Tim Tszyu eager to see younger brother make his own name in pro ranks


If boxing fans think Tim Tszyu is deadly, like his famous father Kostya, look out for the family’s third coming.

After a five-year hiatus to complete a university degree, Nikita Tszyu returns to the ring for his eagerly anticipated professional debut against unbeaten countryman Aaron Stahl at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on March 2.

And his big brother can’t wait.

While Tim is regarded as a “surgeon” in the ring, Nikita, a qualified architect, has been branded a “butcher”.

“I am so pumped,” Tim Tszyu said after 24-year-old Nikita was unveiled among the headline acts at No Limit Boxing’s 2022 launch in Sydney.

“I love this kid to death and for him to finally realise what he wants to do.

“There’s going to be things like that involved and there’s gonna be bodies on the floor, asleep, with this guy.”

A four-time former national amateur champion, Nikita is in the same weight class as Tim — the mandated WBO light middleweight challenger to Brian Castano after winning his first 20 professional fights.
