Tim Tszyu’s next opponent has been revealed with Japan’s Takeshi Inoue taking up the fight that could ultimately cost the Australian a shot at the world title.
Tszyu has been mandated to fight for the WBO super welterweight world title, but will put it all on the line to take on Inoue on November 17 at a venue still to be decided.
World No.7 Inoue — who is 17-1-1 with 10 wins by knockout — is confident he can make Tszyu regret his decision to step back in the ring this year instead of waiting until 2022 for a shot at titleholder Brian Castano, or Jermell Charlo.
