THE TIME IS NOW: TSZYU V GAUSHA FIGHT PREVIEW
Everything you need to know including how to watch the fight live, this Sunday at 12:00pm AEDT
It’s been building for years. 27 to be exact. Tim Tszyu always knew he’d end up here, in the boxing epicentre of the world, but it’s come fast and so far it’s come easy.
This week Tszyu will make his US debut and face the toughest challenge of his career after 20 bouts in Australia. He already makes history, becoming the first Australian to headline on debut in America, but this is the fight that will lead to a world title shot, and that is the goal.
This next step, the hype, the attention doesn’t phase him, he’s the “coolest, calmest, well rounded young man,” says Manager and lifelong mentor, Glen Jennings, but when he steps into the ring at The Armory in Minneapolis on Sunday, March 27 AEDT to face former US Olympian, Terrell Gausha, that character switches, he becomes Tim Tszyu, The Destroyer.

The people in Tszyu camp have done it all before, they were with Kostya as he took on the world but it doesn’t feel like deja vu for them, this is a new chapter, although it’s the same objective, “seek and destroy” says Glen.
The Tszyu camp has gone to plan, Tim is relaxed and he’s thriving on the American fight hype. The team has landed in Minneapolis and the official schedule is about to commence, with the press conference and weigh in. Follow along here:
TALE OF THE TAPE
On paper, Tszyu and his opponent, 34 year old Terrell Gausha aren’t too different. The American, has a slight height and reach advantage but doesn’t hold a clean sheet or the knockout power of Tszyu. He’s faced some notable names, including Austin Trout, Erislandy Lara and Erickson Lubin in his career and if there’s one thing we know, it is this fight is going to be entertaining. Gausha says he wants to get rid of Tim quickly.
