Jeff Horn vs Gary Corcoran

The big issue for Horn in the lead-up to this fight has been his struggle with his weight and his cut in the final 48 hours will be particularly brutal. He was stopped by Welshman Liam Williams (16-2-1) in the 11th round of their British super welterweight title fight. "My timing was a bit off, but I managed to get him out of there in the end".

Horn, who could fight boxing warrior Terence Crawford next in the U.S. in a mouthwatering clash, said: "I knew he was prepared, he talked a smart game, and he definitely pushed me".

Australian hero Jeff Horn has said that it's been a blur since winning the world title and it may have affected him, as he looks to line up lucrative unification fights in 2018 with either Spence or Crawford, seemingly dismissing Corcoran as a stepping stone to money-spinning Vegas fights. Team Hornet claim they chose Corcoran over Skeete due to the fight being more exciting for the fans, labelling the no.4 ranked Skeete as boring. Horn had Corcoran on the ropes, landing punch after punch as the defending champion found a second win against a tiring opponent.

Gary Corcoran flies around the world in an attempt to realise a career-long dream of becoming a world champion, and although many believe it may have come a little too early in his development, the challenger showing stats of 17 wins against one defeat, the Wembley-based welter is determined to grab his opportunity with both hands, knowing a chance like this doesn't come along often in the short career of a professional fighter. Corcoran's work rate had slowed down by then, and Horn was able to land and move out of Corcoran's punching range consistently.

Horn forced an 11th-round finish when the referee saved Corcoran, who had a bad cut above his left eye, to retain the WBO welterweight championship in his home country of Australia. Corcoran went down with just over two minutes to go in the seventh round, but Esteves ruled that trip to the canvas was caused by a push.

He came at Horn and demanded the inside while on a number of occasions even looked to throw punches after the bell had sounded.

Horn won't have the size advantage over Corcoran that he did against Pacquiao.

Blood began flowing from a cut over Horn's left eye early in the sixth round. Amir Khan, however, would also like to be considered for a fight with Horn next year. Horn later landed a right uppercut in the fifth. "They were talking a smart game. they definitely pushed me in there".

Horn is overlooking Corcoran completely, choosing him over his stablemate Bradley Skeete as an easier option.
