Rising Australian prospect and former Olympian, Jeff “The Hornet” Horn, 11-0-1, 8 KO’s, came out the victor against his most demanding opponent yet, a tough Ukrainian by the name of Viktor Plotnykov, 32-3, 15 KO’s.
“The Hornet” showed improvement in what looked on paper to be a fairly sturdy test. Horn dictated every minute with a massive variance in his offense, feints, speed, power, and crafty footwork which offset the Ukrainian’s game. Horn suffered a significant gash in his head in the sixth and the bout was halted in the very next round. The baby faced Australian added a technical decision win to his expanding resume.
