Jeff Horn (19-1-1) v Michael Zerafa (26-3) WBA Oceania Middleweight Title

Should Horn (19-1-1, 13 KO) come through with a victory as expected, ESPN reports that there are already plans to match the 31-year-old “Hornet” against WBA “world” titleholder Ryota Murata, with the winner of that fight then obligated to face Rob Brant, who has a rematch clause following his loss to Murata in July, and has said he plans to exercise it.
