Manny Pacquiao seems to defend his WBO welterweight crown by entering enemy territory and taking on undefeated Australian Jeff Horn. Many are questioning the decision-making process for”Pac-Man” in this one, as he’s one of the biggest names in boxing and retains the gold but decided to travel to a younger, more gifted boxer’s home country to carry him on.
Even despite this, Pacquiao is a solid -600 favorite with Horn coming back at +400 based on Bovada.
Pacquiao proved in his fight with Jessie Vargas that he still has lots of quickness despite his advancing age. When you couple that speed with a superb struggle IQ, you can see why Pacquiao can still reign over a division. However, age has zapped some of the punching power and he’s become much more quantified with his aggressive style.
“The Hornet” is easily the best pound-for-pound fighter out of Australia right now, as the former Olympian is 16-0-1 with 11 knockouts. Horn is a tall fighter that uses technical acumen more than athleticism that is normal. Although Horn is undoubtedly a fantastic fighter, this is a significant step up in competition for the Aussie with the biggest wins of his career coming against the aging Randall Bailey and Ali Funeka.
Pacquiao should logically win this battle, but do not be in shock if Horn pulls out the victory. Pacquiao has stacked the deck against himself in this one and is in classic upset territory.
