As fight day comes closer, training camp nears the end for eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao and his team. 

Set to fly to Australia this weekend for his July 2nd title WBO welterweight title defense against Jeff Horn, Pacquiao wraps up his training in his hometown of General Santos City, which includes one final day of sparring.

Throughout his preparation for his Horn, Pacquiao has enlisted the help of a number of professional boxers, including his opponent's fellow Australian, George Kambosos Jr. 

The 24-year old Kambosos, a native of Sydney, owns an unbeaten 12-0-0 professional record with six knockouts to his name. 

The reigning WBA Oceania Lightweight Champion, who has shared the ring with Pacquiao for 40 rounds, says that the Pinoy boxing legend is all set. 

"Manny is ready to go," Kambosos told ABS-CBN's Dyan Castillejo. 

Kambosos also predicts that the boxer-turned-senator will be able to put Horn away 'within six rounds.'
