Jeff Horn says concerns about his weight-cut are nothing to worry about ahead of his WBO welterweight title fight against Gary Corcoran in Brisbane on Wednesday.

There have been worries that Horn wouldn't make the 147-pound limit in the lead-up to the first defence of the title he won from Manny Pacquiao in July.

Despite the worry, Horn says he's on track to make weight.

"There's always a little bit of rocks and roughness in the road, but we're ready for this fight," Horn told Fox News.

"There's always a battle to make weight. I always get there. I always do, it's just a matter of how I make it."

Horn also hit back at claims from Corcoran's camp that Horn was a dirty fighter who headbutts during fights.

"If they think I'm deliberately head butting, I don't get it. I'm the one getting cut on the face, and that's when the fight can get stopped - if there are cuts.

"I want it to be a level playing field as well. I don't think i'm getting any advantages."

Horn will take on Corcoran at Brisbane Entertainment Centre on Wednesday night.
