Tszyu: I will be world champ in 2020

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

IBF #7, WBO #9 light middleweight Tim Tszyu (15-0, 11 KOs) has a world title bout on his radar and is confident he will become a world champion like his famous Hall of Fame father Kostya Tszyu.

“In 2020, I want a world title,” Tszyu told the Herald newspaper. “I want a world title, international-ranked opponents. I want to get to that #1 stage. I’ve got a great promoter, we’ve got fight dates. It’s about climbing the mountain. The world champion is who I want!

“We’ve got the right people behind me, I’m confident in my ability and I know where I have to go. I would love to bring a mega-fight, a world title fight, to Australia.”

We have a few rules to make our comment section more enjoyable for everyone.
1. Keep comments related to boxing.
2. Be respectful, polite and keep it clean.
3. Personal attacks will not be tolerated.
Offending posts will be removed.
  • Talk is cheap, but actual performance remains to be seen. Considering how many dozens of cracker jack titles and second chances everyone under the sun gets today in boxing, yep, I am sure Tszyu will win some kind of title or belt even if it comes from the bottom of a boxer commissioner’s candy popcorn box.

    • Maybe start with one of the silver or international titles and work up to one of the worlds. Or could also start a new weight class,

  • Just keep winning Tim, stay humble and the rest will come. I went to see KT v Jesse Leija in Melbourne back in 2001 in front of 28,000 fans and it was huge. Would love to see T Tszyu do the same.
