MANNY PACQUIAO looks set to defend his WBO welterweight title against Australian Jeff Horn on July 2, his advisor Michael Koncz has confirmed.

When talks fell through for a blockbuster clash between Pacquiao and Amir Khan, the proposition of travelling to Australia to fight unbeaten Horn was put back on the table.

“We are finalising the terms,” Koncz told Philippines news website Rappler via text message when asked about the Horn fight.
