Pacquiao Eyeing Mayweather Rematch - Trainer

The multi-time Trainer of the Year sees the eight-weight world champion taking a huge risk with his reputation by taking on a lesser-known fighter in Australian contender Horn.

"We have to win this fight". It is a crucial fight for us. "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". "Maybe he'll dominate early and win by knockout, but Manny is 38", he said.

While Horn has age on his side - at 29 he's nine years younger than Pacquiao - the fight represents an vast leap in class for the Brisbane challenger, who has quit his former life as a school teacher for what can only be described as a dream opportunity against an all-time great. Pacquiao will be hoping to prove to he still has what it takes to compete with the best in the world.

Pacquiao's strength and conditioning coach, Justin Fortune, a former world-class Australian heavyweight boxer, said the Filipino legend wanted to score a big knockout win for his debut on the ESPN network in America, which has promised him the largest television audience he has ever experienced in the United States. "I just focused on this fight, not anything on future fights or future plans".

"Manny's got a few fights left and I know that we are getting close to the end", Roach said Tuesday as Pacquiao cools down in his preparation for the first defense of his world welterweight crown.

Legendary ring announcer Michael Buffer believes anybody who doubts Jeff Horn's chances against Manny Pacquiao should look to one of the biggest upsets in the sport's history. "If he struggles in this fight it could be over". "So he's someone that we have looked at a lot, and to land the same punch that Marquez did in the fight - the big overhand right - that's definitely what we're looking for", he added.

"I know what Manny has, " Horn said. I've been waiting for that for a while now.

Pacquiao briefly retired past year before making a successful comeback against Vargas in November. Roach mentioned he did see signs of the old Manny as he knocked out two sparring partners.
