Tszyu targets GGG

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

WBO #2, IBF #3 light middleweight Tim Tszyu (17-0,13 KOs) has ambitious long-range plans if he defeats WBC #8 middleweight Dennis Hogan (28-3-1, 7 KOs) as expected on Wednesday at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre, Newcastle, NSW Televised on Foxtel Main Event Pay-Per-View.

“My dream fight would be against GGG,” Tszyu told news.com.au. “He’s been my idol for the last five, six years. At one stage I idolized him and then at another stage I said ‘You know what? That would be a fight I’d love to take one day.’”

Regarding Hogan, Tszyu stated, “It’s another step closer. Dennis Hogan has been in with Charlo, Munguia, the top boys in the division, and he’s given them trouble. So it’s going to be good to see how I compare against him to the way they fought.”

  • Yeah its best you avoid Castano and Charlo or even Lara and fight a washed up GGG in a few years time. Why’ll your at it keep avoiding Zerafa

  • Let’s get real here.By the time GGG wants to fight Tim he’ll be 40+ and the power will still be there,I suggest Tim starts to look around where he is now and what he’s up against …..Tim maybe a real champion but I suggest a couple of years away just yet.

  • I believe this is nothing more than a marketing tool for Tsyzu’s team to gain attention and be noticeable in the boxing world. I don’t buy into this conjecture as it’s all talk and no show.

  • Just focus on Hogan first cause he may be the underdog but has the tools to pull off the upset. IF Tszyu does win against Hogan, then we can entertain a GGG fight…

    • That is just a comment, but its very unlikely. There is a kid from Uzbekistan that is a mixture of GGG and Lomachenko, Israil Madrimov. Tszyu vs Madrimov is really a dream fight

      • Just took a look at Israil Madrimov, who I hadn’t previously seen. Check out his fight against Eric Walker. It’s on YouTube. Go straight to the 5:05 mark of the video. The ref is hilariously incompetent throughout that round.

        As far as Israil Madrimov, not sure he’s quite the level of GGG or Loma, but I see where you’re coming from. Good speed, good skills, good power, and fights well orthodoxic or southpaw. Should only get better with experience.

        • Not quite on their level YET, I meant. He’s only had 6 fights. He does look like a damn good prospect though.

  • Marketing, that’s all, but he wouldn’t be saying this if the GGG that crushed Daniel Geale (Australian) were around today. Tszyu still green, I guess he needs at least 4 more fights against good opponents to be ready for the top guys, but right now I doubt he could be able to defeat Fundora, Charlo, Castaño or Israil Madrimov (the best 154 right now IMO). Let see how he does vs Hogan first to have an idea how improved he is

  • Is it me or does this kid tend to pause to admire his work every time he throws the right hand?

  • Past his prime or not GGG will knock the shit out of him, Tszyu is taking way too much shots !! Triple G will ko him inside 6 !!
