Sakio Bika, Tim Tszyu Pick Up Solid Wins in Sydney Bouts

Star City Hotel & Casino, Sydney, Australia - Former WBC super middleweight champion Sakio Bika (34-7-3, 22 KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over Serbian Geard Ajetovic (31-16-1, 16 KOs) to capture the vacant WBC International title.

Bika, well known for his rough tactics, lost two points due to low blows - but he had the clear edge in the fight and was too seasoned for Ajetovic.

It was Bika's second win a row since returning to the sport back in July, when he picked up a TKO win over Luke Sharp. The veteran had been out of the ring since April 2015, when he moved up in weight and lost a twelve round unanimous decision to WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson.

weigh in-0002 - Sakio _The Scorpian_ Bika (720x480)

Bika is still aligned with powerful boxing adviser Al Haymon and his Premier Boxing Champions stable. Once Bika rebuilds himself further, another opportunity of worth will certainly be waiting. 

The son of a legend, junior middleweight prospect Tim Tszyu (7-0, 5 KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over Wade Ryan (14-6, 3 KOs) to win the vacant WBC Asian Boxing Council Continental title.

There was a scare in the first round, as Tszyu hit the floor for the first time in his career. He overcame the knockdown, fighting back to regain control of the contest until the final bell.

Tszyu turned pro back in December of 2016. This was his first decision win since his pro debut. He fought five other times in 2017 and stopped his opponents in three rounds or less. 

The bout with Ryan was his first ten round contest - impressive for a boxer to have in only his seventh outing as a pro.

Tszyu is the son of former world champion and Hall of Famer Kostya Tszyu.

Also on the card, Darragh Foley (13-2) picked to an eight round technical decision victory over Ryuji Hachimitsu Ikeda (12-4). The fight was stopped early due to a cut on Ikeda from an accidental foul.

Bika better be done at world level, can't believe he's still fighting. He should stick to domestic dust-ups down under. He can fight guys like Jake Carr, Rohan Murdock and the Dungbeetle Destroyer
