Jeff Horn followed up his contentious WBO welterweight title win over Manny Pacquiao with a successful first defense Wednesday against Britain's Gary Corcoran.It was Horn's first fight since his unanimous decision upset over eight-division champion Pacquiao in front of more than 51,000 fans in an outdoor afternoon fight at nearby Suncorp Stadium in July in the "Battle of Brisbane – a victory that some critics dismissed as a hometown decision.Horn, now unbeaten in 19 bouts, is hoping the win at the Brisbane Convention Center sets him up for a fight against Terence Crawford in Las Vegas next year. The early rounds were close with Corcoran continually walking forward and the pair clinching in close, but Horn landed enough punches to have a lead before he started to find his range in the seventh.
