Jeff Horn's Las Vegas bout postponed

Jeff Horn's Las Vegas bout postponed”

Aussie boxer Jeff Horn's upcoming fight in the USA has been delayed after his opponent reportedly suffered a hand injury just one month out from the event.

The bout was scheduled to go down on April 15 (AEDT) at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. As of Wednesday, however, the card had not been officially announced by Top Rank and tickets had not gone on sale.

The card was supposed to take place four weeks from Saturday night. Not selling tickets that close to an event is an oddity in boxing.

Crawford's promoter, Top Rank chief Bob Arum, said it wasn't a major injury and would only sideline him for two weeks but it required the fight to be rescheduled. Magdaleno-Dogboe has been moved from April 14 to April 28, and will now take place at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Crawford, the former undisputed junior welterweight champion, made the move up to welterweight previous year and was tabbed by the WBO as Horn's mandatory challenger. Horn (18-0-1, 12 KOs) is coming off a TKO win over Gary Corcoran in his first defense of the belt he won off of Manny Pacquiao in a shocking unanimous decision win.

Horn, also 30, has never fought outside Australia or New Zealand before. The fight will remain in Las Vegas, according to the report.
