Horn's Coach Reveals: Bad Blisters a Factor in Loss To Crawford

Horn's Coach Reveals: Bad Blisters a Factor in Loss To Crawford

A BRUISED but defiant Jeff Horn emerged at the MGM Grand on Sunday morning adamant he can still mix it with the best boxers in the game after his first defeat.

Crawford's awe-inspiring performance will have only reaffirmed his status as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world, if not the outright No.1.

"I'm a bit frustrated and disappointed", Horn told reporters, his face swollen and purple after eating a barrage of Crawford's sharp punches.

Media commitments aside, he didn't make an appearance at any post-fight functions and after a night of rest, said frustration had now switched to defiance as he digested his first defeat as a professional.

"Coming into this fight I was a challenger and I didn't like that too much".

Humbled on the big stage the night before, Horn put on a courageous front on a gloomy Monday morning (AEST) as he and his family began picking up the pieces.

"I feel like I'm getting better and better", he added, "feel like I'm stronger, more energized, I feel like this is a great division for me". Definitely. I still feel like I can match it with the best of them out there.

It has been speculated that other USA promoters could look to match their up-and-coming fighters with Horn because of the test he can provide.

Horn said the American was too crafty.

"I knew where their camp was coming from", he said.

All-time great trainer Johnny Lewis called The Courier-Mail yesterday to say that he hoped Horn would not fight at welterweight again but rather head to the higher junior-middleweight division. "I thought the referee did a good job and Jeff did not get hurt so he will learn from the experience".

"I definitely want to come back and have some big wins over here". "Possibly by the end of the year I'll have another fight".

Horn's trainer Glenn Rushton said he was waiting for the one big punch from Horn that could have changed the fight but it never came.
