Australian junior middleweight contender Tim Tszyu (21-0, 15 KOs) promises to fight unified divisional champion below pound American Errol Spence (28-0, 22 KOs), who, it seems, will soon change division – boxing in the spring at 69.9 kg with ex-world champion compatriot Keith Thurman.
On March 12, in Sydney (Australia), Tszyu will fight with former world champion American Tony Harrison (29-3-1, 21 KOs) – the vacant WBO interim title will be at stake. The Australian favorite did not seem to like the fact that Spence was betting on Harrison in this fight: “I bet 10 thousand USD that Tony will upset this guy.”
I’ll bet 10 on a Tony Harrison upset

“It’s all rubbish, –
sure Tszyu. “Once I get Harrison out of the way and[the undisputed division champion]Jermell Charlo, only Spence will be left. If he’s ready to wrestle big dudes, then I’m ready. Understand that I don’t care who they put opposite. Even if it’s the Hulk, I’ll get in the ring and try to knock him out. I believe that soon I will become the absolute world champion and will rule the division. Like me – 1% – we are ready to fight with anyone. So it was before. This will be the case in the future.”
Harrison, by the way, is very good in the ability to promote the event as much as possible. He told why he accepted the fight with Tszyu and stated that he was too easy for him. According to the American, “Tim is promoted by money and a name.”
