BRISBANE, Australia -- Manny Pacquiao and Jeff Horn got past the final hurdle before their WBO welterweight title collision, both making weight Saturday at the official weigh-in ceremony at the Suncorp Stadium here.

Pacquiao, the defending champion, was first to tip the scales, registering 146 pounds, a pound under the welterweight limit.

 

 

Horn, for his part, weighed at exactly 147 pounds, finally quashing doubts on whether he'll make weight.

 

 

The 29-year-old Brisbane native had been battling weight problems throughout the week, and was reported to be six to seven pounds over the limit on the eve of the weigh-in.

Pacquiao and Horn will fight Sunday at around 11:30 a.m (Manila time), also at the Suncorp Stadium.
