Get ready for a boxing showdown like no other! In a move that’s either groundbreaking or incredibly rare, Tim Tszyu is setting up his very first title defense before even officially claiming the title he’s defending. The anticipation is building, and the stakes are sky-high!
No Limit Boxing just dropped the bombshell – Tim Tszyu, the reigning WBO interim super welterweight champion, is ready to rumble with interim WBC champion Brian Mendoza on October 15th. But here’s the twist: Tszyu will be elevated to full champion status the moment Jermell Charlo steps into the ring to face none other than Canelo Alvarez. It’s a strategic chess move that’s sending shockwaves through the boxing world.
With Charlo pursuing his own path, we’re about to witness one of the most epic matchups the division has to offer. Tszyu, with his unblemished record of 23 wins and 17 knockouts, is on a mission to prove that he’s the undisputed king at 154 pounds. His recent impressive victories over Tony Harrison and Carlos Ocampo have made him a force to be reckoned with.
But hold on tight because Brian Mendoza is no pushover. Fresh off a career-defining Knockout of the Year contender against Sebastian Fundora, Mendoza (with a record of 22 wins, 2 losses, and 16 knockouts) is as aggressive and durable as they come. He’s here to make Tszyu earn every inch of that title defense.
What makes this clash even more thrilling is that, technically, it’s BoxRec’s #1 vs. BoxRec’s #2 at super welterweight, especially since Charlo is out of the picture due to inactivity. It’s not the ultimate measuring stick, but it sure is an exciting factoid that adds to the intrigue.
So, mark your calendars, clear your schedules, and get ready for a night of heart-pounding, fist-flying action on October 15th. Tszyu vs. Mendoza promises to be a battle for the ages, and you won’t want to miss a single electrifying moment!
