Boxing fans won't have to shell out to watch Manny Pacquiao's next fight on pay-per-view.

When the 38-year-old Filipino fighter defends the WBO welterweight title against Jeff Horn on July 1, the fight will air live on ESPN. Though the fight will happen in Australia, it will occur at 9 p.m. ET in North America.

It's the first time a Pacquiao fight has aired live on basic cable.
