“(I want a entire world title combat) subsequent. That’s it. I’m performed with Australia. I want the Mexicans, the Us citizens, the top rated-degree boys. I’m getting far more experienced. I just turned 26, I have not even reached my peak, I’ve bought yet another 3 or four years right before I access my peak,” Tszyu claimed soon after demolishing Morgan.

Tszyu’s manager Glen Jennings hopes to maintain the combat amongst his charge and Teixeira or Castano in Australia.

“There’s a lot of desire around the world in what we’re performing in Australia,” Jennings claimed last yr. “This younger fella has damaged a file he’s the only fighter in the entire world who has had two big stadium fights (in 2020). The entire world is looking at. The entire world appreciates that Tim Tszyu is all set for the entire world phase.”

Meantime, McGregor returns to the Octagon at UFC 257 this Sunday in a rematch against Dustin Poirier that will very likely set up a title shot of his own in the light-weight division.
