THE LOWDOWN

JEFF HORN

  • Jeff Horn's only two losses have come in his last four fights, including a TKO to Michael Zerafa, but he avenged that in his last fight by earning a majority decision.
  • Horn regained his WBA Oceania and WBO Oriental middleweight titles and will be fighting for the IBF Australasian and WBO Global junior middleweight titles.
  • Horn has shared 20 rounds with two of the best modern-day boxers in Manny Pacquiao and Terence Crawford. He was eventually finished by Crawford in the ninth round but managed to sway the judges to pick up his biggest win against Pacquiao – all priceless experience.

TIM TSZYU

  • Tim Tszyu stretched his perfect record to 15-0 in his last fight back in December of last year with a fourth round TKO over Jack Brubaker.
  • Tszyu will be defending his IBF Australasian and WBO Global light middleweight titles against Horn and is still only 25 years old.
  • Tszyu has been incredibly active, fighting eight times in the last two years, and is the son of Australian boxing legend, Kostya Tszyu.

THE PREDICTION

Horn is the biggest threat to Tszyu's unbeaten record to date. Tszyu has the speed and power to claim his biggest scalp and will back his cardio to threaten for the whole fight, especially as he requested this be a 12-round contest. However, Horn's wealth of experience with the likes of Manny Pacquiao and Terence Crawford will be crucial in managing the rounds and earning a decision.

Winner: Horn via Decision
