He is now a world boxing champion ready for a battle tonight in which he could face headbutts, biting, low blows, rabbit punches, and the biggest shock: the early arrival of the couple’s baby daughter.

“I’m confident I have the speed and skills to beat Gary. The only problem will be if Jo delivers our little girl at the fight,’’ Horn said with a laugh.

“We might have to postpone the bout for a few hours because Jo will kill me if I don’t go to the hospital with her.

IN just five months Jeff Horn’s world has flipped on its axis. The hunter is now the hunted.

While Manny Pacquiao was making grand plans and overlooking Horn before their fight in Brisbane, the same now applies to the Australian.

According to reports, Bob Arum and Top Rank is sizing up the Brisbane fighter for a shot at Terrence Crawford in America in March or April 2018.

But first, Horn must see his way past Gary Corcoran when they meet inside the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre in front of an expected “capacity crowd” on Wednesday, December 13.

After no food or water for 12 hours and an hour-long steaming hot bath to wring out the last bit of moisture in his body, Horn yesterday made the welterweight limit for his WBO world title fight with the hard-fighting English gypsy.

He had dropped 4kg since Monday night.

He was in buoyant spirits after yesterday’s 2pm weigh-in at the Convention Centre with a small bottle of water and a large sports drink.

For extra spice on an almost empty stomach, he then donned a unique prop – a pair of ear muffs with boxing gloves and teeth attached – as a nod to his opponent’s threat to bite him.

Horn weighed 66.52kg and Corcoran 66.47kg. The welterweight limit is 66.68kg.

While Corcoran is full of confidence, he is still so little known in the world of boxing that American ring announcer Michael Buffer – famous for his “Let’s Get Ready to Rumble’’ introduction – twice introduced him to the crowd as “Gary Gallagher’’, drawing heavy groans from Corcoran’s team and from Bob Arum, the world’s leading promoter.

The main undercard kicks off at 7.30pm (AEDT), beginning with Queenslander Paul Fleming’s super-featherweight fight against Vergil Puton from the Philippines.

The seven-fight card actually begins at 5.30pm (AEDT) with Fox Sports 507 to broadcast the first three fights of the evening.

Main Event has exclusive rights to the pay-per-view final four fights on the card from 7.30pm (AEDT).

Just as Horn showed in the ring against Pacquiao, there are incredible riches waiting for the winner and incredible, unforeseen consequences for the loser.

The Pacquiao camp is still ruing overlooking the Aussie. The Filipino senator was meant to fly to Australia, collect the millions, keep the engine going ahead of his own super fight with Crawford, planned to end 2018.

Instead, Pacquiao may not fight again, or could be lining up a showdown with UFC star Conor McGregor, depending on what latest rumour you choose to believe.
