Jeff Horn comes on strong late, halts Gary Corcoran in messy affair

Jeff Horn comes on strong late, halts Gary Corcoran in messy affair

The British boxer remained in Australia to be present for Jeff Horn's first defence of his WBO welterweight title on Wednesday but it's safe to say that Khan was not impressed by Horn's showing as he stopped Gary Corcoran in the 11th round in Brisbane.

The London-based Irish Traveller wanted to bring the fight in close and that's what he did throughout the early rounds, many of which were hard to call. Now it's time for Jeff Horn vs Gary Corcoran.

As Corcoran's cut near his right eye looked to open up, Horn found energy in the eighth to edge another round as he proceeded to land more shots than his challenger.

Horn is now in line to face the undefeated American Terence Crawford (32 wins in 32 fights) in Las Vegas in April. "The whole fight I felt I was a little bit off tonight".

Horn was the heavy favourite with bookmakers and started the stronger but Corcoran, who had lost just one of his 18 career fights, proved to be no pushover.

Horn looked short of his usual energy - perhaps a product of his dramatic weight loss of 4kg in 24 hours to come under the welterweight limit.

Wenger Assures Ramsey's Hamstring Not Serious But He'll Miss West Ham Game
Shkodran Mustafi has been ruled out of Wednesday's game but could be fit for the match against Newcastle at the weekend. Arsenal could only earn a single point against the Saints away from home yesterday.

Earlier in the week, the Corcoran camp accused Horn of "fighting dirty" in previous bouts and repeatedly discredited his world title win over Pacquiao in July by claiming the legendary Filipino was well past his prime.

"It's a big possibility and if that's what everyone wants to see, then that's what's going to happen".

However, when Horn ratcheted up the intensity at the beginning of the ninth round Corcoran couldn't go with him.

Corcoran came back by landing an overhand right that made Horn retreat in the final minute of the fifth.

Corcoran had some success over the last 30 seconds of the second round.
