Roy Jones Jr. Praises Tim Tszyu Ahead of Clash with Keith Thurman

Hall of Fame boxer Roy Jones Jr. has lauded Tim Tszyu’s abilities as the Australian champion gears up to face Keith Thurman on March 30 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Tszyu, the reigning WBO super welterweight champion, has garnered attention for his impressive performances inside the ring, drawing comparisons to his legendary father, Kostya Tszyu.

Jones expressed admiration for Tszyu’s skill set, highlighting his unique style and potential to make waves in the super welterweight division. While acknowledging Thurman’s prowess, Jones emphasized Tszyu’s status as a “different animal” and “something special,” reminiscent of his father’s legendary status in boxing.

With an undefeated record of 24-0, including notable victories over Tony Harrison and Brian Mendoza, Tszyu has established himself as a formidable force in the division. Jones commended Tszyu’s performance against Harrison, noting his ability to dominate the former champion with ease.

While refraining from labeling Tszyu as pound-for-pound, Jones sees him as a top contender within the super welterweight ranks, projecting him to be among the top 5 to 10 fighters in the division.

Thurman, a former unified welterweight champion, will make his return to the ring at 35 years old after a lengthy hiatus. The non-title bout between Tszyu and Thurman will headline an Amazon Prime pay-per-view event, featuring an exciting lineup of fights including matchups between Rolando Romero and Isaac Cruz, Erislandy Lara and Michael Zerafa, as well as Sebastian Fundora and Serhii Bohachuk.

The clash between Tszyu and Thurman promises to be a thrilling encounter, with both fighters aiming to make a statement in the super welterweight division.
