Watch! Manny Pacquiao vs. Jeff Horn full fight video preview

Strap in fight fans! The almighty Manny Pacquiao (59-6-2, 38 KO) will put his WBO welterweight strap on the line later this evening (Sat., July 1, 2017) live and free on ESPN from inside Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, when he goes toe-to-toe with undefeated Australian Jeff Horn (16-0-1, 11 KO).

In preparation for the main event marquee, which will mark the first time “Pac-Man” is competing outside of pay-per-view (PPV) since 2005, check out the full fight preview above (courtesy of CBS Sports). Pacquiao’s tilt opposite Horn will headline an event also featuring Shane Mosley Jr. and Ireland’s Michael Conlan.

Pacquiao, 38, will be competing in his first professional bout on Australian soil and defending a title for the first time since losing to Floyd Mayweather Jr. via unanimous decision back in 2015. While the Filipino superstar hasn’t finished an opponent since his TKO victory over Miguel Cotto back in 2009, Horn is an aggressive fighter who may offer Pacquiao multiple chances to end the fight.

Horn, 29, is undoubtedly taking the biggest leap up in competition of his entire four-year professional career. The Brisbane native has serious knockout power and often stalks his opponents with pressurized aggression, but Horn will have to be better than ever to catch Pacquiao slipping later tonight. At least “The Hornet” will have the hometown advantage.
