Nikita Tszyu takes on Dylan Biggs in a fight that’s set to light up the Newcastle Entertainment Centre on Wednesday.
We’re talking about the most talked-about domestic scrap since Tim Tszyu and Jeff Horn squared off. Biggs, the reigning champ of the Australian super welterweight division, will throw down with the younger Tszyu sibling.
Get ready for the big night: Nikita Tszyu vs Dylan Biggs, happening on Wednesday, 22nd November at 7 PM AEDT. You can catch all the action live with Main Event on Kayo Sports.
Biggs, 21, may be younger but he’s got the edge in experience. Tszyu? He’s got that family name and a punch that turns heads and draws crowds.
No Limit, the promoter, stirred the pot by suggesting Biggs enter the ring before Tszyu. That’s against boxing tradition where the champ walks last, and Biggs isn’t too pleased about it.
Shawn Porter, former world champ, chimes in on news.com.au, “Nikita should be entering first, not the champ. Dylan’s the Australian super welterweight king and that’s got to be respected. It’s all part of the game, though – getting people talking and putting your opponent off their game. Smart moves all around, if you ask me.”
Porter’s expecting an explosive showdown. “This is going to be an absolute cracker of a fight. It’s underrated, in my opinion,” he adds.
