The editor-in-chief of The Ring, Doug Fischer, was in solidarity with the prospect of the first middleweight (up to 69.9 kg) Tim Tszyu, who after defeating Dennis Hogan announced that he was not going to rush into the championship fight.
“Tim shouldn’t fight for the title this year, but if he doesn’t slow down, he will have real chances in a year or two. And now I would not be disappointed by his fights with Brandon Adams or Charles Conwell.
Remember, Tim started late, with only 18 fights. Plus, he didn’t have a big “amateur” career like his father. Last year’s meeting with Jeff Horn was just the first big challenge, ”Fischer wrote in a weekly column.
