Australian former titlist Jeff Horn (22-2, 13 KO's) — the then unknown school teacher/fighter who dethroned Filipino icon Manny Pacquiao back in 2017 and then lost to unbeaten welterweight star Terence Crawford — will have his hands full this April when he battles young, undefeated, 154-pounder rising star Tim Tszyu (15-0, 11 KO's), son of exciting Russian former undisputed world champion Kostya Tszyu 🔥🔥

The exact date and venue for the intriguing clash are yet to be announced, as well as if the clash will be a 10 or 12 rounder. 🧐 Tszyu, 25, wants 12 chapters, hoping that the 31-year-old "Hornet" would accept. 🥊

The Horn vs Tszyu rumble is likely to become one of the most anticipated fights for Australia's boxing year, nobody knowing for sure who'd be the betting favorite as both men bring skills to the game: Horn, his experience as relentless brawler in world title battles, Tszyu his hard-swinging power as an up-and-coming, fresher fighter with much potential and a great last name. 👍👍

Plus, the winner positions himself good in the world rankings with a possible shot at a super welterweight world title. Who might that be..?? 🔥🔥
