BRISBANE, Australia - Jeff Horn doesn't mind the comparison with Jessie Vargas, who he said is a great fighter and one-time world champion.
But he knows deep inside he's a better fighter than the Mexican warrior, the last man Manny Pacquiao had beaten on his way back on top of the world.
"I can move a lot better than Jessie Vargas," said Horn, 29. "I got a great trainer behind me that has done a 10-point plan that we can win the fight."
"If I can follow that plan, no matter what Manny Pacquiao does, I should be out for a win."
The Australian's statement was in obvious reply to the remark made by former world champion and Pacquiao opponent Tim Bradley on Thursday that Horn will suffer the same fate of Vargas in his title match with Pacquiao this Sunday at the massive Suncorp Stadium.
"I think this will be no different," said Bradley when asked about his take on the biggest boxing fight ever to be held in Down Under.
Bradley, who has won the first fight of his trilogy with the legendary Filipino boxer, even refused to say how long the 12-round bout will be, adding, 'as long as Manny wants to lasts.'
