole.

"I think this is one of the biggest crowds that I'm going to fight to".

Horn is clearly the underdog, with pundits pointing to the massive advantage that Pacquiao has in terms of experience, as well as the Filipino fighter's speed and punching power as his advantages. "I've finished all the hard work, and I'm just ready to show that in the ring".

"What he's written down is spot on and I can get the job done if I follow it 100 per cent".

BRISBANE, Australia (AP) - While Manny Pacquiao has been out running along the river and attracting attention downtown since arriving on a chartered flight with a huge entourage, Jeff Horn has been preparing for their WBO welterweight world title bout in the quiet, outer suburbs.

"I consider Horn a tough opponent". "I've never been in a situation like that before".

"In all my years of boxing, I have never been as motivated and fired up as this fight", he said.

"I think we've eliminated all of the problems that a lot of these fighters have had".

Like everyone in the boxing world, everywhere Pacquiao goes he is getting questioned at the moment about a certain Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor boxing match. I would lie awake at night and dream of winning a big fight.

The 85-year-old promoter got the assurance from Roach that Pacquiao is in the best shape he's seen in over a year, although Arum is not about to take the trainer's word as gospel truth.

"It's not every day you see an Aussie fighting for a world title, especially against someone who is an eight-division world champion".

Pacquiao's trainer Freddie Roach, who also coached the likes of Mike Tyson and Oscar De La Hoya, said: "We are here to win the fight".
