Manny Pacquiao vs. Jeff Horn, billed as "Battle of Brisbane", was a boxing match for the WBO welterweight championship, held at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia on 2 July 2017. After 12 rounds, Horn won via unanimous decision.

The bout was initially announced in January 2017. However, by the next month the fight was in doubt. Pacquiao decided to fight Amir Khan in the United Arab Emirates, but the fight fell through. Pacquiao-Khan is now possible to take place in November 2017.

The fight was finalized in April 2017. The fight was financed by the city of Brisbane and the Queensland government. Some in the media questioned the quality of the match-up.

The fight was broadcast as a pay-per-view in the fighters' home countries of Australia and the Philippines, with the rights respectively held by Main Event and ABS-CBN.

In the United States, the fight was aired on ESPN (in English) and ESPN Deportes (in Spanish); due to the time difference, it was aired on the night of 1 July. The fight marked a return of Top Rank boxing to ESPN; the promotion had previously aired fights on ESPN from 1980 to 1996. It marked the first time that a Pacquiao bout would air on a non-premium, basic cable channel in the United States (previous Pacquiao fights were largely broadcast via PPV). The event was reported by The Ring to be the first in a larger, two-year contract with ESPN.
