Tim Tszyu can secure a shot at a world title with a win over Kiwi Bowyn Morgan while Mark Hunt and Paul Gallen will face off in a highly anticipated exhibition in the biggest boxing event of the COVID impacted year at Bankwest stadium.
Tszyu’s father Kostya claimed the IBF world super-lightweight title against Hugo Pineda at the old Paramatta Stadium almost 25 years ago. Now Tszyu jnr will fight at the same venue.
If Tszyu emerges victorious in Wednesday’s Sydney Super Fight, then the Aussie will be fighting for the WBO super-welterweight title in his next fight if WBO super welterweight world champion Patrick Teixeira and contender Brian Castano cannot make their fight before January 6.
