Gary Corcoran (17-1, 7 KOs) will face Horn on December 13 at the Brisbane Convention Centre and horn is really happy it's happening in his home town, Brisbane, Australia.

"I'm happy to have my first defence of it [the title] here in Brisbane again," Horn said. "It's going to be a very entertaining fight, Gary comes to fight, he's a walk-forward fighter. I think for that reason it's going to be a big clash, an all-action clash that everyone is going to enjoy."

Conor McGregor has been the man every body wants to beat and some feel that Floyd Mayweather didn't beat up the star as supposed but Horn's promoter Dean Lonergan has admitted he will love Horn to face the Irishman ones his first defense is done.

"We are also working on a second event here at some stage next year before June 30," Lonergan said. "We'd love to have Manny Pacquiao down here [again], he's certainly one of the guys on the table.

"There are a number of other massive fights out there for Jeff. There's been some murmurings and rumblings that perhaps we could get Conor McGregor down here.

"I would put the challenge out to Conor McGregor — tell me how much you want and we'll see if we can make it work."
