Tim Tszyu is not going to “go fight in a pub in front of 200 spectators”


Australian top middleweight prospect Tim Tszyu (21-0, 15 KOs) once again dismissed the idea of ​​one day fighting former potential rival Michael Zerafa (30-4, 19 KOs). Named in a comment
fox sports this option is “completely stupid”.

Now 28-year-old Tszyu is preparing to enter the biggest fight of his career at the end of January. In Las Vegas (USA), he will fight with the absolute division champion Jermell Charlo (35-1-1, 19 KOs). That is, even this winter, Tim can win the WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO and The Ring belts, having done what even his father, famous in the ring, failed to do.

Last year, Zerafa blew everyone away when he pulled out of a fight with Tszyu at the last minute, citing concerns about COVID restrictions. When asked by the Australian channel, how about a fight with Mike once, he brushed it off.

“I’m going to Vegas to fight for four belts, I’m fighting, let’s say, in the Super Bowl, so what? I’ll come back and perform at a show in a pub that will be watched by 200 people,” Tszyu asked rhetorically. “I don’t even want that name to ever be mentioned again.”

In the spring, Zerafa upset prospect Isaac Hardman, previously retired age-old Anthony Mundine, and knocked out local star Jeff Horn in 2019. November 23 Michael will fight with an unbeaten Italian Danilo Creati.

Tszyu is flying to America next week for a 10-week training for the e-Charlo fight. Prior to that, he trained in Thailand.

“My feeling is that if you are in boxing, you need to go back to the roots, and in Thailand it’s like being in the jungle: you are in the middle of nowhere, it’s hot, it’s just a good place to just work,” Tszyu said.

Recall that recently Zerafa revealed the allegedly real reason for the failure of the battle with Tszyu – he was “ordered”.
