For the first time in more than a decade, Pacman isn't fighting on pay-per-view. - From https://sports.yahoo.com/manny-pacquiao-vs-jeff-horn-set-perfect-price-fight-fans-free-231942416.html
You can save the $74.95 or whatever they would have charged had promoter Bob Arum taken Pacquiao’s fight Saturday with Jeff Horn to HBO, where it would have inevitably wound up on pay-per-view, instead of putting it on ESPN.
There’s a big gap between Pacquiao and the top five or six guys in the world, and there’s a legitimate question whether Pacquiao is still the best in his division.
There’s a logical reason the fight is in Brisbane: There is demand for it.
This fight would have been an outrage had Top Rank chosen to put it on pay-per-view, but it costs nothing to watch so it’s hard to complain too vociferously, even though fights versus Thurman, Spence, Danny Garcia, Shawn Porter and even Khan would have been vastly more compelling.
He’s a strong kid and he’s going to give Manny a run for his money.
