“WBO Super Welterweight champ Patrick Teixeira has currently been granted entry to the US for his defence from Brian Castano on February 13 in California.”
The WBO lately announced that if a battle among Teixeira and Castano did not eventuate by January 6, then Tszyu, who defeat New Zealand’s Bowyn Morgan on December 16, would make a title battle from Castano, which would relegate Teixeria to No.one contender.
COVID-19 limitations have prevented Teixeria from leaving Brazil, which had positioned the super battle with Castano in question.
Teixeira was scheduled to battle the Argentine on a Golden Boy card in late April but the pandemic brought about the bout to be cancelled.
Boxing professionals predicted Teixeira would be stripped of his belt within just times because of to the unlikelihood of him becoming granted permission to travel in time for his deadline, but the battle will now go ahead.
Mounting Australian boxing sensation Tszyu will now have to wait around to see who wins out of Teixeria and Castano, with a battle with another neighborhood contender probably his future shift in the meantime.
It is probably Tszyu’s future bout will be a tune-up battle to steer clear of any chance of costing him a title shot from Teixeira or Castano.
Tszyu mentioned soon after his victory above Morgan that a entire world title shot was not much absent.
“Do you guys know what is future? That’s the entire world title, in this article, in Sydney, Australia,” Tszyu mentioned.
“Let’s make it ten situations the sizing of this. Australia warrants it.”
