Jeff Horn (AUS) vs Manny Pacquiao (PHL)

Australian kickboxer and boxer John Wayne Parr can’t see any way Horn is going to get over the top of Pacquiao.

He says the Filipino’s experience will prove a massive advantage over the local challenger.
“Today is the day Jeff Horn puts Australia on the map when he takes on Manny Pacquiao.
As much as I’d love for Jeff to cause an upset, I really can’t see it happening against one of the greatest fighters of our generation,” Wayne Parr wrote on Instagram.

“I have been very lucky to have fought in front of big crowds in my career of over 100,000 people 4 times. There is nothing on earth that anyone can say to explain it until you feel the experience for yourself walking out to that many people.

“Not only that, but knowing there is close to a billion people going to watch it on TV all across the world. It won’t be until the dressing room that reality will hit that this is really happening.

“The other problem is once you are in the ring, you look across and you see one of your boxing heroes in the other corner. Now there is no more smiles or being polite like the press conference. Now it’s go time and Manny says he wants to make a statement.

“Manny has fought the who’s who of the sport and for him today will be like a hard spar for a massive payday.

“I hope the fight is competitive and Jeff can make me eat my words. But I just don’t believe Jeff is ready at this stage after only 17 pro fights against someone with Manny’s experience.”
