Las Vegas plays host to the WBO world welterweight title bout between American Terence Crawford and Australian Jeff Horn.
Date: Sat, Jun 09 2018
Where: MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
When: 9:30 p.m. ET – undercard starts at 6:30 p.m.
Crawford puts his undefeated record on the line (32-0) as he faces Horn. His last fight came in August last year as he KO’d Julius Indongo in the 3rd round. Of his 32 wins, 23 have come via knockout and 9 by decision.
Horn (18-0, 1 draw) is coming off a huge but controversial win over Manny Pacquiao in Brisbane last year. He also TKO’d Gary Corcoran in his last fight to retain the WBO welterweight title.
In the first episode of Fight Diary, I explain why I don't mind being the underdog against @budcrawford402.
Just ask @MannyPacquiao what happens when you write me off.

This will be his first fight outside of Oceania as he hits the big stage in Las Vegas. There’s no doubt the American will be favourite but Horn has proven himself as a formidable underdog in his career.
Interestingly, this fight will go head to head with UFC 225. Which is also headlined by Australian Rob Whittaker.
Enjoy the fight if you’re tuning in!
