Jeff Horn Involved in Car Accident, No Injuries Suffered

WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn was involved in a serious three car accident in Brisbane, but confirms that he suffered no injuries and will still be in top form for the upcoming defense against Terence Crawford.

Horn will make a mandatory defense against Crawford on June 9th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Horn took a day off from training, but intends to get right back in the mix as his team continues to finalize the game plan to turn back Crawford, who is widely viewed as the favorite to win the fight.


Horn was driving alone in his sponsored luxury Lexus sedan when he was hit from behind in a three-car pileup, according to the Courier Mail of Australia.

“No one was badly hurt but it stunned me,’’ Horn said to the paper.

“Fortunately I was in the car alone and my wife Jo and baby Isabelle were home. The man in the centre of the crash just had his head buried in his hands. He was really upset. Really in shock. I jumped out of the car to make sure everyone was OK. The ambulance people came but thankfully there weren’t any serious injuries. It could have been much worse.”

The accident came right after Horn had finished up a training session with strength and conditioning coach Dundee Kim.

“The accident was a shock but nothing is going to derail me from beating Terence Crawford,’’ Horn said. “I’m very fit. I feel I’m going to peak right at fight time.’’

The bout will be Horn's seconds defense of the title that he captured in July 2017 in a massive upset, when he secured a twelve round unanimous decision over eight division champion Manny Pacquiao at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisabn - with over 51,000 fans at the venue. Horn then retained the belt in December with a TKO win over Gary Corcoran of the UK.

I just heard how the accident was caused. Apparently his car had a defective Horn in it.

He is getting involved in car accidents on purpose so he can already start to feel what it's like after the beat down from Crawford. Its part of the training camp.

They should just do TBA v TBC for the belt.
