Tim Tszyu-Tony Harrison Meet Saturday For Vacant WBO Title
Tim Tszyu and Tony Harrison collide this coming weekend for the interim WBO super welterweight title on Showtime.
Tim Tszyu and Tony Harrison collide this Saturday night for the interim WBO 154-pound title live on Showtime.
The event takes place from the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney, Australia under the Premier Boxing Champions banner.
Tszyu had originally been scheduled to face Charlo in a January clash before Charlo was forced to withdraw due to injury. Harrison, who arrived in Australia this week, has his own history with Charlo, having won his world title by defeating Charlo in 2018, before dropping their rematch.
Now, the winner on March 11 will put themselves in prime position to not only face Charlo, but to become an undisputed world champion. The event is promoted by No Limit Boxing and The Rose Brothers, in association with TGB Promotions.
“Tim Tszyu and Tony Harrison have both sought out the biggest challenges in the stacked 154-pound division and that continues on March 11 live on Showtime from Australia,” said Tom Brown, President of TGB Promotions. “Wildly popular in his home country, Tszyu will have the home crowd edge, but this is precisely the kind of challenge that brings out the best in a fighter like Harrison.
“The 154-pound division has delivered classic fight, after classic fight, and March 11 certainly shapes up to be the next chapter in that story.”
