Tim Tszyu: Jeff Horn Running Out of Options - We'll Fight in Future

Rising star Tim Tszyu, the son of Hall of Famer and former world champion Kostya Tszyu, believes a fight with Jeff Horn will eventually come down in the future.

According to Tszyu, he has a lot of options available - but Horn's potential big money options are shrinking.

“It’s a superfight in the making,” Tszyu said to WA Today. “He’s in a position where he hasn’t got many options, whereas I have got lots of options. I’m 24, I’ll be rated No.5 [in the world] and I’ve got the whole world in front of me. He is running out of options so he will call for a fight sooner or later. When Jeff comes around he will have his turn.”


Both boxers have upcoming fights this month.

Tszyu will face also unbeaten local Dwight Ritchie at the ICC Sydney Theatre on Wednesday night, for the WBO Global and IBF Pan Pacific super welterweight belts.

And later this month, Horn takes on fellow Australian Michael Zerafa in Bendigo.

Ritchie has begun taking shots at the younger Tszyu.

“When they see a camera in front of their face for the first time they get nervous and say things they don’t want to say,” Tszyu said. “I’m getting used to all of this, but it’s new to him. Let him enjoy his moment. Once he feels a few punches, he will feel differently.”

Tszyu received some much needed experience when he flew to the states to spar with Manny Pacquiao, who was preparing for last month's fight with Keith Thurman.

“Of course, I held my own,” Tszyu said. “I came back in a completely different mindset knowing I can conquer the world.

“Manny was cool. It’s the whole buzz of it, sparring him, running with him. Meeting the whole team there was unreal, something I’ve only dreamt about. To experience it was really cool. The best thing about it is I know the level I’m at, where I can get to. Through all of these experiences, stepping into the ring and sparring with these guys, I don’t just belong with these guys but can take over from them.”
