Tim Tszyu's Ascension: Is a Super Fight with Jermell Charlo in 2024?

In a remarkable journey towards boxing stardom, Tim Tszyu, the undefeated WBO 154-pound champion, has made a powerful statement in 2023. With an electrifying defense of his full WBO title against Brian Mendoza in Broadbeach, Australia, Tszyu left no doubt about his championship credentials, securing a one-sided decision win.

But Tim Tszyu’s ambition doesn’t stop there. He immediately set his sights on the man he’s been pursuing for over a year and a half, the three-belt champion, Jermell Charlo. In a post-fight callout, Tszyu challenged Charlo, exclaiming, “Charlo, where you at? Come get it.”

While Charlo would be a significant leap in competition for Tszyu, the Australian fighter has proven his mettle by making even tough opponents like Mendoza appear ordinary. Tszyu’s relentless power, durability, and all-around ability have set him apart in the super welterweight division.

Kostya Tszyu, Tim’s father and a Hall of Famer, has a storied boxing career. Tim, however, is blazing his own path, asserting himself as a special fighter. His victories over formidable opponents like Terrell Gausha, Tony Harrison, and Brian Mendoza have showcased his extraordinary potential.

Charlo’s move up to challenge Canelo Alvarez in the 168-pound division left Tszyu waiting. However, with Charlo’s decision to return to 154 pounds, the stage is set for a potential clash between the two champions.

While Charlo brings superior skills, speed, and power, Tszyu has proven to be a formidable force in the ring. With his rapid ascent and impressive victories, Tszyu has emerged as a genuine contender in the super welterweight division.

In addition to Tszyu, Australian super bantamweight contender Sam Goodman is also making waves. His wins over top contenders have solidified his standing as a legitimate title challenger. Ranked highly by both the IBF and WBO, Goodman has his sights set on a major title, with pound-for-pound sensation Naoya Inoue as his preferred opponent.

Tim Tszyu’s journey to stardom is no longer overshadowed by his father’s legacy. With an impending showdown against Jermell Charlo, Tszyu’s future in the world of boxing looks promising. As he continues to rise through the ranks, the boxing world eagerly anticipates whether 2024 will bring a super fight that could further solidify his place among the sport’s elite.
