Tim Tszyu probably won’t be getting a dinner invite from compatriot George Kambosos anytime soon.

Tszyu, the 27-year-old 154-pound contender, and Kambosos, the 28-year-old former three-belt lightweight champion, are two of the most well-known names in Australian boxing, but their relationship may be described, at best, as frosty or even nonexistent. Indeed, the two have taken swipes at each other through the press, and earlier this month, Kambosos stated that he does not “have a relationship” with Tszyu, a former training mate.

In a recent interview, Tszyu indicated that he believed Kambosos was nowhere near competitive in his lightweight unification fight with Devin Haney of Las Vegas earlier this month at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia. Haney won a unanimous decision to unify all four belts in the division. Asked about Kambosos’ past comments about him, Tszyu attempted to take the high road, while offering his opinion on Kambosos’ most recent performance.

“He’s always got bad stuff to say,” Tszyu said on The PBC Podcast. “I really can’t comment, you know.”

“I did watch the fight (Kambosos-Haney),” Tszyu continued. “In my opinion it was one-way traffic. I think Haney controlled the action from the opening bell and didn’t let him get close.”

Going into the fight, Tszyu said he believed Haney would defeat Kambosos.

“In all honesty the more I watched Devin the more I thought he was gonna win,” Tszyu said. “He’s super slick. Very hard to catch him, very hard to hit him. His punches are quite straight, and he does the fundamentals perfectly. Like literally perfectly.

“George is a wild puncher. He’s got punches coming from different directions. I think the only way for him to catch Haney is to throw one of those big ones.”

Kambosos recently declared that he had activated his rematch clause with Haney. Per the terms of their agreement, Haney was obligated to give Kambosos a rematch – in Australia – in the event that he defeated the Aussie in the first fight.

Tszyu (21-0, 15 KOs) is coming off a 12-round unanimous decision over Terrell Guasha in March in what was his American debut. Backed by Premier Boxing Champions, Tszyu, a WBO mandatory challenger, is now gunning for a shot at 154-pound undisputed champion Jermell Charlo (35-1-1, 18 KOs). BoxingScene.com previously reported that the two sides have reached a deal.

Tszyu, the son of legend Kostya Tszyu, indicated that he will be conducting his training camps in America from now on.
