One day Tim Tszyu could be an Australian boxing legend (of Russian descent) in his own right.
Son of famed fighting son Kostya Tszyu, Tim Tszyu has ended the boxing calendar year in the same way he started and the same way he always does.
He was pushed however today in Australia against a very difficult opponent in the form of Japan’s Takeshi Inoue
The Russian-Australian fighter battered Inoue over twelve rounds,
Collecting a unanimous points decision verdict.
His values of be true, be better evident this year.
A man and boxer clearly trying to be a better man then he was yesterday.
Evident in the quality of his work this year.
Certainly a huge future this Tszyu.
He has shown tremendous promise thus far and if he continues to improve in the quality of his work like he has been doing there is no logical reason why he can’t knock on the door of a title shot.
Sooner or later.
Going the 12 rounds today surely would have done him some good. Workmanlike manner in execution of the job done.
A star in the making in the super-welterweight (154 pounds) division.
Today’s win takes him to 20-0 (15 KO) as a professional.
