IGINIIT ni dating WBA super middleweight champion Anthony Mundine na maliit ang pagkakataon ng kababayan niyang si Jeff Horn na makapanalo kay eight-division world titlist Manny Pacquiao sa Hulyo 2 sa Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane, Australia.
Ayon kay Mundine, bagamat edad 38 na si Pacquiao ay hindi pa ito nalilipasan ng kahusayan na lutang na lutang sa panalo kontra kina dating WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley at Jessie Vargas.
“Even though he is at his end and past his prime, I believe he is still a dangerous fighter,” ayon kay Mundine sa BoxingScene.com.
“I have watched him a couple of times. He is just a young, enthusiastic and confident kid. He is an awkward fighter.
He has got some power but I don’t really go much on his skill,” aniya.
Binigyan niya ng napakaliit na tsansa ang 29 anyos na si Horn at inamin na gusto niyang maka-spar si Pacquiao.
“On paper, you would think Manny has it all day. But anything can happen in boxing,” ani Mundine na hinawakan rin ang IBO middleweight belt. “I like Manny as fighter and if by chance I bumped into him, I would meet him out of respect for what he has done in the ring.”
May rekord si Pacquiao na 59-6-2 tampok ang 38 knockout at inaasahang mananalo kay Horn na may kartadang 16-0-1.
