Tim Tsyzu Explains Why He Need To Fight and Beat Jeff Horn

Unbeaten prospect Tim Tszyu has denied reports that he's unhappy with a 40-60 split for a potential showdown with former WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn.

The fight is being targeted for April by their respective promoters, and at the moment the contest is viewed as the biggest possible fight to be made in Australia.

Horn got his career back on track last month, when he scored two knockdowns to secure a close decision win over Michael Zerafa in their rematch.


Tszyu is not concerned with the money.

Tsyzu, the son of Hall of Famer and former unified champion Kostya Tszyu, wants to target a world title in the next twelve months.

In order to do so, he believes that it's necessary to beat the biggest name in his country, which at the moment is Horn.

To get the deal done, Tszyu has problem bending on the money to make it happen.

"I don't care about the split. It can be whatever he wants it to be. The only thing I care about is beating the best in Australia so I can then go and take on the world. I entered this sport to become the best, not to earn money. There are things that come with becoming the best, but I didn't come to this sport to make money out of it," Tszyu told Daily Telegraph.

"Horn is the number one guy in Australia and I need to clean out Australia before taking on the world. I have to beat Horn before I go on to bigger and better things. That is the only reason I want this fight."
