‘Hellraiser’ beaten in Brisbane by ‘The Hornet’ on Wednesday

Wembley boxer Gary Corcoran’s hopes of winning the WBO world welterweight title ended in an 11th-round stoppage by holder Jeff Horn on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old travelled to Brisbane for the fight looking to rip the belt from the Australian, who won it with a what was a highly controversial points success over the legendary eight-weight world champion Manny Pacquiao in July.

The fight was Horn’s first defence of his world title and he looked in control in the early rounds.

Corcoran grew into the bout and tried his best to disrupt the flow of ‘The Hornet’ in front of a partisan crowd in Brisbane.

From the seventh round, though, Horn seemed to take his display up and gear and had the better of his rival.

After being checked by the doctor for a cut over his left eye at the start of the 11th round, the bout was stopped soon after due to the referee’s concerns about the state of Corcoran’s face.
