Chilly CHAT FROM TSZYU
The sinister side of Tim Tszyu disclosed by itself in his previous two spiteful performances and was underlined this week in comments around his forthcoming bout with Dennis Hogan.
Answering my thoughts at Tuesday’s official announcement, Tszyu made his disdain for people that experience him in the ring ominously obvious.
“That’s my goal, to get their soul and their perception and almost everything they’ve at any time labored for,” reported Tszyu.
“I’m not letting it go the distance, that’s for certain. I’m coming for one particular issue and that’s to get almost everything away from him (Hogan).”
Tszyu v Hogan will be on Most important Party on Wednesday 31 March.
HOGAN’S CORNER Query
Irish-born Brisbanite Dennis Hogan must have turn out to be WBO Super Welterweight champion in 2019 when he outboxed Jaime Munguia in Mexico. Alternatively he was served an unpalatable MD reduction.
Afterwards that calendar year Hogan moved up to middleweight to unsuccessfully obstacle WBC champ Jermall Charlo, then parted means with coach Glenn Rushton.

In the meantime Hogan is doing the job with Stephen Edwards who is very best recognised as Jeff Horn’s wonder-doing the job cutman and the voice of rationale in his corner when factors had turned extremely unattractive versus Tszyu.
PULLING THE Cause ON FOTY
Ty ‘The Trigger’ Telford was one particular fifty percent of Australian boxing’s ‘Fight of the Year’ in 2019, versus Jack Brubaker, and previous calendar year his epic fight with Darragh Foley was well known in the discussion for that title.
Telford will struggle Toowoomba’s spectacular Steve Spark on the Tszyu v Hogan undercard, in a match-up that has all the ingredients for a different FOTY contender.
A commonly-sturdy No Restrict undercard will be declared soon.
JARVIS UNSURPRISED BY WARRINGTON Reduction

That was till Warrington vacated his belt, then endured a brutal stoppage reduction to Mexican Mauricio Lara in a bout broadcast on Fox Athletics on Sunday early morning.
Lara was as broad as 33/1 in betting marketplaces but the result arrived as little shock to Jarvis who instructed me right before the evening right before the struggle the Mexican would give Warrington hell.
Jarvis is set to return to the ring on a D&L Gatherings and Funds Battle Show co-marketing in Canberra in April.
