Horn out to get Pacquiao with shock shot

THE imaginative trainer of unbeaten Australian boxer Jeff Horn (16-0-1) says his fighter would get Manny Pacquiao with something the fighting Filipino senator has not seen or felt before.
Trainer Glenn Rushton claims he has invented a technique that would surely shock Pacquiao.
?It?s a broken rhythm pressure that will be used by Horn,? explains Ruston.
?Pacquiao will get a shock when Horn starts hitting hard from all angles; Jeff throws punches from everywhere,? says Rushton.
He adds: ?Jeff throws punches from everywhere, he can throw right hand leads fast as jabs, he can turn southpaw quickly to throw opponents off.?
He says the pressure technique he has invented upsets the rhythm of opponents.
Great. That, more or less, should vouch for a firefight; although Rushton has failed to specify if Horn also plans to play invisible, or turn untouchable, come fight time.
Does Rushton also expect Pacquiao to freeze once Horn starts wielding his fantastic weaponry?
Meanwhile, out in General Santos City, Pacquiao has been reported to be 90 per cent ready for the July 2 world welterweight boxing championship in Brisbane.
?Manny gets faster and stronger everyday with less than three weeks to the fight,? assistant trainer Jonathan Penalosa told the Manila Times.
Penalosa said Pacquiao will be made to slow down next week to avoid over-training.
Pacquiao has given no specifics on his plans against Horn.
The only thing promised by Hall-of-Fame trainer Freddie Roach was that Pacquiao would go for a sure stoppage.
Roach did not have to make any fantastic predictions or bare incredible sub plots. Unlike his rival from Australia, Roach doesn?t tinker with robots.
