Tszyu wanta Gausha as sparring partner

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

WBO #1 Tim Tszyu (21-0, 15 KOs) is looking to secure former opponent Terrell Gausha as a sparring partner to help him prepare for WBC, WBA, WBO, IBF 154 pound champion Jermell Charlo (35-1-1, 19 KOs) on January 28 in Las Vegas. Tszyu told the Herald newspaper, “If I get Terrell for sparring, that would be incredible. He’s got great defense, great experience, great timing. He’s aware of all the punches and has great skill. I think Brian Castano used him for his Charlo fight, so that would be perfect.

“Terrell is right up there, skill-wise. For someone to be in the American national team and an Olympian, that speaks a lot about where his skill is at. The pro game is a bit different, there’s politics and money and that stuff involved, whereas amateurs are based on who is the more skillful fighter. At one stage he was the best in America.”

  • If I were Tszyu’s trainer I would hask him to shut up his mouth, because any step and tactic in a very important fight should be a secret. I don’t hear other top fighters mentioning what they are doing in training, Tim should take that as an example

    • It’s the second time he’s done it too Burucho. A few weeks ago he came out and said he was sparring Charles Conwell and some other guys. I agree with you, might want to stop with all of this and just put the work in.

  • Charlo cannot actually fight. Big difference between a guy who can punch some and can actually fight. Lomo, Usuk, Chocolito, Pernell..there are 1000000 examples. Tszyu, having pedigree will dominate Charlo and let the excuses begin..
