Horn lacks the experience to test Pacquiao: Marquez

MANILA, Philippines – Jeff Horn may be the picture of confidence heading into his fight against Manny Pacquiao on Sunday, but when the bell rings, the young Australian will be in for a rude awakening.

This is the opinion of Mexican icon Juan Manuel Marquez, who told ESPN Deportes on Thursday that Horn does not have the experience that is necessary to give Pacquiao a tough challenge.

"To knock Pacquiao out, you have to know him," said Marquez, who fought Pacquiao four times and knocked him out cold when they last faced each other in December 2012.

Marquez noted that before he fought Pacquiao for the fourth and last time, he had gotten to know the Filipino fighter's tendencies inside the boxing ring.

"I had 36 rounds with him," Marquez pointed out, as quoted by Boxing Scene. "I already knew what he was doing, and that's why that knockout came at the perfect moment when we wanted it."

"Beforehand, I already knew him," he stressed.
