Corcoran is in training waiting for the contract to be finalised but is expected to travel to Australia for the fight. It’s a surprise opportunity for Corcoran who lost to Liam Williams in a British light-middleweight clash last year. In July Gary took a close decision over Larry Ekundayo to win a WBO Inter-Continental title. Now he gets a shot at the big time.
Quiet Australian Jeff Horn was a shock victor when he roughed up and won a decision against boxing legend Manny Pacquiao in Brisbane in July.
It was thought that Manny Pacquiao wanted a rematch with Horn but that will have to wait until next year.
