Jeff Horn V’s Rivan Cesaire
Jeff Horn is on a fast track up the World Rankings, with a great attitude and determination to succeed.
With an impressive amateur career Jeff has definitely made an impression coming into the professional ranks, with a record of 6 Wins (5 by KO) & 1 Draw. He has said “I will fight anyone”, and he wants to fight the best in Australia.
Jeff & Rivan meet back on 8th August 2013, this was shaping up to be a boxing war, but unfortunately Rivan got a large cut over his eye in the 3rd round and the bout was deemed a draw.
Rivan Cesaire is after the same goals as Jeff, with a record of 11 Wins (3 by KO), 4 Losses & 1 Draw.
Rivan originating from Cameroon now residing in Melbourne, also has an impressive amateur career.
He has only had 1 bout since his draw with Jeff having to have 6 weeks off for his cut to heal. Jeff has been busy with 3 bouts on his record since then.
This will be an absolute battle, with both fighters wanting this Title.
