FOR his second defence of the WBO welterweight world title, Jeff Horn failed his first attempt to make weight. It proved to be more a miscalculation. When he returned, he scaled the 147lbs limit exactly.

Crawford came in under the limit at 146.5lbs.

This will be Crawford’s first fight at welterweight. The brilliant American, a former lightweight champion, unified all four light-welterweight world titles last time out. Against Horn, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday, Crawford will bid for a world title in his third weight class.
