Jeff Horn defends WBO welterweight title with TKO of Gary Corcoran

Australian Jeff Horn retained his World Boxing Organization welterweight title with an 11th round TKO win over English challenger Gary Corcoran in Brisbane on December 13.

Horn, in his first title defense since he upset Philippine boxing hero Manny Pacquiao in Brisbane in July 2017, finished strongly to batter Corcoran and force the decision.

The former school teacher from Australia won by technical knockout in the 11th round on Wednesday night when Corcoran's corner threw in the towel with the England-based boxer bleeding from a deep cut above his left eye.

Trainer Glenn Rushton said of Horn's next opponent, a mandatory challenge from the unbeaten Crawford who has come up from the lightweight and super lightweight divisions: "Look, Crawford is beatable. If that is what everyone wants to see, I guess that is what is going to happen", Horn said. "Hopefully I can start changing people's minds one by one". "He definitely pushed me".

"As soon as I started working off that jab and going first, I managed to break him down quite easily after that".

Corcoran was left struggling to see out of his left eye late on and referee Benjy Esteves Jr. had seen enough in the mid-part of the eleventh.

Iron Mountain Incorporated (Delaware) REIT Target of Unusually High Options Trading (IRM)
Iron Mountain Incorporated (NYSE: IRM)'s market cap, the total dollar value of all of their outstanding shares, is 10886.03m. Evercore ISI began coverage on shares of Iron Mountain Incorporated (Delaware) REIT in a report on Wednesday, October 18th.


But the judges - who scored the first 10 rounds 99-91, 100-90 and 99-91 in Horne's favour - saw things differently.

He said he wasted energy in the early rounds and it cost him in the end.

On the undercard, former heavyweight world title challenger Alex Leapai was raging when his contest with Roger Izonritei was halted in the third round and judged to be a technical draw. He was in big trouble against Pacquiao at Suncorp Stadium before responding with a brilliant final two rounds to win a controversial decision and he again took punishment from Corcoran, a man considered a game but limited boxer.

Horn fought aggressively early in the fight, but slowed down about halfway through the fight, even admitting in the post-fight interview that he didn't think he was at his best in this fight.

"I only thought he won one round myself". "He's someone I can beat".
