Now that the fight date has been set for July 2, former Australian olympian Jeff Horn is oozing with confidence that he can score big against eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao.
The fight will be held at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia. Horn cannot hide his excitement on the fight.
“I am super excited and relieved! If you want to be the best, you have to beat the best,” Horn comments through Facebook messenger.
The 29-year-old Horn, who stands at 5’9” will lock horns with Pacquiao of the latter’s WBO welterweight crown.
And earning biggest paycheck in the future is what motivated him…that is if he can beat the Fighting Senator.
“My motivation will be becoming a world champion. If I manage to beat Manny I will be fighting for bigger money in the future also,” he added.
Last Wednesday, Pacquiao’s adviser Michael Koncz stated that they will work for a ‘quick win’ against Horn, so they can focus on the next fight, probably against Amir Khan.
“I don't feel embarrassed. If they underestimate me at all they will be sorry. I am not number two contender for nothing,” Horn said.
“I can see myself winning the fight. I'm not sure how I'll win. My biggest chance is by KO.” (Virgi T. Romano)
