This much-anticipated fight sees the son of Kostya Tszyu, Tim Tszyu, come up against the man who famously beat Manny Pacquiao in 2017 to claim the WBO Welterweight Title, Jeff Horn.
Tszyu, who had to leave his base in NSW earlier than expected due to border restrictions, has promised to bring some real heat to the fight by stating that he bring a shedload of power to compliment his usually silky skills and overcome Horn.
Horn has warned Tszyu against trying to match him in a brawl insisting it is ‘not a good idea’.
The former champ will no doubt relish his underdog status as he aims to bring all his experience to the ring on Wednesday to prove this challenge may have come too soon for the young challenger. This fight is absolutely too close to call. Remind yourself of just what the gutsy battler Horn is with this classic round against Michael Zerafa.
This bout has been scheduled for Wednesday 26th August at 7pm.
The fight is taking place in Townsville at the Queensland Country Bank Stadium.
The bout will be broadcast live on Main Event via Foxtel. Check out or Boxing on TV Guide for key info on this and all other upcoming bouts.
