Australian media reports say Jeff Horn will defend his WBO welterweight title against England’s Gary Corcoran in Brisbane on Dec. 13.

News Corp. Australia reported that as part of a two-fight deal Horn will then fight the UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor.

The Corcoran bout, at the Brisbane Convention Center, will be Horn’s first since his unanimous points decision over Manny Pacquio in July.

Ireland’s McGregor made his professional boxing debut in August when he was stopped in the 10th round of a 12-round light middleweight contest with Floyd Mayweather.
