'School's out' as Horn, Pacquiao make weight

"Manny Pacquiao has been one of the biggest global sports stars of his era and we are glad to broadcast "The Battle of Brisbane" and strengthen the fan base of boxing in India".

It's an open-air venue, and the day's weather forecast is at seven degrees at 7 a.m. and around 19 degrees by the time the opening bell rings for the world title fight.

"I have to give a good show for them", he added.

Pacquiao has beaten some of the best-Oscar de la Hoya, Shane Mosley, Ricky Hatton, Jesse Vargas-while 29-year-old Horn is stepping up in class substantially in the WBO title fight.

"I think two or three rounds", Roach curtly replied, "because I expect him (Horn) to come out aggressively and I expect Manny to explode right away".

"We're chasing a rematch with Floyd Mayweather and we know he has to score a spectacular knockout win over Jeff Horn if that's going to happen", Roach said.

"Freddie is very happy because that snap is back, the power is there", Pacquiao said in an interview with ESPN after the weigh-in. I just felt the hunger.

But Rushton and Horn believe Pacquiao will eventually fold and wilt under enormous pressure.

Pacquiao likely wants another crack at Mayweather before it's all said and done, and he's the heavy favorite against Horn.

An impressive victory, one better than a unanimous decision, will also spark talks of a possible rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr., who's coming out of retirement to fight UFC superstar Conor McGregor in a freak boxing match in August.

Pacquiao is the hot favourite but Horn's camp is confident he can produce an upset over the Filipino legend, who is out to prove he is still at the peak of his powers at 38.

"Kung masyadong malaki si Jeff Horn then the more na mahihirapan (si Pacquiao) na pabagsakin siya", Principe said.

Pacquiao has kept quiet over the past two days, appearing only briefly at a VIP luncheon on Friday and making no comment to media before making a quick exit at Saturday morning's weigh-in, where both fighters cleared the welterweight limit of 66.7kg.

The veteran trainer was on stage and watched as the young, unbeaten Australian held his breath while on top of the scale, before boxing announcer par excellence Michael Buffer announced that Horn tipped in at exactly 147.

"Anyone can get lucky in a fight", he said. "School's out", Horn told reporters.
