Tszyu vs Zerafa Date, Location and Broadcast

TV | Australia Main Event

Tim Tszyu will face long-time rival Michael Zerafa in a high-stakes all-Australian clash.  The winner could immediately face the victor of the unification bout between WBO super welterweight champion Brian Castano and WBC/WBA/IBF champion Jermell Charlo.

Tszyu vs Zerafa will take place on Wednesday 7th July at Newcastle Entertainment Centre, live on Main Event.

Tszyu said: “What my dad did, nobody in Australia has ever done or could possibly do, but I believe I can. It’s the second generation. It’s not second best, it’s the second coming.”

Tszyu vs Zerafa prediction: Former welterweight champion Jeff Horn, who has faced both men, likes Tszyu by stoppage.

“I’m pretty confident Tim Tszyu will get the victory in this one,” Horn told the Herald.

“He’s got a bit more skills and his confidence is skyrocketing at the moment. Zerafa, as confident as he sounds, has probably got a few doubts in his mind.

... “It’s hard to beat someone with the confidence that Tim has got, plus he’s got the skills as well. He’s doing very well at the moment.”

Asked if he thought Tszyu would win via knockout, Horn said: “I would predict Tim by stoppage. I don’t know when – it might take a few rounds to break Zerafa down – but I think he’ll get him.”

Bad blood: Tszyu and Zerafa don't like each other one bit.

“There’s been a lot of things said that I take personally,” Tszyu stated during a press conference held Thursday morning (local time) to formally announce the event. “I don’t like him. July 7, we get to go in the ring and punch each other in the face.”

Zerafa insists Tszyu is nothing special, suggesting Tim is popular because his father is a hall of famer. “He’s had the help with that last name. But credit to him, he’s done his job,” said Zerafa. “He’s beaten the names they’ve put in front of him. They know I can upset anybody. I’m world-class. I’ve done everything he has. Everyone he’s fought I’ve beaten."

“July 7, the talk stops.”

BoxRec ranking (as of May 6): Tszyu is rated No.2 in the division behind Charlo.
