Horn coming out with guns ablaze – Roach

BRISBANE, Australia – Freddie Roach is not anticipating the opening round of Manny Pacquiao’s fight with Jeff Horn on Sunday to be a feeling-out round.

Roach on Tuesday said he expects Horn to storm out of his corner and try to take Manny Pacquiao’s head right at the opening bell.

“I think he’s gonna start quick. If I was him that’s what I’d do,” Pacquiao’s longtime trainer told the press on Tuesday.

After all, according to Roach, that’s what a hungry title challenger would do.

“I warned Manny to be ready in the first round. I think there’s gonna be explosion right away,” the cornerman added.

Horn, who prior to being announced as Pacquiao’s next opponent was relatively unknown, is treating his duel with the Filipino icon to be his stepping stone to boxing superstardom.
