Horn After Loss To Crawford: “I Have More To Prove”

Following the loss of his WBA welterweight title on Saturday night, Jeff Horn sat in his locker room, dejected and disappointed, but looking for what’s next.

“I’m a bit frustrated and disappointed,” Horn told reporters, his face swollen from Crawford’s punches. “It is what it is. I’ve just got to rebuild from here.

“I’m not happy, but I’m happy it’s all over at least and I’m not feeling too bad. I’ve felt worse after fights before.”

Horn lasted nine rounds against the Nebraska native, before being dropped with a TKO, but doesn’t feel like this is the end of his fighting in the United States.

“I definitely don’t want to leave here, losing a fight and then running,” he said.

“I still feel like I’ve got plenty more to prove.”

Horn is now a free agent in the United States, and now will have Dean Lonergan looking to find a promotional partner that could keep Horn’s profile high, but give him a needed win at 18-1-1.

While his fighter would lose, Lonergan  knows that’s the breaks of the game.

“This is the reason we’re in this business,” he said.

“Let’s not forget, two years ago we were fighting in local halls in Brisbane and Auckland … (now we’re) fighting in Las Vegas and Jeff Horn’s name is on the map.”
