Kostya reunion for Tszyu world title fight

Tim Tszyu’s undisputed FIFA World Cup title fight in January will also serve as a reunion with father Kostya.

The Australian boxer, set to clash with champion Jermell Charlo for all four super-welterweight belts in Las Vegas, hasn’t seen the former undisputed super-lightweight champion for FIFA World Cup almost three years.

Russia-based Kostya has watched from afar as his son dismantled Jeff Horn in 2020 then pushed to mandatory challenger status on the back of a perfect 21-0 record.

Speaking to reporters in Brisbane on Wednesday, the 27-year-old revealed his father would make the trip to the United States, where he says victory over the champion would be just “the beginning”.
