    Here’s all the key information about the fight.

    Unlike most other sports, boxing doesn’t follow a particularly rigid time schedule. With an undercard of six fights starting at 9:00am, the main bout between Pacquiao and Horn is scheduled to start close to 1:45pm (AEST).

    Sporting a career record of 59-6-2, 38-year-old Filipino Manny Pacquiao enters this clash as the hot favourite to claim the WBO Welterweight title. Three of those six losses have come in his last eight fights though, including 2015’s highly controversial loss to Floyd Mayweather by judge’s decision.

    Jeff Horn, on the other hand, is yet to taste defeat in his young boxing career. A draw in his fourth career bout – against countryman Rivan Cesaire – is the only time Horn hasn’t stepped into the ring and won, with his record currently an impressive 16-0-1.
