Welcome to fight night
Good evening fight fans.
The Herald is coming to you ringside at Bankwest Stadium for the first Sydney Stadium event since 2006. The main event is Tim Tszyu, the face of Australian boxing, against New Zealand fighter Bowyn Morgan.
Tszyu is putting his International Boxing Federation Australasian super-welter and World Boxing Organisation global super-welter titles on the line, but there is a much bigger prize at stake. If victorious, Tszyu’s next fight could be for a world title.
The WBO announced that if current champion Patrick Teixeira can’t arrange a fight with Brian Castano by January 6 – a bout which appears unlikely given coronavirus travel constraints – Tszyu could fight Castano for the belt in early 2021. There is every chance that bout could be held on Australian soil.
However, Tszyu must get past Morgan. There is also plenty of interest in the fight that precedes it; Paul Gallen up against Mark Hunt. It has been a heated lead-up to this fight, but the time to talk is over.
