Is a Pacquaio vs Jeff Horn worse than a Mayweather vs Berto?

    I'm not a hater of either men so this isnt about bias although I'm sure many trolls will be in this thread.

    What is worse a Berto or Horn pick from a legend. Cases for Berto is he actually won a belt and had a name. Case for horn is he is undefeated and hasn't had any car crash moments on resume like Berto.

    Pac should retire, he has nothing to prove he has beaten legends and has given us great fights, if he's gunna be fighting this level of opposition he should just hang them up rather than risk tarnishing his legacy.

    Nope. Stylistically pac horn would be a better fight. Although untested, horn would bring the fight to pacman. Also I applaud legend who likes to travel. It gives the chance of the world to see him live. If it is a blow out so be it, either way the Aussie fan are in for a treat.

    Horn has no chance of beat Manny just like Berto did with Floyd so not sure it's way better stylistically.

    As suggested by 'like a boss' the Aussie based poster yesterday, Brisbane in Australia is the leading venue of choice although it hasn't been confirmed. On paper yes, horn has no choice. I also thought that Hatton had no chance against tszyu who just revived his career with shoulder surgery and a blow out of sharmba Mitchell when it happen in England. But anytime you go in the den of a hungry undefeated fighter who fights at home, three is a risk. Not implying that horn is at the level of Hatton of course.

    Nah, I think Pacquaio/Diaz was worse.

    Berto was a two time WW champ, I've literally never heard of Horn in my life.

    I think your really tryna look at the bright side of this match up lool. what is odd is how will they pay Manny his 20m garuntee? They would probably make a lot from the gate revenues but I don't see many buying this PPV.

    Diaz at least retired a legend in Moralez.

    I'm not suggesting horn is in the level of berto:bash: although it is also arguable that mayweather who beat berto is operating at a higher level than a current manny.

    You are correct, I'm looking from a positive side of things. I do not consider ppv money or the earnings of pac for this fight. The ppv price in Australia are nearly half of the U.S. It will definitely not going to be 20m but anywhere about half of that is plausible.

    Sure, but Berto was still a better opponent Than Horn.. Horn is going to get flustered and beaten up in there, he's not ready. Manny as declined as he is right now, doesn't lose to these kind of guys or even pushed. Arum should have pursued other fights for manny, and put Horn in with guys like Vargas or Bradley.

    Yeah, David Diaz had some momentum going into the Pacquaio fight.

    It should be a fight on HBO maybe PPV for Australia but if it is on PPV that will **** a lot of people off.

    Is that optimism due to being a Pacquaio fan? Will you be as kind if Canelo was to fight this Islam guy?
