Aussie’s left hand deadly as his right

BRISBANE, Australia – Jeff Horn has got more than just a powerful right straight, and Manny Pacquiao better keep that in mind.

Horn’s trainer, Glenn Rushton, warned the Filipino icon that the 29-year-old challenger to his WBO welterweight title is also a two-fisted fighter.

“Pacquiao might be too focused on Jeff’s right hand that he might forget his left,” the outspoken Rushton said as he supervised Horn’s public workout Thursday at a plaza across a shopping street in this city.

Horn’s camp had been emphasizing how the overhand right will play a key role against Pacquiao on Sunday at Suncorp Stadium.

It is the punch Pacquiao, a southpaw, is most vulnerable to, and it is the same blow that Juan Manuel Marquez employed to knock him out.

Horn has vowed to pull a page out of Marquez’s book when he tries to dethrone the Filipino.
