"The other bloke [Charlo], you know what happened. His hand started hurting and he did his little thing. Found that money fight and got the opportunity, which every fighter would take of course". "But me and Mendoza are the two next pitbulls in the division.

Tszyu further said: I've got the WBO, he's got the WBC. We're both coming off two big, big wins. We're both on that incline. There's no decline from neither side so it's a tremendous challenge and I look forward to taking it with both hands".

"I'm expecting a war, He has power in both hands and has shown he thrives off being that underdog, so I doubt coming to Australia will bother him. But don't expect a single person to be cheering for him".
