Horn says he has the plan to beat Manny Pacquiao

Despite the potential for disaster, Roach is confident Pacquiao will prove his class once again and then move on to open talks with the victor of Mayweather v Conor McGregor after the summer.

The Filipino's trainer believes it's a possibility. Pacquiao is favored to win over Horn but the unbeaten Australian challenger insist he will beat Pacquiao on fight night to become the new WBO welterweight champion. "Maybe he'll dominate early and win by knockout, but Manny is 38", he said. "He wants a rematch with Mayweather", Roach said to gathered media in Brisbane.

"I first heard of Jeff Horn when we were offered the fight. If he struggles in this fight it could be over".

Although Pacquiao is eager for redemption after suffering defeat in the "fight of the century" back in May 2015, he's not letting the prospect of a rematch interfere with his preparations for this weekend's bout. "I'm willing, but let's focus first for this fight", the 38-year-old eight-weight world champion told reporters when asked about fighting Mayweather again. "I think when you're going to fight someone and you're an underdog, and you're in your hometown in front of an unprecedented 50,000 to 60,000 screaming fans, there might be some encouragement there". "We want to go on to bigger and better things", he said. Horn (16-0-1, 11 KOs) fought three times in 2016, winning all three bouts by stoppage. This fight is not done yet. "That's why for this training camp we worked hard, because I know what he is feeling". "I've prepared for different techniques, whatever his techniques are going to be in the ring, I'm ready for that, either aggressive or moving around". I'm not taking him lightly.
