BRISBANE, Australia (AP) Manny Pacquiao has had bigger, more significant fights while compiling world titles in an unprecedented eight divisions.

The 38-year-old senator from the Philippines may not have fought in front of a bigger crowd, though, than what promoters are predicting for Pacquiao's "Battle of Brisbane" on July 2 against Jeff Horn.

The on-again-off-again fight was confirmed after a rich deal for a Pacquiao-Amir Khan bout in the Middle East fell through.
