Tim Tszyu Bio

Son of boxing legend Kostya Tszyu, undefeated power puncher Tim Tszyu is a chip off the old block, terrorizing the super welterweight division as he marches toward the top of the 154-pound class.

Running Toward Destiny

Tim Tszyu was two months old when his father, Kostya, stopped Jake Rodriguez in the sixth round to become an IBF 140-pound champion.

A Russian-born Australian, Kostya earned the nickname, “The Thunder From Down Under” for his skills as a boxer-puncher, retiring in 2005 with a mark of 31-2 (25 KOs) that included being an undisputed lineal championship. 

A six-year-old Tim Tszyu became aware of his patriarch's status, which included an International Hall Of Fame induction in 2011. At eight, Tim was drawn into a competition with Kostya comprising a regular footrace the father finally lost when his son was 15.

“I remember when I was in third grade, dad would wake me up at 5:30 every morning to go for a run,” said Tim Tszyu, whose early years were spent developing coordination, discipline and strength through gymnastics. “Then we’d come back after school to do boxing training. It was just a part of us. I was running four, five miles—as an eight-year-old.”

Tszyu went 33-1 as an amateur, this, despite suffering a pair of setbacks in 2011, a decision loss to Australian Olympian Daniel Lewis and a broken wrist. Tszyu overcame both, returning to action in 2013 and winning an Australian National Championship in April 2014.

Trained by his uncle, Igor Goloubev, Tszyu debuted professionally in December 2016 with a six-round unanimous decision over Zorran Cassidy. Tszyu went 6-0 (5 KOs) in 2017. Tszyu stopped all four opponents in 2018 and in 2019 won a pair of 10-round unanimous decisions, over Joel Camilleri (May) and Dwight Ritchie (August) in between second- and fourth-round TKOs of  Denton Vassell (February) and Jack Brubaker (December) as Tszyu rose to 15-0 (11 KOs).

Tszyu vs. Gausha: March 26, 2022 (PBC on SHOWTIME)

Coming To America

Tszyu scored two knockdowns each during eighth- and first-round knockouts of former champion Jeff Horn and Bowyn Morgan in 2020, the former in August and the latter in December. 

Tszyu continued his run in 2021, his fifth- and third-round TKOs of Dennis Hogan (March) and Steve Spark (July) preceding a shutout unanimous decision over title challenger Takeshi Inoue (November) of Japan. 

“We always believe he will be a world champion,” said Goloubev of Tszyu, who overcame a nasty second-round cut over his left eye to obliterate Hogan with a vicious uppercut.  “Especially with the background of Kostya. The fans are expecting this.”

In March 2022, Tszyu made an impressive U.S. debut, rising from a first-round knockdown to U.S. Olympian Terrell,  winning a 12-round unanimous decision at The Armory in Minneapolis, Minnesota on SHOWTIME. 

Tszyu (21-0, 15 KOs) won 114-113, 115-112 and 116-111.

“It was a simple flash knockdown. It was perfect timing. He’s a former Olympian. He’s got great credentials,” said Tszyu, who was cut on his left hairline from a first-round clash of heads. “That’s a great lesson for myself. I got back up and I dug deep. I was just enjoying myself. I felt in control the whole time. I kept the pressure on. I wasn’t going to back down.”
