Tim Tszyu v Takeshi Inoue to face off ahead of World Boxing Organisation world title fight


Australian boxing sensation Tim Tszyu reveals his next big move ahead of world title fight – and describes it the ‘most important’ of his career

  • Australian boxer Tim Tszyu will face Japanese opponent Takeshi Inoue
  • Super-welterweight bout will be held on the Gold Coast on November 17
  • Tszyu is gearing up for a shot at Brian Castano’s super welterweight world title
  • He has beaten Jeff Horn and Stevie Spark in the last 13 months 
  • Inoue is the WBO’s No.7-ranked fighter in their division










Japanese opponent Takeshi Inoue has forecast a knockout victory over Australian world title hope Tim Tszyu  when the pair meet at the Gold Coast Convention Centre in November.

The venue for the November 17 super-welterweight bout was confirmed on Thursday, Tszyu putting his undefeated record on the line ahead of a World Boxing Organisation world title fight next year.

The WBO last month mandated Tszyu (19-0, 14KO), as his division’s No.1-ranked challenger, to fight for Brian Castano’s super welterweight world title.

The 31-year-old Inoue (17-1-1), the WBO’s No.7-ranked fighter in the division, plans to disrupt Tszyu’s rampaging path to the top.

‘Tszyu is a very good fighter but I’m very confident in my ability,’ Inoue said via a translator on Thursday.

‘This is an exciting opportunity for me to make a mark on the world stage and I truly believe I will finish Tszyu with a knockout in this fight’.

In just 13 months, Tszyu has beaten former world champion Jeff Horn, Kiwi Bowyn Morgan, Irishman Dennis Hogan and Stevie Spark, all inside the distance.

But he declared this fight the most important of his burgeoning career.

‘Inoue is a very accomplished and talented fighter. He is crafty in the ring and like all Japanese boxers, very brave.’ Tszyu said.

‘He will need to be though because I know he has never fought anyone like me before.

‘I’m putting in the hard work now and come fight night, I’m going to be ready to show the world once again just what I can do’.
