Jeff Horn takes on undefeated Tim Tszyu for the WBO Global light-middleweight belt and the IBF Australasian title at Queensland Country Bank Stadium in Townsville on Wednesday night. 

Will Horn's experience win the day? Or can Tsyzu follow in the footsteps of his father and continue on his path to stardom?

Jeff Horn Form


Horn carries the big fight experience having already fought 23 times in his career. The Queenslander has lost just twice in that time and was WBO Welterweight champion before losing to Terence Crawford, the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world, in June 2018.

Horn's only other loss came at the hands of fellow Aussie Michael Zerafa when he was stopped almost a year ago, but The Hornet has since avenged that defeat with a point decision in December. 

This will be Horn's first fight since, but he has a wealth of experience of the big occasion despite still only being 32 years old. His past clashes with Gary Corcoran, Manny Pacquiao and Crawford, as well as his first round win over Anthony Mundine, will stand him in good stead for the challenge posed by Tszyu.

Tim Tszyu Form


The son of adopted Australian Kostya, Tsyzu has made the perfect start to his career with a 15-0 record to become IBF Australasian and WBO Global light-middleweight champion at the age of 24.

He won both belts with a unanimous decision victory over Dwight Ritchie a year ago, and successfully defended them when stopping Jack Brubaker in the fourth round in December, and many believe he is destined for worldwide success in the ring.

Sydneysider Tsyzu has won 11 of his 15 fights by either KO, TKO or retirement, with only four going the distance. He has the pace and speed to maintain his unbeaten record, but how will he cope against the experience and know-how of Horn?
