Pacquiao-Horn to air on ESPN

WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao will fight Australia’s Jeff Horn live on ESPN from Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia, the network announced on Sunday. The 38-year-old Pacquiao has not fought on basic cable in almost 12 years.

This fight is scheduled for July 2 in Australia, but due to the time difference, it will air on July 1 in the United States.

There was no way this fight could sell on pay-per-view. Airing this fight on ESPN is a great move for Top Rank and Pacquiao. Hopefully, we will see bigger fights from Pacquiao in the future.
