Horn lines up Corcoran, aims for UFC's McGregor: report

SYDNEY, Australia -- Australia's Jeff Horn will defend his WBO welterweight title against England's Gary Corcoran in December before a potential blockbuster bout with UFC star Conor McGregor, reports said Sunday.

Horn stunned Manny Pacquiao in a unanimous 12-round points decision in July, with the Filipino great pulling out of a planned rematch later this year.

This has opened the door to Corcoran, with the bout set for December 13 in Brisbane as part of a two-fight deal inked with the Queensland state government, the Brisbane Courier-Mail said.

"Corcoran is 26, so he’s three years younger than me -- he’s very fit, strong and hungry," Horn told the newspaper.

"He’s a dangerous guy. I know what it’s like to be a determined underdog just like he is going into this fight.

"This is his golden opportunity to do what I did against Pacquiao but there are millions of dollars on offer for me with big fights in 2018 so I can’t let this guy come to my home town and wreck all my good work."
