For all on-going comments about the Pacquiao-Horn fight im Australia.  Horn's home country.  Does anyone know anything about Horn?  I would expect odds to be 10-1 in Manny's favor.

Does anyone know anything about Horn?

That question alone should tell it is a shit fight. He is an ex teacher and only has 16 professional fights.

How many passes does Pac get?

Shane Mosley Jr's boxing skills are NOTHING like his dad's!!! Only thing they have in common is his name. #JrAintThatGood

Pac is gonna get a pass for this fight if he wins. They are basically saying Bob Arum's Top Rank Promotion is giving the fans what they want to see "Championship Boxing on FREE TV."

Man, this MIck Conlan kid looks like he could be pretty good.

 

He's really fun to watch. Tall and quick featherweight. Yeah his opponent was a tomato can, but he puts punches together and seems to have fast hands.

 

What's not to love ?

What is up with the ESPN clocks? The end of the round bell appears to end some of these rounds about 12 seconds early.

This Jerwin Ancajas is pretty solid. His nick name is Pretty Boy, lol.

Arum isn't giving the fans what they want, no one wanted to pay for this shit fight.

I do like what Arum is doing by Putting Crawford and Lomo on ESPN. More exposure for two rising stars in boxing. Shit maybe this is what Ward needs.

Forgot to mention that HBO didn't want this fight, so Arum worked a deal with ESPN to bring this to us for free. That's his cop out excuse because he couldn't sell Jeff Horn as a PPV.

Being on free tv is better to the casual fans.

As far as matching Manny up with a good fighter, those days are gone. Regardless of what Arum, Freddie Roach and Manny say, he's not getting in the ring with someone who can hurt him. So unless, they decide to do business with Al Haymon, we've seen Manny's better days against top competition.

Too much hate for Manny out here.

 

It's nice to see tens of thousands of people gathering in an outdoor arena to watch a Boxing match.

 

Harkens back to the golden age of the sport.
