For the first time since September 2005, a Manny Pacquiao fight will be televised live without viewers’ being required to pay for it. ESPN and ESPN Deportes will televise Pacquiao’s WBO Welterweight Title defense against Jeff Horn on Saturday, July 1, at 10 p.m. ET.

The fight, which will be called ringside by ESPN commentators Joe Tessitore and Teddy Atlas, is being billed as the “Battle of Brisbane.”

Pacquiao, boxing’s only eight-division champion, will be going for his 60th career win against the undefeated Horn, an Australian native and the No. 1-rated contender.
