Looking at the weekend schedule and see a few unfamiliar names fighting on Saturday (unfamiliar to me)

Andrew Maloney in with a solid fighter in Luis Conception.
Looking at Moloneys record it isn't a padded one with only 3 fighters with losing records at the start of his career and matched relatively tough on the way up, he's ranked in the top 15 with all 4 bodies and no4 with the WBC

Then noticed he has a twin brother who has a similar record and is lined up for this years WBSS. It wasn't a name I recognised when the line up went out but the lad is highly ranked by 3 of the governing bodies.

Is there a lot of hype about these lads over there? They don't just look like manufactured unbeaten records.

Also on the build is Tim (son of Kostya) Tszyu, his record is only 10 fights old but doesn't look as solid
Is he the next Kostya or just another Conner Benn?

The Moloneys have carried all before them so far. However, both will soon dive into much deeper water and that will tell us a lot more about them.

Tim Tszyu is improving, but unlike his famous father only had a short amateur career. So he is virtually learning on the job. Need to be patient there.

'Straya, cunt.
I've got to say, out of the Bella brothers, The Maloney twins and the pair of Dibb and Thomlenson, I'd have put the Maloney twins at the bottom of the list of Aussies going on to the big stage. Glad I was wrong.

Tim's previous opponent took a dive. Hard to see it any other way.

The referee could have let last night's fight go longer. But it was only going to end one way.

Tim looked sharp. But he was obviously classes above his opponent.

Tszyu looks pretty good. I think he could be a bit more creative offensively but he has a sharp jab and tidy enough footwork.

He looks like he has an unwavering self belief and is going about things very purposefully. We won't know much more about him until he is asked some serious questions by a better level of opponent.
