CAN JEFF HORN BEAT THE ODDS AGAINST TERENCE CRAWFORD ON SATURDAY?


On Saturday, Jeff Horn will put his WBO welterweight title at stake against unbeaten former two-division world winner Terence Crawford in the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada (ESPN+, 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT).

Horn, who is rated No. 5 by THE RING at 147 pounds, arrived in the united states on May 30. The unbeaten Australian is excited about the opportunity to prove himself.
“I am enthusiastic,” Horn (18-0-1, 12 knockouts) told THE RING. “I always imagined myself fighting in Vegas finally. It just shows some dreams can come true. The following part of the dream is winning”

The 30-year-old former schoolteacher is acutely aware of Crawford’s skills but remains unfazed and confident of pulling off the upset from the 1/9 (-800) odds-on favorite.

“Crawford is a really slick and skillful boxer,” he explained. “He has many abilities that allow him to adapt and switch styles to work against his competitor. I believe I have the design that will upset anyone in a fight, no matter what they want.

“It is critical to my profession to hold onto my belt. To win this battle against America’s best on their soil will be a massive leap forward for my livelihood and heritage I would love to depart from the game.”

The personable Australian is itching to struggle and was frustrated when the initial April 14 date fell through, due to an injury to Crawford’s (32-0, 23 KOs) right hand. But he’s currently focusing on the positives.

“It was annoying but I feel like, in the conclusion of the dayI am in better shape than I was going in the April 14 date.” Said Horn, who was recently involved in a car accident.

His coach Glenn Rushton had, as usual, set up training camp in their hometown of Brisbane. He is pleased with trainings have gone, factoring in the postponement.

“All coaching camps are tailored to the competitions,” said the venerable trainer. “We’ve effectively had two training camps, with the fight being postponed from April 14.”
