MANILA, Philippines – While cellphones and cameras are usually prohibited during Manny Pacquiao’s sparring sessions, the same isn’t the case for the camp of Jeff Horn.

Horn, who challenges Pacquiao on July 2 in Brisbane, Australia, on Monday allowed the media to shoot his sparring session with Filipino boxer Czar Amonsot.

Check out the video by veteran scribe Grantlee Kieza of The Courier-Mail:

It can be seen that Horn is using his distance and movement against the southpaw Amonsot, which the challenger will likely employ against Pacquiao, especially given the Filipino icon’s disadvantages in height and reach.

The 31-year-old Amonsot (34-3-3, with 22 KOs), a native of Tagbiliaran City in Bohol, is now based in Victoria, Australia. He now campaigns as a super lightweight (140-pounder), and Horn’s camp believes he can help Horn reach tip-top form for Pacquiao.

Amonsot is perhaps best known for holding his ground against former champion Michael Katsisdis—also an Australian—during their 2007 fight. He lost to the Australian slugger via unanimous decision.

He is also a former member of the famed ALA stable in Cebu.
