Pacquiao set to fight Horn in Australia

Forget about Manny Pacquiao taking on Amir Khan in Dubai. It's all crap. It's Pacquiao vs Horn set this summer in Australia according to Pacquiao's adviser Michael Koncz.

"We signed the Jeff Horn contract this morning. Fight is July 2 in Brisbane, Australia," Pacquiao's adviser Michael Koncz.

What the heck. I never learn my lesson. I'm still as gullible the first time I heard about this crazy "promoter" based in Dubai making noise to promote one of Manny Pacquiao fights. I was sold again with the idea.

The Pacquiao-Horn was first brought up in January, but then a potential Pacquaio-Khan match-up surface somewhere, which I thought would finally happen. But when both Pacquiao and Khan sort this "promoter" and start asking where's the money? It turned out hollow.

Well, I forget about it and shifted my attention to the Pacquiao-Horn fight. The first question that pop-up to my mind is, who the hell is Jeff Horn? Google... google,  and I stumbled upon a profile feature of Jeff "The Hornet" Horn written by Ryan Songalia.

So, what do you think of this fight? Does it really make sense?
