As previously reported, undefeated Australian star Tim Tszyu will take on former world champion Tony Harrison in a 12-round WBO interim-super welterweight world title fight, Sunday, March 12, at Qudos Bank Arena in his hometown of Sydney, Australia.
Support from the NSW Government has enabled the high-profile return to Sydney and Qudos Bank Arena for Tszyu, who will attempt to win his maiden world title in his first fight on home soil since defeating Japan’s Takeshi Inoue in November 2021.
The bout will be one of the most significant fights in Australia’s history and Main Event will provide fans around the country with live coverage available on Pay-Per-View through Foxtel and Kayo Sports.
Harrison is the former WBC super welterweight world champion and remains the only fighter to have defeated Tszyu’s previously-scheduled opponent in current undisputed champion Jermell Charlo.
As part of the undercard, Tszyu’s younger brother and rising super welterweight star, Nikita Tszyu, will enter the ring on his older sibling’s card for the very first time against undefeated southpaw and current Australasian champion Bo Belbin.
World ranked super bantamweight contender Sam Goodman takes on Irish former world champion T.J Doheny in a 10 round all action fight with world title implications on the line.
And former Olympian showstopper Paulo ‘Sweet P’ Aokuso continues his race towards an historic world title inside seven fights against experienced Cuban Yunieski Gonzalez.
“Tim Tszyu is the undisputed superstar of Australian boxing and I am delighted he gets to fight for his very first world title in front of his incredible hometown fans in Sydney,” No Limit Boxing CEO, George Rose.
“Tony Harrison is Tim’s toughest test by a mile and he will no doubt be ready to bring his very best on what I expect to be a tough day down under for him inside and outside the ring.
“It’s going to be a history-making event with an atmosphere never seen before at a world title fight in Australia. Sydney is not going to know what hit it when the first bell rings on Sunday, March 12 (Saturday, March 11 in USA).”
