Manny could be 'ready to crumble' against Horn

  • Freddie Roach backs Manny Pacquiao to dazzle Jeff Horn

Roach was happy to spruik a potential rematch with Floyd Mayweather but that depended heavily on not just the result on Sunday but the manner of any victory, or defeat.

The Filipino's trainer believes it's a possibility.

Pacquiao, who was outpointed by Mayweather in the "Fight of the Century" two years ago, will be the strong favorite when he defends his world title against the unbeaten Horn in Brisbane. I think Manny needs to knock out Horn and I know he will.

Horn's father Jeff Sr, 59, says he has "full confidence" that trainer Glenn Rushton will take total care of his son in the biggest moment of his life.

"I focus on the good things boxing does - I look at the way it's changed Jeff's life, from a kid who was being bullied to a guy who is now going to compete in one of the greatest sporting events ever in Australia. If he struggles in this fight it could be over".

"My preparation has been very good, " Pacquiao said. "I think when you're going to fight someone and you're an underdog, and you're in your hometown in front of an unprecedented 50,000 to 60,000 screaming fans, there might be some encouragement there". "So he's someone that we have looked at a lot, and to land the same punch that Marquez did in the fight - the big overhand right - that's definitely what we're looking for", he added. Being a left-hander (southpaw) also makes him more hard for orthodox fighters (right-handed) such as Horn. This fight is not done yet.

Stephanopolous said there aren't 45 yeses, because several Republican senators have not said they would support the bill. The people who the expansion helped, she said, would initially be grandfathered in but should consider other options.

Buffer, the man behind the most famous line in boxing - "let's get ready to rumble" - will be the guest ring announcer at Sunday's Battle of Brisbane.

"I said to him, follow the plan and we win the fight, simple as that", Rushton said.

The WBO welterweight championship fight is slated to begin 11:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Suncorp Stadium.

"I regard Jeff like a son and every time he gets hit, I feel it".

It marked the only time that a Pacquiao-Marquez bout had a definitive result as their previous three fights all ended in inconclusive decisions.

An Olympic quarterfinalist at the 2012 London Games, Horn has built a 16-0-1 record with 11 knockouts since turning pro in 2013. "I'm a teacher in the ring".
