Tim Tszyu just wished to escape his father’s shadow.
But, regrettably, for the undefeated 25-calendar year-outdated star, the class he confirmed following pulverising Jeff Horn in Townsville on Wednesday evening made it impossible not to imagine of his father Kostya’s winner spirit.
Tszyu confirmed he is a fighter of absolute class in and out of the ring in an emotional article-combat interview within the boxing ring at Queensland Place Bank Stadium.
Regarded for so long as the offspring of boxing legend Kostya, Tim delivered a effectiveness for the ages to definitely demolish Jeff Horn.
The gentleman who made his name by beating Manny Pacquiao in 2017 was made to search 2nd-charge by a fighter on the rise.
Horn’s camp threw in the towel at the conclusion of the eighth spherical as it became clear its pupil could choose no additional punishment following remaining out-boxed from the opening spherical.
