Selected from Australian boxing team, Tim Sziu is returning for his second stadium fight of the year when he faces the dangerous New Zealand New Zealand’s Boyne Morgan Western Sydney Stadium on Wednesday night.
On the undercard, MMA legend Mark Hunt will meet NRL player-obvious pundit Paul Galen.
This Sydney Superfight shows that the recent revival of Australian boxing is well underway, with a packed undercard full of talent (and a splash of innovation value) for the end of the year with a bang. Is set.
Here’s what you need to know before the big fight of the year.
What’s on the line?
Siju and Morgan are competing for the WBO Global and IBF Australian Super Welterweight titles.
And in the big news for the USC (and Kiwi for that matter), the WBO announced on Monday that the fight would be taken to a place where it could be removed from the world headlines.
If Siju wins, he will fight for the World Junior Middleweight title with either belt holder Patrick Teixeira from Brazil or Argentina’s number one challenger Brian Castro.
Tim Shizuo, like his dad Costa before him, has become the face of Australian boxing, the standard of the game.
After a string of impressive victories against domestic opposition, Tsuyu is ranked second in the WBO Junior Middleweight rankings and fourth on the IBF’s list.
Shizu’s disastrous victory over Jeff Horn in August reduced his position to the top of the Australian boxing arena, and the only way forward is to lean towards the World Championships.
Who is Boin Morgan?
A former Commonwealth Games competitor who reached the welterweight quarterfinals in Glasgow in 2014 and holds the WBW welterweight belt to boot, Morgan made his debut in the small town of Rananga on the west coast of New Zealand’s South Island. .
The 31-year-old Kiwi, who has a professional record of 21 wins – 11 knockouts – and eighty-one Chris George’s comeback defeat in 2016, led the IBF to COVID-19. Pan was for the shot at Pacific’s welterweight title. Intervened.
As a result, he did not fight for more than a year and turned down the fight against Shizuo last year.
“I’m a different kind of fighter right now,” Syzney told the Sydney Morning Herald.
Now, he’s looking for a disturbing “life-changer” against the loud Tassiu – but the barriers against him are overwhelming.
Shizu should win easily, no?
In all likelihood, yes.
For a start, Morgan never fought an opponent of Ciju’s caliber – nor did he ever fight in a big stadium.
He fights out of a radical stance and is very left-handed dominant, succeeding against his previous opponents with a solid jaw and a large, left-handed body, but he has to be much sharper and faster. Will be needed if he is injured
However, he will have to work inside to create life-threatening problems – Morgan said his opponent had “the biggest weakness” – because he was 14 inches tall.
Morgan said, however, that with this lesser style of boxing, he is likely to have to knock Shizuo back with a win at West Sydney Stadium.
An upset win will restart a match.
Why is Paul Galen fighting Mark Hunt?
Billed with skepticism as a co-headline program, former NRL hard man Glenn will take the MMA’s great story Hunt immediately before the title act.
Some promotional materials call it a contest between two big-mouthed big men, which seems like a fair description, as there is no embarrassment in promoting a six-way heavyweight competition.
Hunt, 46, called 39-year-old Glenn a “grump” and insisted he would throw out the former Sharks star.
Galen, meanwhile, says the pressure is on all “Super Samoans,” who have been without a win in almost four years, adding that a defeat would further undermine the legacy of a bigger hit.
Hunt has won just two professional boxing matches in his extensive combat career – a draw and a defeat – although both took place more than 20 years ago.
Since then, Hunt has won several Super Heavyweight Kickboxing titles (30-13) and competed in MMA for 14 years, including the UFC, ending with a 13-14-1 record, no competition. Happened.
Galen, who has won nine of his 10 professional fights and drawn one, defeated John Hopepoit, Jr. Paolo and Randall Raymont but managed just one draw in his last match against former AFL star Barry Hall.
