Jeff Horn prepared to take on title challenger Gary Corcoran for the WBO World Welterweight Title. The fight will take place at Convention & Exhibition Centre, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia on Wednesday Dec. 13th. ESPN will televised live and exclusively at 6:30 a.m. EST on ESPN and ESPN Deportes.
The VERY unknown Jeff Horn came out of nowhere this past summer when he defeated Manny Pacquiao by a very VERY controversial decision. The scores for the fight were, Waleska Roldan 117-111 | Chris Flores 115-113 | Ramon Cerdan 115-113. Almost everyone watching the fight including the ringside media had Pacquiao winning by a landslide. Besides the win against Pacquiao he does sport wins over Ali Funeka, Rico Mueller, and Randall Bailey.
Gary Corcoran is coming off a win against Larry Ekundayo this past July. He has only one lost on his record against Liam Williams.
This should be an interesting fight. Gary Corcoran is not a heavy hitter but he does like to bang. He know that Jeff Horn also likes to brawl and in his come forward style is he relentless. You can check out some of the betting odds on this fight at australian online casino.
