We all know that Manny Pacquiao's putting in the work as he prepares for his title defense in July. 

Facing the biggest fight of his career, you can bet that Pacquiao's opponent, Australian Jeff "The Hornet" Horn isn't slacking off either. 

Over the weekend, Pacquiao brought in George Kambosos, Jr, an Australian who has a similar fighting style as horn, as reported by

Horn on the other hand, also brought in a Pinoy to spar with, decorated super lightweight Czar Amonsot. 

The 31-year old Amonsot (34-3-3, 22 KO), is a native of Tagbilaran City, Bohol, but is now based in Victoria, Australia. "The Czar of Bohol" challenged for the interim WBO lightweight title back in 2007, and is now the reigning interim WBO Oceana super lightweight champion. 

Amonsot was also once a member of the famed ALA Boxing Gym in Cebu, alongside the likes of IBF Flyweight Champion Donnie Nietes and IBF Light Flyweight Champion Milan Melindo.
