Former world heavyweight champion Denis Lebedev commented on Tim Tszyu’s victory over Dennis Hogan.
Recall that Tszyu Jr. managed to stop Hogan ahead of schedule in the fifth round, forcing his corner to throw out the towel.
“I am very glad that Konstantin Borisovich’s son Tszyu won the victory. The manner of the fight was like a blueprint. In a conversation with Kostya, he said:“ Kostya, if they want to count Timofey in battle, they will do it according to your battles. ”He looks so much like his father , he also has legs and arms, the same defensive movements. I was delighted by the fact that, living in Australia, in Timofey’s corner, prompts sounded in Russian, “Lebedev told RIA Novosti.
“The fight of the younger Tszyu in Russia would be a gift for all boxing fans. The fighting style is aggressive, and this is always liked by our and not only fans. Everyone remembers Kostya’s fights, everyone will go to Timofey as Kostya, even though Timofey is another person. Not I think that comparison with his father hinders him in his career, it is still not the worst comparison. One should be proud of such a father. “
The victory over Hogan for 26-year-old Tszyu became the 18th in the pro ring. Tim’s debut in pro boxing took place in 2016, and since then, the fighter has gone unbeaten, winning several regional Australian titles.
