Tim Tszyu To Jeff Horn: Losing is Not an Option For Me - I Only Win!

Undefeated junior middleweight Tim Tszyu has nothing on his mind outside of his upcoming opponent, former WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn.

The Australian rivals will collide on August 26 in Townsville, and the local movement will allow up to 16,000 fans to be in attendance.

Their fight had previously been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"Nothing in my life matters besides boxing. I became obsessed [about beating Horn]. It's a sickness. I'm going to win. It meant training three or four times a day. I made a gym in my garage, I was able to learn things, stay in the garage for hours on end trying to perfect my craft," Tszyu told the Sydney Morning Herald.

"Being at home all those months, it made me realise that's all I want in life: to win in boxing."


Tszyu, 15-0 and 25-years-old, is taking a big step up in class against Horn.

Horn, 20-2-1 and 32-years-old, has big edge in experience with past fights against Manny Pacquiao, Terence Crawford, Michael Zerafa and others.

Tszyu, the son of highly respected former world champion Kostya Tszyu, is very motivated to make a name his own way in the sport.

He doesn't want to simply be known as the son of a famous fighter. Tszyu wants to create his own legacy - and he feels that goal can only be achieved by doing everything in his power to win.

"It doesn't matter about the occasion, how big the stadium is, I'm truly motivated in victory. All I want in my life is victory," Tszyu said. "It doesn't matter where it is, who it's against, I intend to do the same thing over and over again. Losing is not an option for me. I only win."

Not sure about you guys, but I'm excited for this fight. :boxing: It's not a huge fight, but boxing is slow now and Boxingscene has done a good job hyping up this fight.

[QUOTE=rudy;20656868]This has mismatch written all over it Horn is a washed up bum who got lucky once in his life[/QUOTE] Horn is game and that alone can win this, I think the biggest hurdle will be Horn having 2 fights…
