Plenty of punters have also taken $101 for Horn to end the fight in the first round. Overall Horn is $6.00 outsider to beat the American challenger, who is a $1.13 favourite. A draw is $34 a win on points for Horn is $13 and Crawford $2.88.
Aussies love an underdog, especially when it’s one of our own. Horn is given little hope by the Yanks, but that was also the case when he fought and beat Manny Pacquiao to win the WBO title in July last year.
