Things are heating up ahead of the spicy rematch between Michael Zerafa and Jeff Horn, with sparks flying ahead of Wednesday night’s fight.
The two fierce rivals will come face-to-face for their much anticipated middleweight bout on Wednesday four months after Zerefa handed Horn the biggest beating of his life.
Zerafa has also spent all week taking pot shots at the Horn camp, including spiteful comments aimed at trainer Glenn Rushton – who Zerafa claims he puts his own interests ahead of the safety of his fighter.
Rushton came under fire for not throwing the towel in early to save Horn from punishment when Zerafa dominated their first fight between the pair.
Horn, however, says a repeat would not happen if he gets badly hurt again on Wednesday – not that he expects that to be the case.
WHEN IS ZERAFA V HORN 2?
The rematch takes place on Wednesday, December 18.
Doors open at 5pm Brisbane time, and the first fight is scheduled to start at 5:30.
Horn and Zerafa will make their ringwealks at 9pm Brisbane time and the fight should start at 9:15pm.
WHAT TIME WILL THE FIGHT START?
The undercard will start at 7pm AEDT – and while fight times are always fluid, the main event is expected to take place around 10.15pm AEDT (9.15pm Brisbane time).
