There is no final contract yet but Manny Pacquiao’s fight against Jeff Horn is practically a done deal.

Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium will host the bout on July 2 and Sen. Pacquiao is likely to receive more than the $5 million offered to him when the fight was initially announced.


Bob Arum, Pacquiao’s promoter, told Saturday that the deal is getting closed to being sealed.


“We’re working out the final arrangements,” Arum said. “Right now we don’t have the deal in place but we’re down the homestretch. The fight is agreed to and we’re working on the contracts.”

Mike Koncz, Pacquiao’s adviser, echoed the same line.

Though Pacquiao’s purse hasn’t been set, reports have it will be more than the one dangled by Duco Events, Horn’s promoter.

After Horn, Arum has in mind a world tour for Pacquiao with fight offers coming in from the UAE, South Africa, Russia and Great Britain.
