Tszyu vs Mendoza: Date, Start Time & Undercard Info
Tim Tszyu is all set to defend the WBO super-welterweight world title in the land down under, Australia, on the marked date of Sunday, October 15 at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre in Australia. No Limit Boxing has thrown their confirmation into the ring today, making it official.
Tszyu, at the prime age of 28, is gearing up to defend the WBO super-welterweight world title. It’s not just another title defense, though; it’s a historic first for Tszyu, following the organization’s decision to promote him to the status of a full champion. The timing is perfect, coming as soon as the announcer’s voice booms Jermell Charlo’s name in the ring for his eagerly anticipated bout with the formidable Canelo Alvarez on September 30
The plot thickens as speculation looms around whether the WBC will follow in WBO’s footsteps and strip Charlo of the title. If this unexpected jab lands, Mendoza’s status would rise, and the fight would turn into a world title unification bout.
It’s been a busy seven months for Tszyu, who’s been dancing in the ring with champions and contenders. His knockout list includes former WBC world champion Tony Harrison in Sydney in March and the world-rated Mexican warrior Carlos Ocampo on the Gold Coast in July. Tszyu’s fists have been nothing but fire and precision lately.
Meanwhile, Mendoza, coming from Albuquerque, New Mexico, has been making his own noise in the ring. Last November, he made a strong statement by blasting out the former unified champion Jeison Rosario. He then delivered a brutal knockout to the previously unbeaten Sebastian Fundora to seize the WBC interim-title at 154-pounds. At 29, Mendoza stands as Tszyu’s most formidable opponent to date, showing both his devastating power and remarkable composure as the underdog against the top-tier fighters.
