Harrison on Tszyu: “Tim is not Kostya”


Former world champion in the first middleweight (up to 69.9 kg) American Tony Harrison (29-3-1, 21 KOs) continues to explain why, despite the status of an underdog, he will prevail in the upcoming fight against unbeaten Australian Tim Tszyu (21-0, 15 KOs), with whom they will fight on March 12 in Sydney (Australia) for the vacant title of “interim” WBO world champion.

Tony does not consider Tim a weak opponent, but he does not advise overestimating him, especially comparing him with a great father.

Tim Tszyu – Tony Harrison: forecast and bets for the fight on March 12

“He has never fought a champion-level fighter yet,” Harrison insists. “I will be the first for him and perhaps the last at the same time, because the defeat will throw him far back, and he will have to rise again. I don’t want to say that he is a weak kid, but to say that he is like Kostya Tszyu is, in my opinion, a little too much.

“He is strong enough to compete in this weight, but do I consider him the strongest? Nope, said Tony. – Do I think he hits harder than Jermell (Charlo)? Nope. The time of the fight will come, and he will have to prove and show us everything he talks about so much. All chatting is over.”

And Harrison is also worried that Tim will “merge”.
