Horn vs Corcoran – Tuesday evening in Brisbane saw Jeff Horn and Gary Corcoran make their WBO world welterweight title official on the scales. Both men came in under the 147-pound divisional limit, though Horn is reported to have struggled in the 24 hours prior to the official weigh-in. Horn is making the first defense of the world title he wrested from Manny Pacquiao this past July and he is considered a big favorite heading into this fight with Corcoran. Should Horn win he may be facing former 140-pound top gun Terence Crawford, as the American is moving up in weight and both men are handled under the Top Rank umbrella.
