It’s a big night in the boxing ring tonight as Tim Tszyu clashes with Dwight Ritchie, with Tayla Harris of the AFLW stepping into the ring just beforehand.
The main event gets underway at approximately 8pm (AEST) on Wednesday, August 14, although the full undercard will begin at roughly 5:45pm (AEST).
It’s an all-Australian affair for the main fight, with Tszyu – son of boxing legend Kosta – tackling a national rival known as ‘the Cowboy’. The 24-year-old Tszyu is undefeated in 13 meetings, winning 10 of those by KO.
He faces his sternest test yet, however, against 27-year-old Ritchie, who is 18-1-0 since making his debut in 2009.
There’ll be a fair bit of attention paid to the first fight on the main card too, with AFL Women’s player Tayla Harris stepping into the ring against Nine Footy Show producer Renee Gartner.
