It was a competitive fight early. Horn was cut over the left eye in round six. Corcoran was cut over the left eye in round eight. Horn took over down the stretch and referee Benjy Esteves waved it off at 1:35 the eleventh round due to the condition of Corcoran’s eye.
At the time of the stoppage, Horn was ahead 100-90, 99-91, 99-91. Next up for “The Hornet” is #1 rated Terence “Bud” Crawford in the Spring in Las Vegas.
