Another good win for Tim Tszyu tonight - TKO2.

Moves to 6-0(5).

Things will start getting interesting when they step up his level of opposition.

That southpaw Canberra middleweight who beat Shane Mosley Jr on the Pac-Horn undercard would be a very tough match-up for him.

Tszyu isn't quite ready for that level of opponent yet but it would be a good fight if it happens. They're both very heavy-handed.

Good profile of Junior Tszyu here:

Anyone else see Mundine say gay people deserve capital punishment?

I saw it. Rolled my eyes as I do anytime Mundine says anything. He truly is a flog

Not much action on the boxing thread since I last posted. About time I brought it up to date.

First things first. Oinker (who I notice has gone AWOL), I hope you didn't back Mayweather on points. GGG got shafted against Canelo. He won that fight wide.

The real action atm is in the heavyweight division. Some big fights coming up. Lucas Browne v Dillian Whyte in London next weekend. The winner will put himself in the mix for bigger fights. Anthony Joshua v Joseph Parker on 1 April. Alexander Povetkin v David Price on the undercard. Really enjoyed Deontay Wilder's win a couple of weeks back as well. Plenty of other good heavies will be in action over the next 6 weeks or so.

Jeff Horn's fight delayed. It's going to be very tough for him to win in the US. It's a completely different caper fighting over there.

Domestically, Tim Tszyu (now 7-0(5)) has only had one fight since I last posted. He won a 10-round unanimous decision against Wade Ryan late last year in a fight that moves him to the next level. Got injured in the process hence the lack of activity.

Locally, Canberra middleweight Dave Toussaint won the Australian middleweight title. He's undefeated & is very talented. Worth a look next time he fights.

Both Tszyu & Toussaint are scheduled to fight in May against as yet unspecified opponents.

All quiet on the boxing thread.

I've been following the heavyweight division & local Australian boxing.

Tim Tszyu is progressing nicely. He's 10 and 0 with 8 kayos.

Fights again in Bendigo on 8 Sep.

I'm intending to go down & take a look.

I thought Floyd Mayweather had retired !!!

He's going to fight Manny again.

Why ?

He was quoted as saying- "Another 9 figure pay day baby"

I've added this muppet to the list.

If it goes ahead (big if), you've answered your own question.

Heavyweight action on Sunday morning - Anthony Joshua v Alexander Povetkin.

Povetkin a big outsider but a live opponent for Joshua, imo.

Tim Tszyu first round kayo in Bendigo. Moves to 11-0 (9).

I also saw Andrew Moloney who was matched with a world class opponent & won. Based on what I saw, he's a good chance for a world championship in the not too distant future. Current Commonwealth champ & former Commonwealth games gold medalist.

That Bendigo promotion was televised live into the United States. No television coverage in Australia mind you but US tv was happy to pay to take it. Must be the first time in history an event (let along a sporting event) in Bendigo was televised live into the US.
