Tim Tszyu Senses Opportunity To Overtake Tony Harrison in Later Rounds

Top junior middleweight contender Tim Tszyu (21-0, 15KO) is heading into the biggest fight of his career against former WBC champion Tony “Super Bad” Harrison (29-3-1, 21KO). Moreover, he believes success will come in the later rounds against a fading former champion.

Tszyu worked through the rankings of the WBO to position himself to take on the undisputed champion Jermell “Iron Man” Charlo. The fight was a go for January 28, until the undisputed champion suffered a broken hand, postponing the fight.

Looking to stay busy while Charlo heals up, Tszyu shocked the boxing community by accepting Super Bad’s offer to fight.


In a press conference, The Aussie said he believes he can catch Harrison in trouble after four rounds. During an interview on Brian Custer’s The Last Stand Podcast, Tszyu elaborated on that statement by pointing out how he will get stronger as his opponent’s energy level depletes.

“I feel like a Terminator – I’m in this Terminator mode. So round by round, I’m just going to keep getting stronger, quicker, my stamina and my endurance. We know Tony is good at the start. He’s nice and sharp, but you know how three times, in the later rounds, what happens? It goes tumbling down.”

“I’m the opposite. Instead of tumbling, I’ll go up.”

The Aussie capped off the topic by focusing on the three times it has happened to the former champion, and never to himself. He plans on increasing that number to four in their fight.
