Horn-Tszyu on August 26

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

Former WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn will clash with IBF#7 light middleweight Tim Tszyu on August 26 in Townsville, Queensland with a capacity attendance of 16,000 approved by the Queensland Government.

“I can’t tell you how happy I am,” Horn said. “To finally have a new date and to know I’ll be fighting in Townsville in front of a home crowd is just great. I’m also proud that this fight will do its bit to help Queensland’s economy get moving again and especially North Queensland.”

Tim Tszyu stated, “I’m really excited for this fight. My Dad fought in front of packed Townsville Stadium. I hope to put on a great show for everyone.”

  • Horn is really risking his health and life longevity by continuing to fight. Horn’s style of fighting is tailored made for frequent head shots and injuries since he tends to come straight in to the opponent rather than moving his head. Sad, he is so young and needs to consider retiring. My opinion…

    • GOOD LET HIM GET MORE HITS TO THE HEAD AND THEN HE WILL RELISE THATS HES NOT A GOOD BOXER AND HE THINK HE IS

  • Good for Australia
    If Tszyu is any good, it should be easy for him. If Not, competitive fight

  • The last time the majority gave Horn 0% chance of winning he defeated Manny Pacquiao. He may pull it off again.

  • Round 9 of the Pac V Horn fight. Horn proved himself as one of the toughest men in boxing anywhere on the planet.

    He knocked out Zeraffa in his last fight while basically unconscious. He’s an animal (with all due respect). He might be finished – he might bring Timmy out to deep water and drown him. It’s a must see fight. I hope he is paid well for it. Sad to see keyboard warriors showing disrespect to such a warrior. He’s not the most talented boxer but he’s got one of the biggest hearts I’ve ever seen from a lifetime of watching fights.

    • horns big mistake? he achieved success and tall poppy syndrome is rife in Australia. I do not think he is an elite level fighter but he is a good fighter with great heart, humble, family man, does not deserve the abuse some muppets are giving. Usually the biggest haters are bogan never do wells
