Horn has to make Crawford feel pain by hitting him hard each time he catches up to him . If you see Pacquiao on the undercard, it means that he ’s on board with Arum’s choice for him to face the winner.

WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn (18-0-1, 12 KOs) is looking for a huge payday - if promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank wants him to face mandatory challenger Terence Crawford (32-0, 23 KOs) next. According to reports, Horn might be looking for millions to get in the ring with Crawford .

After months of back-and-forth between their camps, Horn and Crawford finally met in the flesh on Thursday at the official press conference. Crawford and his camp did their best to intimidate but Horn stood tall during an intense staredown that was finally halted after more than a minute.

Crawford mouthed the words 'are you ready?', with Horn replying in the affirmative. While most Americans seemingly expected Horn to arrive in Sin City and lay down his WBO belt. Instead, he grows more defiant by the day as his odds tighten for Saturday's bout at the famous MGM Grand.

"He was just saying to me ‘are you ready?’ I said back to him ‘I’m ready’," Horn said afterwards.

"You just look them in the eyes and let them know you aren’t scared, that you’re ready to fight, that they can’t break me."

Horn has done so much media and promotion for the fight that he's started to lose his voice, while Crawford gave 40-second soundbites to media earlier in the day during a hit-and-run interview session.

All the while, members of his team stood outside the door and threw lewd jokes and insults at Australian reporters as they came and left. It was as amusing as ebola and the precise reason why Crawford's crew won't win any popularity contests, even among their American cohort.

"I can’t wait to get in there and prove the doubters wrong. I’ve heard it all before. I’ve heard I’m a chump, I’ve heard I’m the fraud of the welterweight division. I’m just there to prove everyone wrong," Horn said.
