Horn lauds Pinoy as 'perfect sparring partner'

Australian boxer Jeff Horn expressed his gratitude to Filipino slugger Czar Amonsot for his invaluable help during his training camp for Manny Pacquiao.

Horn is set to challenge the "Pacman" for the WBO welterweight title on July 2, and enlisted Amonsot as his sparring partner for what is certainly the biggest fight of his career.

"He was really good," Horn said of Amonsot on Monday. "I think he was the perfect sparring partner for me."

A native of Bohol, Amonsot used to be a part of the ALA boxing stable but suffered a brutal loss to Michael Katsidis in 2007 that nearly ended his career.

However, he fought again, and has compiled a record of 34 wins, three losses, and three draws. He has been fighting in Australia since 2010.

At 5-foot-7, Amonsot is similar in height and build to Pacquiao, which afforded Horn a chance to test his range.
