The American has won 23 of his 32 professional fights by knockout and Horn is talking up his first punch ahead of the June 9 defence of his WBO welterweight title.

"I only need one shot ... He's going to be fast and hard to hit but, if I can land it, he's definitely going to be on the back foot," he told reporters on Wednesday.

Horn, whose colourful trainer Glenn Rushton says he has "the right hand from hell", says it's all part of his strategy to upset two-division world champion Crawford.

Horn will lose badly if he lets Crawford peck away at him with his single pot shots all night long. To beat the switch-hitting counter puncher Crawford , you have to make it messy by “Madison Square Garden only holds 22,000. If the crowd boo him – which I don’t think they will – Jeff will rise above it.”

"I can't sit back there and think I'm going to counter-fight another counter-fighter," he said.

"He's very good at doing that and I've just got to rough him up a little bit."

The 30-year-old - with a 3-4kg weight advantage over Crawford - said he felt in better shape than he did before his 2017 points title win over Manny Pacquiao.

"Weight-wise, I'm pretty good. I'm actually in the 70s (kgs) at the moment ... So if I can stay here or get a little bit lighter, I'm going to make it (the weight limit) easily," he said.

Rushton hinted Horn had dropped numerous opponents in the past few weeks while sparring.

"I don't punch and tell but I'm doing very well at the moment," he said in reply to a question about his sparring partners.

Horn will continue his preparation with American boxer Ray Robinson, who had previously beaten Crawford.

"I've been fighting for 10-plus years. I've got the skill - I've got the know-how," Horn said.
