Tim Tszyu To Headline First PPV on May 15 in Sydney

It was announced that rising prospect Tim Tszyu will be featured in a high profile headline bout when he faces Joel Camilleri for the Australian Super Welterweight Title on May 15.

The 24-year-old boxer will take on Camilleri in Sydney at the Star Casino.

For the up and coming Tszyu (12-0, 10 KOs), it's going to be his first pay-per-view headline bout.


Camilleri (17-5-1), 28, has the edge in experience, but Tszyu is not bothered by the pressure of performing.

“Pressure is good,” Tszyu told “Without pressure, you’ve really got nothing that motivates you. A little bit of pressure is fine, I know how to deal with it. That pressure just motivates me to train harder, to wake up every morning — I’ve always got that goal set for myself: every fight from now is going to be a big one, and is going to be in front of everyone.

“[Camilleri is] the Australian champion for a reason. He’s a very good fighter. He’s got some good power, got some good movement. But then again, I focus on myself mainly, focus on my training, only on what I have to do, and I know the keys to victory, and I will capitalise on it.”

Tszyu signed on with Australia’s No Limit Management to establish himself in his home country. And once that happens, he will eventually look for the big names in the United States.

“There’s plenty of time for America,” Tszyu said.

“I have to establish myself here first in Australia, become a big pay-per-view draw, so that when I do go to America in the future where, of course, there will be world titles and all that, I’m not just going to be there to perform, but I’ll have the whole stadium packed with Aussies, with Russians, with everyone around the world that are fans.”

Tim Tszyu is 24 years old already where the f*** did my life go, I remember watching his dad just a few years ago who was incredible. Hope Tim carries the name well and has a great career.

Tszyu has said that he wants a few more fights under his belt, then he will be ready for Horn. He also said that there are plenty of holes in Horn's defence which is a something that his 'trainer' apparently…

I think tszyu will struggle above domestic level. He doesn't have the amateur pedigree or power his dad had. Good fighter but he gets an easy ride with Aussie judges because of his last name. He had a close fight…
