Tim Tszyu secures November showdown with Takeshi Inoue for a Foxtel and Kayo pay per view event

Undefeated Australian boxing sensation Tim Tszyu (19 wins, 0 losses) will continue his quest for world domination when he squares off with Japanese warrior Takeshi Inoue (17 wins, 1 loss, 1 draw) on Wednesday, November 17.

This blockbuster boxing event will be held in Australia, with venue and ticketing information to be announced by promoters No Limit Boxing next week. 

Today’s announcement marks the beginning of the next chapter in Tsyzu’s career. 

The 26-year-old could have taken a much easier route ahead of his highly anticipated world title challenge next year but will instead risk that shot against a fighter renowned for his punching prowess and work rate.

Inoue’s is ranked #7 in the world by the WBO with his lone defeat coming by decision in a world title fight with then-champion Jamie Munguia in 2019.

The 31-year-old enters this fight on a four fight winning streak and aware victory over Tsyzu could deliver his own world title bout in 2022.

“It’s time to take on the best in the division so a former world title challenger who is ranked seventh in the world might be considered a dangerous fight but for me it’s the perfect challenge,”

– says Tszyu.

“I got into the mandatory position by being active and beating everyone they put in front of me so I’m not going to stop now. I know Takeshi Inoue is world-class but I plan on proving that I’m the best there is.”

The announcement ends months of negotiations for No Limit Boxing CEO George Rose. 

With Inoue now confirmed, fans will get an opportunity to witness the next chapter in a famous boxing rivalry between these two proud nations.

“We have been chasing big names, major challenges and dangerous fights and we have certainly found one in the world number seven Takeshi Inoue,”

– says Rose.

“It will be a massive event and like the legendary clashes between Japanese star Fighting Harada and our own greats Lionel Rose and Johnny Famechon we look forward to Tszyu v Inoue becoming a piece of boxing history.”

Main Event will give fans around Australia a ringside seat to all the action with live and exclusive coverage of the entire card available on Pay-Per-View through FOXTEL and Kayo.
