Manny Pacquiao is in Brisbane to begin preparations for his fight against Jeff Horn  in Brisbane on the 2nd of July.

The Filipino champion (pictured) was mobbed by thousands of fans at Brisbanes Southbank on Tuesday in an indication of just how big this fight could be.

Horn was never Pacquiao’s first choice of opponent for the fight and he says while he hasn’t seen any footage of the Brisbane school teacher in action, he’s preparing to give his full attention to the fight and his opponent, with the bout just six weeks away.
