    Tim Tszyu dominated Jeff horn today and stopped him in the 8th rd. Tszyu is the son of Kostya Tszyu a former boxing champion. Tim fights at middleweight and looked really good stopping Horn who biggest win had been a 12 rd decision against Manny Pacquiao.

    Yes he looked like his pops physically and style wise and had an opponent who is hard to look good against because of his dirty boxing style.

    I know many Australians have milked regional titles to earn paper mandatory challenges and have been blown out because of this but Tyszu looks like the real deal and could win a legitimate world belt down the line.

    As for Horn he needs to retire, his bully boy style can't work against stronger longer men, with his degree and teaching certificate he has a career to fall back on and the purses will only get thinner from now on.

    PS, I heard Bob Arum mention that Australia could be a venue for Fury vs Wilder III, because the pandemic hasn't hit Australia as hard, if this fight could fit 16,000 fans into a football stadium that holds 50K+ a similar audience could attend the fight which would be comparable to a Vegas attendance. The only problem would be high rollers attending the fight from North America, Europe and Asia. I assume all would have to be quarantined and only the most hardcore of fans would put up with house arrest in a 5 star hotel for 2 weeks.
