Strap in fight fans, Australia’s top ranked boxer is about to step into the ring once again as another challenger looks to take on his perfect 17-0 record.
Tim Tsyzu will fight Brisbane-based Irishman and former two-time world title challenger Dennis 'Hurricane' Hogan tonight (Wednesday, March 31) at Newcastle’s Entertainment Centre.
Son of boxing legend Kostya, Tsyzu will be competing with Hogan to edge closer to a world title shot, as the winner earns the right to take on the WBO's current super welterweight champion, Brian Castano.
Tsyzu is coming off the back of a spectacular first round knockout win over Bowyn Morgan in December. The 26-year-old is now ranked inside the top 10 with all major sanctioning bodies.
Hogan on the other hand represents a big challenge for Tszyu having fought a vast majority of his career at super welterweight, but most recently stepping up to take on WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo in December 2019. He enters the ring tonight with a record of 28-3-1.
Boxing fans can watch the Steel City Showdown live and with better access to all of the action than ever before, thanks to Main Event showcasing the fight on Foxtel and Kayo.
