Thumbs up Where will Kostya Tszyu Fit in?

Once he retires, will he be totally forgotten forever as many others have been? What did he accomplish in his career?

I have heard some people say that he is the best to have ever fought at 140lbs, I don't know about that but their can't be many that were much better than he was.

Didn't Kostya get into the hall of fame?

Was he the best Australian Fighter of all time as Lewis was the best European?

I think Tzsyu is definitely one of the top junior welters of all time. On top of that, to still be one of the top men in his division at his age is amazing. He'll fall into line with the greats in due time.

Tszyu isnt really Australian, he's from Russia and although he says he's Ozzy you take your nationallity from your parents. Lewis wasnt the best european fighter either.

As for Tszyu he's all time great, no doubt about that.

Tszyu is Russian lets get that straight homie. He will always be considered as an all time great. Hatton's speech at the end of their fight said it all. Tszyu fought the best and held 3 world title belts at 140. I give him much respect.
