Me too.

The thing that gets me is the why.
If it was a case of Jeff just not wanting to stay local and wanting big international fights, you'd think it would be easy to just announce that to the public, Tell Tim he needs to do more than Brubaker, Ritchie, Camilleri and co. That would be perfectly acceptable. But I haven't heard Jeff mention anyone else's name.

Maybe he just isn't up for it after the few battles he's been through recently
Horn was on the cusp of a title fight against Brant when he fought Zerafa the first time.

Getting the fight required him to beat Zerafa and Brant to retain his title against Murata. Neither played out the way they were supposed to.

It was announced today that Horn-Tszyu is signed and will take place on April 22nd at a yet to be determined location. The fight will be at 154 pounds and over 10 rounds.

Big domestic fight this.

Horn seems quite excited the fight will be over 10 rounds and not 12. Not sure if it is just gamesmanship on his part? Or perhaps he is trying to minimize the wear and tear on those fragile eyes of his?

after all of horn's talk on tszyu, i hope tim knocks him clean out, to be honest.

and why does horn want 10 rounds?

sounds like jeff has stamina problems.

and why would he want a rematch, if he's so confident.

sounds like jeff is the one making all the excuses.

tszyu has basically said i dont care about the money, i just want to fight him.

i'm picking tszyu.
