The undefeated Wbo Ww champion Jeff Horn entered this fight with a professional boxing record of 17-0-1 (11 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.3 welterweight in the world (currently the #1 in this division is Terence Crawford). The only man who stopped him in a draw was Rivan Cesaire in 2013 but it was a technical draw since Cesaire suffered a cut, after one year Horn beat him via tko. In his last three fights Jeff ‘The Hornet’ has won over Rico Mueller (=Horn vs Mueller), Ali Funeka and Manny Pacquiao (=Pacquiao vs Horn).
His opponent, Gary Corcoran, has an official record of 17-1-0 (7 knockouts) and he entered as the No.73 in the same weight class. ‘Hellraiser’ Corcoran lost to Liam Williams last year but then he has beat James Gorman and Larry Ekundayo. Horn vs Corcoran is valid for the WBO World welterweight title (Horn’s first defense). Watch the video and rate this fight!
