The undefeated Australian fighter Tim Tszyu will continue his career on American soil, as this Saturday he will face the American Terrell Gausha, in a 12-round clash, for the Global Super Welterweight title endorsed by the World Boxing Organization (WBO) and which will be the star of a billboard that will take place this Saturday, at the Armory Arena, in Minneapolis, United States.
The fight is organized by Premier Boxing Champions and will be televised on Showtime.
This Friday, at the official weigh-in, Tim Tszyu weighed in at 153.25 pounds, while Terrell Gausha stopped the pendulum at 153.25 pounds.
The son of Hall of Famer Kostya, Tim Tszyu will make his American debut after establishing himself in his native Australia as one of the most dangerous contenders in the 154-pound division.
He will look to get closer to a world title shot with a win over the 2012 USA Olympian Gausha, who represents the toughest test of Tszyu’s career and most recently knocked out Jamontay Clark in two rounds on SHOWTIME in March 2021. .
This fight was scheduled for March 19 in support of the undisputed junior middleweight championship rematch between lineal/WBA/WBC/IBF champion Jermell Charlo (34-1-1, 18 KOs) and WBO champion Brian Brown (17-0-2), 12 knockouts).
The card was scrapped when Castano suffered a minor bicep tear, forcing a two-month delay and prompting Showtime and Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) to move Tszyu-Gausha to his own event.
