Tim Tszyu is going to rock Las Vegas like Kostya Tszyu did 21 years ago


Despite the fact that the prospect of the first middleweight (up to 69.9 kg) Tim Tszyu (21-0, 15 KOs) is a strong underdog of the fight against the absolute champion Jermell Charlo (35-1-1, 19 KOs), he is set in what To some extent repeat the amazing success of his father in 2001.

Then, we recall, Kostya Tszyu arrived in Las Vegas (USA) and already in the 2nd round knocked out Zab Judah, which brought him the status of an absolute super lightweight.

On January 28, Tim himself will arrive in Las Vegas. Tszyu said
AARthat the legendary fight of his father against Juba he watched many times.

“For everyone in childhood, dad is a superhero and this fight made him a real superhero not only in my eyes, but for the whole world,” Tim said, adding that he draws inspiration from this ancestor’s victory as well.

According to him, the comparison “with the greatest fighter from Australia” is “not bad”, but nothing more.

Tszyu: “I watched people in eyes and saw everything…

“It doesn’t bother me. I think I myself have already lit up, created myself, started myself. But it will be different. This is history. It’s something else, he said. – I think that Charlo is quite possible to win. He’s very good, excellent at what he does, but he can definitely be beaten. I don’t want to make any predictions, but I’m in crazy, phenomenal shape and I’m just starting to gain momentum right now. Mentally and physically I am in excellent condition, and this will play a big role in what lies ahead for me.

It’s funny how Tszyu believes that he will be more powerful than the 32-year-old “old man” Charlo. A nervous Jermell claims he’ll knock out Tim brightly because he’s “fucked up by his ridiculous farts”.
