Jeff Horn Team Member Jumps Ship To Rival Tim Tszyu

What some are calling a key development, there is now an interesting twist with a member of Jeff Horn's training team jumping ship to the camp of Australian rival Tim Tszyu.

According to 7 News, trainer Dundee Kim, who worked with Horn every week for the last six years, is now on board with Tszyu.

“How Jeff moves around, I just show him,” Kim said to the outlet. “No hard feelings with Jeff, I ended my chapter with him in January. I respect Jeff Horn so much, he beat Manny Pacquiao, Manny Pacquiao’s my hero. If Jeff couldn’t finish Tim within six rounds, I think he might have trouble.”

Kim left Horn's camp in order to become a full-time trainer.

Tsyzu believes the hire of Kim has given him an additional advantage in the fight. 

“Who knows him better than Dundee? He’s been with him nearly his whole career,” Tsyzu told 7 News.

“Whatever happened, that’s their past. Coming here and learning from Dundee, it’s a great insight.”

Horn and Tszyu are slated to collide in the first week of September, in a junior middleweight clash, with the winner being in line for a world title shot. The date was pushed back a few times due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“I feel like I’m an animal and I’m ready to eat,” Tszyu said.

The fight with Horn will be contested over a ten round distance and there will not be a rematch clause involved.

25-year-old Tszyu, the son of boxing legend Kostya Tszyu, has an undefeated record of 15-0.

Horn has the clear edge in experience after facing opponents like Manny Pacquiao, Terence Crawford and others. He hasn’t fought since winning a tough rematch over Michael Zerafa last December.

Simply put, the fraud's former colleagues doesn't believe in him no more. His gift win over pacquiao proves that forever he cannot have judges who will gift him with a win. When tzsyu exposed horn again, he has nowhere to…
