Just under a month ago, Terence Crawford was instilled as the mandatory challenger to Jeff Horn’s WBO world welterweight championship after relinquishing his undisputed world title in the jr welterweight division.
Jeff Horn shocked the world of boxing when he overwhelmed the legendary Manny Pacquiao in a gruelling encounter, he has now promised to pull off another upset in 2018 when he makes the mandatory defence of his title against Crawford.
Horn makes the first defence of his WBO world welterweight crown against Britain’s Gary Corcoran, in his hometown of Brisbane, Australia on December 13th. Both Crawford and Horn will then have a ninety day period to finalise an agreement to do battle for the title.
