MANNY PACQUIAO will indeed fight Jeff Horn, according to reports.

Australia’s Jeff Horn is unlikely challenger for the all-time great but Brisbane is picked out as the location and Pacquiao’s team have stated that the Filipino has signed for the fight, although certain details still need to be finalised.

Manny’s promoter Bob Arum told the LA Times that the essential points had been agreed, saying, “Paperwork takes time, particularly when it’s not the usual thing of getting it done in the United States. We’re dealing with an Australian promoter, the state government. … Here, in this case, you’ve got to cross the T’s and dot the I’s, and that’s what we’re in the process of doing.”
