In a rough and tumble, bloody 12 round battle, Jeff Horn 18-0-1 (12) retained his WBO welterweight title with an 11th round stoppage of Gary Corcoran 17-2 (7) after the fight was stopped on cuts. Blood was flowing into Corcoran’s eyes from a pair of cuts that affected his vision, forcing his corner to throw in the towel with Horn comfortably ahead by scores of 99-91 twice and 100-90.
