Strap yourselves in, pay-per-view boxing is coming to Kayo, and the first fight is an all-Aussie affair, featuring Brisbane battler Jeff Horn touching gloves with Tim Tszyu – son of Aussie boxing great Kostya Tszyu.
Originally slotted to be fought in April, the fight will finally have its time under the lights, with the bout taking place today (Wednesday, August 26) in Townsville, Queensland, in front of a crowd of 16,000.
32-year-old Horn (20-2-1) and 25-year-old Tszyu (15-0-0) fight for the IBF Australasian super welterweight and WBO Global super welterweight belts, both of which are currently held by Tszyu, as well as the allure of being the face of Australian boxing. So, how can you watch the fight? Find out below.
