Former world champion in the first middleweight (up to 69.9 kg) American Tony Harrison (29-3-1, 21 KOs) can not wait for the fight against Australian Tim Tszyu (21-0, 15 KOs) for the title of “interim” WBO champion and I really hope nothing goes wrong. But if anything, he already knows whom and why to blame.
“If something happens in the time remaining before the fight … If Tim merges with a hand injury, then you know – this is a fraud. He is a swindler. I think the world will consider him a fraud. Because we will all know that so he just found a way to avoid a fight with Tony Harrison, ”said the American.
Recall that at the end of January, Tszyu was supposed to meet with the absolute division champion Jermell Charlo, but he broke his arm and refused to fight. As a result, Tim decided not to sit idle and box with Harrison.
Harrison told why he took the fight with Tszyu
According to Tony, they couldn’t come up with anything stupider in the opposing team:
“If I were in his place, I would never and never have agreed to such a replacement. His manager, his promoters had to say: “We have invested so much time and effort in the promotion of our guy, spent a lot of money on it – and here we are at the final goal. Charlo broke his arm? There is no shame in waiting (until he recovers). Let’s just don’t miss this chance.” This is the dumbest decision his management could have made.”
The Tszyu-Harrison fight is scheduled for March 12 in Sydney (Australia).
Meanwhile, Tszyu is not predicting anything good with Harrison.
