    He knew he was mugged big time but knew there was nothing he could really do about it. He seems like a cool cat.

    Probably came to terms with it remembering this is where they sent all the robbers and scoundrels.

    They are all shockingly corrupt but I think Queensland is probably the worst.

    I've really warmed to this path for Tim.

    Not only will he make better money at this stage of his career, those gradually harder fights will really help him grow as a fighter.

    Joel has proven whiskers, he is a little awkward and his swings hard to hurt. He arguably came pretty close to beating Dwight.

    I quite like Ritchie, I've seen him a couple of times live. Quick hands and busy with a good variety of punches. Sort of guy if you don't keep him under wraps he will just keeping banking rounds.
    He has a ranking aswell.

    Zerafa of course is the next level up and if they fought tomorrow I wouldn't hesitate to pick Michael.
    But assuming that fight is 8-10 months away Tszyu might show me something in his next two that could sway me.

    Horn dawg seems a bit out of reach at the moment. But maybe another punishing loss between then and now could knock him down a peg. If Tszyu could get through the other 3 in impressive fashion he likely goes up a few and the matchup seems more even then it does now.

    And if Timmy picked up a loss...so what. He is challenging himself and it happens. His Dad achieved more after brutally losing.
    Top Rank would likely drop him or put him at the back of the line after a loss but he could still keep at it down here if he wanted I'm sure.

    Great post. Pretty much agree with all of this.

    Looking forward to seeing how high Tim the Toolman can climb.

    * There are reports that the Tim Tszyu PPV is off.
    * Terence Crawford vs Amir Khan will be on Fox and Canelo vs Jacobs on PPV. Its disappointing Bilal Akkawy will not be on the PPV part.
    * Tim Tszyu has plans to fight next year in a mega bout with Jeff Horn at the new Bankwest Stadium. His father fought Hugo Pineda at the now defunct Parramatta Stadium.
    Jeff Horn

    They probably noticed Camo's ranking and decided Timmy not ready for someone ranked in top 100 yet.
    Back to the 300s.
