Manny Pacquiao, 146 lbs., Jeff Horn, 147 lbs.

The fight is on!

Despite some speculations as to how Jeff Horn would be able to get the 147-pound welterweight weight limit. It was answered at the weigh-in as Horn (16-0-1, 11 KOs) registered just exactly at the limit.

Manny Pacquiao (59-6-2, 38 KOs), as usual, weighted below the welterweight limit at 146 pounds. So we have a fight on Sunday at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
