Jeff Horn's world title boxing fight against American Terence Crawford has been moved from New York to Las Vegas.

Australian boxing's latest star was scheduled to defend his WBO welterweight title against Crawford for the WBO on April 14 at Madison Square Garden.

But according to media reports, the new venue will be the Mandalay Bay Resort, with details likely to be confirmed in the next week.

Promoter Bob Arum originally wanted the fight in Las Vegas.

Horn returned to training late last month after a lengthy lay-off and the birth of his first child, Isabelle.

Nebraska's Crawford is the strong favourite for the title bout, with most experts expecting a bloodbath and a quick win.

The American superstar has won 23 of his 32 fights by knockout.
