Former WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn is prepared to face Australian rival Tim Tszyu on any possible date - as long as there is at least eight weeks notice to conduct a proper training camp.
The 32-year-old fight was scheduled to face Tszyu on April 22 in Townsville, but the entire event was pushed back due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Horn has been out of the ring since his December thriller, when he won a ten round decision over Michael Zerafa in their rematch.
The between Horn and Tszyu took months of negotiations before the two sides were able to reach an agreement on the terms.
To make the fight happen, Tszyu walked away from his demand for a twelve round distance, while Horn dropped his push for a rematch clause.
"Training was going really well. I was on a good pace to get ready for the fight," Horn told Ben Damon on the Main Event Boxing Podcast.
"I'm really happy I've got (former North Queensland Cowboys forward) Chris Mucket on board, he knows all about where you should be sitting at what points and not overtaining.
"I'm very happy to have him on board. I feel like I was getting nice and strong, but now this little hiccup, I can't go to the gym. I'll have a little break, a little breather and see what becomes of it."
Horn usually needs around ten to twelve weeks to train for a fight, but he plans to keep himself in shape until a new date is presented - and then take eight weeks to get himself in fighting form.
"I've said to the promoter, Dean Lonergan, give me minimum eight weeks. I need eight weeks' notice," Horn said.
"Coming out of isolation and not doing much at all, I need eight weeks - and that's pushing it. That's the finest line. I'd love to have my normal 10 to 12, but I'll smash training as hard and fast as I can."
