In the early hours of Wednesday morning in the United States, halfway around the world, two boxers will meet in the ring with a pair of regional titles on the line in the Pacific. At the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney, Australia, Tim Tszyu (19-0-0, 15 KO) will take on Takeshi Inoue (17-1-1, 10 KO).
Son of a former WBC, IBF, and WBA World Super Lightweight titleholder, Kotsya “The Thunder from Down Under” Tszyu, “The Soul Taker” is the top super welterweight fighter in Australia and fourth-ranked in the world. He looks to further establish his resume in the hopes of world title contention like his father. An evening bout in Australia, his fight against Japan’s best, Inoue, is a strong next step.

What to know about Tszyu vs Inoue Main Card fight
Nearly three years ago, Inoue had a shot at the WBO World Super Welterweight title, challenging and undefeated Jaime Munguia in Houston, Texas in 2019. At that time, the Japanese orthodox boxer was undefeated himself, riding a 13-fight winning streak. It was a twelve-round battle where Inoue represented his nation well, but in the end, saw Munguia get his hand raised with a victory by unanimous decision.
Inoue went to work to pick up momentum for another run, and dismissed his next four opponents, acquiring the WBO Asia Pacific Super Welterweight Title in the meantime. In early 2020, Inoue successfully defended his new belt against Cheng Su in Japan, forcing a corner retirement from his foe. At 41 years old, one has to wonder how much he has left in the tank to make another push. Wednesday night’s fight will provide a good metric.
Champion blood runs through Tszyu, and just two weeks after turning 27 years old, is in his prime. Undefeated to this point in his young career, Tszyu is starting to come on strong with five consecutive victories by TKO dating back to December 2019. Wednesday night’s bout will be the third of 2021 for “The Soul Taker”, and he’s looking to finish with a bang.
“One thing I know is I’m coming for his head and body,” Tszyu said at the weigh-in per Fox Sports Australia, speaking of Inoue. “I hope he’s had a great holiday here. The holiday ends tomorrow.”
