I personally have never regarded Kostya Tszyu as Australian. Imo if you are born in Russia to Russian parents and are brought up in Russian until approx age 20 then even if you then decide to live in another country and become naturalised you are still Russian imo. Does anyone here seriously regard Tszyu as more Australian than Russian and if so can they please explain why ?

Always a tricky question that one mate.

Many, perhaps most, of our greatest ring achievers were born elsewhere, as you probably know.

The craziest of all was probably that Joe Bugner, as great a fighter as he was, and terrific bloke that he is, was an 'Australian' fighter.

Good to see Kats get some early votes. Hardly surprising a certain someone else didn't rate a mention.
