Horn was originally scheduled to fight Manny Pacquiao, but the superstar pulled out of the fight citing commitments to his role as a senator in the Philippines. Now, Horn will face relatively unknown British fighter Gary Corcoran.
Corcoran is 17-1 with the lone loss coming at the hands of Liam Smith. This will be his first fight outside of England and it certainly does raise some eyebrows to see Corcoran being handed a world title shot. Although to be fair, Horn was at the same level of experience when he fought Pacquaio.
It will be an uphill battle for Corcoran because he is on enemy territory in Austrailia, and with only 7 KO's on his record, he doesn't seem to have the knockout power that can change a fight.
Betting odds on the Undercard:
Alex Leapai (-2000) vs Roger Izonritei (+900)
Leonardo Zappavigna (-5000) vs Nestor Faccio (+1400)
Rohan Murdock (+1200) vs Apti Ustarkhanov (+600)
