England’s Corcoran continued to point out Monday that Horn’s head-butts shouldn’t be allowed when they fight for Horn’s WBO welterweight title Wednesday in Brisbane, Australia, Horn’s hometown.
The WBO has assigned American referee Benjy Esteves to officiate their scheduled 12-round fight at Brisbane’s Convention & Exhibition Centre (ESPN; 6:30 a.m. EST).
Frank Greaves, Corcoran’s trainer, made a spectacle of Horn’s habitual head-butts by showing reporters a compilation of those infractions from his laptop during the press conference.
Greaves also jokingly offered Horn a prop, a baseball cap with a boxing glove taped to its front, to wear during their fight.
In Horn’s last fight – a 12-round, unanimous-decision upset of Manny Pacquiao – what were ruled accidental clashes of heads opened cuts on Pacquiao’s face in the sixth and seventh rounds.
