Horn Stops Corcoran To Retain WBO Title – Wednesday night in Australia saw Jeff Horn retain his WBO world welterweight title with a hard fought win over England’s Gary Corcoran. Horn had reportedly struggled to make the weight during fight week but once the in-ring action started it was Horn who was in control throughout much of the fight. Corcoran came to fight and he had his moments, and both men’s faces will show the wear and tear of the fight. The final sequence came in the 11th round when Corcoran’s corner displayed the white flag and the referee halted the bout to save a bloody Corcoran from further damage.
