Tim Tszyu, son of the former world champion in the Welterweight Kostya Tszyu, in December, plans to hold his first fight in the professional ring.
Living in Australia, the 21-year-old athlete suffered only one loss at the Amateur level.
“I grew up in a Boxing gym and really want to do this. My grandfather’s all spelled out, and I work on the same schedule at which my father worked. We all saw what he went through. Few people are able to make a career”, – quotes the offspring of the famous boxer Boxingscene.com.
Konstantin Tszyu hung up the gloves in 2005, after the defeat of Briton Ricky Hatton. This loss was the second in his career, with 31 victory on a professional ring.
“Boxing is a brutal sport where you are constantly risking everything for the sake of all. And I hope to succeed due to the genes and hard work. My father got his way step by step and was always told that you need to consistently set ourselves one goal after another,” added Tim Tszyu.
