Fourth victory for Tszyu

The son of former Light Welterweight champion Kostya Tszyu recorded a solid win in his fourth professional fight on the Joseph Parker undercard in Auckland.

Tim Tszyu is the director and head trainer at the Kostya Tszyu Boxing Academy at PCYC St George.

He barely raised sweat against Kiwi Ivana Siau in his 71kg catch-fight with his power making his opponent freeze for a second.

Tszyu showed plenty of power in stopping the New Zealander in less than two rounds, picking him off at will leaving his opponent in a concussed state very early in proceedings.

Things got a bit too much for Siau when Tszyu snapped a nice left jab smack-bang in his face before a straight right left had his knees buckling a little due to the force of the blow.

The Kiwi fighter then put his hands back up to defend another onslaught of punches but then slumped down, realizing he was in no state to keep on fighting.  Surprisingly the referee didn’t step in despite Siau displaying signs of concussion leaving Tszyu to finish him off with right hand swipe which sent him to the canvas.

After the fight Tszyu said he was aware he had a long way to go to mastering the craft but wanted to create a name for himself rather than riding off the back of his father’s success. “Simple punches win the fights,” said Tszyu.

“I’m only on my fourth pro fight, I’ve got a lot more learning to do and I’m only going to get better and better,” he said. “Dad made such a big name and now it’s my turn to create my own path, my own journey. (source
