Three fights left on the undercard

That continues now with Joel Camilleri (20-6-1) against Koen Mazoudier (8-2-0) at super welterweight. Big experience gap here, Camilleri has been in with Tszyu before and should be winning this if he wants to try and get his career moving in the right direction again.

The most pressing question is: When does it start?

Boxing isn’t exactly noted for being punctual but the main event is slated to start at 9:30pm Sydney time, so you do the maths if you are tuning in from elsewhere. There will be intros and formalities and very likely a questionable attempt at the anthems and away we go. The good news is Inoue doesn’t tend to muck around so there should be action from the opening bell.

Good evening fight fans

Welcome to our rolling coverage as Tim Tszyu takes on Japan’s Takeshi Inoue from Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney. We are at super welterweight this evening, both men made weight without issues and this is by far the biggest test of Tszyu’s career as he chases a world title shot against the WBO champ Brian Castano in his next outing.

Tszyu the heavy favourite against the 17-1-1 Inoue but I’m not quite as bullish. I think he will win but this really is a decent step up in class from guys like Steve Spark and Bowyn Morgan. Even Dennis Hogan was past his best when he got mugged by Tszyu. I think we might end up with a decision for the local man but I’d be less surprised than most if there is an upset.
