This guy must be like an octopus. Will look up some of his fights and take a look.
Actually the below video says he's 6'7"/201cm. That's right around the height of Deontay Wilder.
He also claims he could make 147lbs if he wanted!!! :yikes

He's going to be over 20cm taller than Lewis who's listed at 5'10"/178cm who knows what kind of reach the dude has.

You would think if he can learn to fight tall, develop a stiff jab he'd be a huge problem at that weight.




Out of all his opponents to date with listed height this is him next to the tallest. 6'2" / 188cm tall Jamontay Clark






On the flip side, he fought a bloke who is only 5'4" / 163cm tall. That must have been a sight to see

Heard a rumour Lucas Browne might face Tyson's Fury's last opponent, Otto Wallin, 20-1, next up.

Dean Lonergan and Matt Rose. Can they get Horn-Tszyu made? Do they both want to get it made?

Listening to the podcast found on the shortcut to page below, it sounds like Horn and Tszyu both want the fight.

Horn comments on his reasoning for wanting a 10 round fight, though I wonder if it is the real reason.

I am wondering if they are concerned, or at least looking to help preserve Horn's suspect eyes? So far they haven't cost him a win. But he seems to be lining for stitches after every fight.

No official announcement as yet on Horn-Tszyu.

But it is believed to have been made and to be at 154 pound limit, and likely to be April 22nd (Wednesday) or less likely April 18th (Saturday).

Horn-Tszyu press conference is scheduled for Wednesday in Sydney.

I guess the questions of money split, number of rounds and whether there will be a rematch clause will all be answered then?

Yes, ten rounds poses less chance of a fight stopping cut, or two, for Horn.

Joseph Parker's next opponent has been named as 39 year old, 13-2, American Shawndell Winters. Fight will be on the Garcia-Vargas undercard, February 29th, in Texas.

Somewhat underwhelming compared to some of the names mentioned as possible opponents.

Wednesday April 22nd firming as the date for Horn-Tszyu. I guess all will be revealed in Sydney today.

I hope the reveal in Sydney and the fight is in Sydney!
From what I have read they won't announce the venue straight away. They will probably spend some time weighing up the various options.

Can't see a time for this press conference. Will have a search around.
