Nikita Tszyu is preparing for her debut in the professional ring!
Tszyu vs Stahl “On March 2, Nikita enters the ring with sinister intentions. He has been on the sidelines for a long time,” Jennings said at a press conference in Brisbane to officially announce the fight.
“Nikita is resuming his boxing career in order to build a name for himself. And it will be an exciting ride. Together with Tim, this is a great platform here at the Brisbane Convention Center to launch the next leg of Tszyu’s legacy in Australian boxing.”
Many knowledgeable people rated Nikita as a better amateur talent than Tim. Nikita says that his style is different from his older brother’s, but he’s just as effective.
“Some have referred to my brother as a surgeon,” Nikita explained. “They described me as a butcher. We do the same job but in a different way – I’m a little bit messier.”
Promoter George Rose of No Limit Boxing said at today’s press conference, “He’s different. I think the way he moves and the kind of person he is is very different from Tim… He will be a really exciting person to watch in 2022 and beyond.”
“He instilled dread in the welterweight class.” Many individuals are hesitant to enter the ring with Nikita Tszyu, which speaks much about him.
“Everyone is overjoyed to see Nikita back in the ring. He is also ready to raise the flag (name Tszyu).”
And what do you think, will Nikita be able to repeat, or even surpass the achievements of his father?
