Jeff Horn takes on Gary Corcoran today in Australia.
Today at 6:30 am ET on ESPN, Jeff Horn returns to action at home in Brisbane, Australia, as he makes his first defense of the WBO welterweight title against England’s Gary Corcoran.
Horn (17-0-1, 11 KO) won the title controversially in July, beating Manny Pacquiao by decision at Suncorp Stadium. A rematch was anticipated and in the works for November, but Pacquiao pulled out because of his busy government schedule in the Philippines, and instead, it will be Corcoran (17-1, 7 KO) challenging Horn in the Aussie’s first defense.
There’s no U.S.-televised undercard action on the show, as ESPN is showing just the main event, and unlike Pacquiao-Horn, this fight is taking place at time normal for Australian boxing, instead of pushing it back several hours to get it live in the afternoon for U.S. fans.
Is Horn a one-hit wonder? Can Corcoran pull off the upset that Horn did back in the summer? Tune in and join us for early morning fun!
