Boxing: Aussie Tim Tszyu's violent knockout of Kiwi Bowyn Morgan could earn youngster world title fight

Australian Tim Tszyu's demolition of Kiwi Bowyn Morgan has the super welterweight in world title contention.

The 26-year-old dismantled Morgan inside three minutes, sending him to the canvas with a vicious left uppercut, then ending the fight with a thunderous straight right seconds later at Sydney's Bankwest Stadium.

The quickest finish of Tszyu's career is likely to raise a few eyebrows beyond Australian shores, in a division that houses the likes of Canelo Alvarez, Callum Smith and Billy Joe Saunders.

While delighted to have scored a highlight-reel knockout, Tszyu says he was just getting started when the big punches came, before demanding a big overseas name next.

"Bowyn Morgan is a tough competitor, I just didn't give him the opportunity," he says.

"You guys know what's next - it's a world title here in Australia. In Sydney.

"Let's do 10-times the size of this. This is part of history."

Tszyu is likely to fight for the vacant WBO title, most likely against Argentina's Brian Castano, in early 2021, with the WBO expected to strip current champion Patrick Teixeira within days, as he is stuck in Brazil because of the COVID-19 pandemic and unable to defend the belt.
