Tim Tszyu will headline the first Sydney stadium fight since 2006 as he tries to push his case for a world title shot.
The undefeated Tszyu will take on New Zealand fighter Bowyn Morgan at Bankwest Stadium on December 16.
Dubbed ‘The Sydney Supershow’, Tszyu returns to the ring for the first time since his emphatic TKO win over Jeff Horn in Townsville in August, which took his record to 16-0, 12 KOs.
The card also features ex-NRL star Paul Gallen against UFC legend Kiwi Mark Hunt.
Gallen’s last fight was a year ago in Melbourne against former AFL player Barry Hall, which ended in a draw, and he will battle with Hunt over six rounds.
It is the first Sydney stadium fight since Anthony Mundine first fought Danny Green back in 2006 while Tsyzu’s father Kostya claimed the IBF world super lightweight title at Parramatta Stadium against Hugo Pineda back in 1996.
Ranked in the top eight at junior middleweight in all boxing organisations and No.2 in the WBO, Tszyu wants to challenge for a world title against champions American Jermell Charlo and Brazilian Patrick Teixeira.
Tszyu said a title fight with WBO No.1 Teixeira was in the works but they couldn’t get the deal done. Floyd vs Paul live stream
