Ndou: Tszyu would beat Teixeira

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

Two- time world champion Lovemore Ndou talked to Fightnews.com® and predicts WBO#9 Tim Tszyu (16-0, 12 KOs) will defeat WBO light middleweight champion Patrick Teixeira (31-1, 22 KOs) when they collide with the title up for grabs. “Tim Tszyu showed with the demolition of Jeff Horn in eight rounds that he will be victorious when he does challenge for the WBO title,” said Ndou. It was announced before the Horn vs. Tszyu fight, that the winner will get a WBO championship opportunity.

“I have looked at the WBO champion Patrick Teixeira’s most recent bout when he outpointed Carlos Adames and I am confident that Tim Tszyu would defeat Teixeira. Tszyu has similar skills to his father Kostya who I boxed many rounds against when Hall of Fame trainer Johnny Lewis trained both of us.

“What surprised me that our former world champions Jeff Fenech and Anthony Mundine both predicted a Jeff Horn win. To me, it was obvious that even though Jeff Horn defeated boxing legend Manny Pacquiao he has been on the decline since that victorious ring appearance in 2017 against Pacquiao.

“If Tim Tszyu needs a warm-up bout before challenging WBO champ Teixeira, he could get a good fight against fellow Aussie against former WBO title challenger Dennis Hogan who was robbed against Jamie Munguia in Mexico. Hogan deserved the decision against the Mexican but against Tszyu, Hogan would not hear the final bell.

“Tim Tszyu is now the face of Australian boxing and will give the fans the same outstanding performances his father Kostya did during the 1990s.

“I would like to thank Jeff Horn on how he has kept Australian boxing alive since his great win over Manny Pacquiao in 2017. I would like to see Jeff retire now after a marvelous career.

“Jeff is an educated man who has two beautiful daughters and a loving wife so now he should enjoy his life and not jeopardize his health. All Australians should applaud Jeff and what he did for boxing in this country.”

  • This is the way it should be. Citizens voting for the hometown fighter. Support fighters from your own country. In the great USA, the fans will turn their back on their fellow citizen and cheer for the visitor, based on skin color. US Boxing fans can learn something about National pride from the Australians. And from the rest of the world for that matter smh.

  • Sorry Ndou, but most of your peroration about Tim is just senseless and unrealistic. Tim has not similar skills to his father Kostya, also, he is not one or two fights away from challenging for a world title, he needs more. Dennis Hogan would be a good test for Tim, rather than a tune up fight and no way whatsoever Tim one day could emulate what Kostya Tszyu did in the ring.
    Tim is just a good kid with some talent, that could be enhanced with his discipline, but not at the level of Kostya.

    • I agree to disagree, All Tim is lacking that his father had was a KO punch, Tim doesnt have that power but uses difference punches like his body shots that dropped Horn.
      2 more step up fights and he should be ready. Hogan would be the 1st step up.

  • Needs to prove himself in the MMA ring before he fights for a title. The way it should be. Mayweather did it and so did Ali. Imagine Sonny Liston V the predator as the main event and Tim V Kabib in the undercard.

    • I believe Timmy trained some capoeira a few years back, so maybe not far from the truth. Hurricane Hogan was mentioned above and he had fellow Irishman Conor McGregor in his corner recently so all this could come together…… Oscar v Malignaggi is probably the most lightly though according to the rumours I’m hearing from Brooklyn

      • Oscar V Tim. De La Hoya avoided Kyosta – there is unfinished family business…… I can see the headlines now – should be his next fight. Youth V Age – Age V Experience- Experience V Raw power – Raw power V Technical Brilliance- Technical Brilliance V Age. Could be shown in PPVs in the cinema to be honest.

  • Jeff Horn is a Boxing Fluke. He was humiliated and badly exposed by Terence Crawford and his victory over the Fuckman was dubious to say the least.
