Tim Tszyu battered Takeshi Inoue in a a single-sided demonstration that he is completely ready for the earth title scene on Wednesday in Australia.
Tszyu knocked Inoue down for the only time in the 12th round but was pressured to settle for a at ease unanimous final decision victory.
The Australian, whose father Kostya Tszyu was a pound-for-pound excellent who fought Ricky Hatton, is the obligatory challenger to WBO super-welterweight winner Brian Castano.
Tszyu’s shot at a entire world title could occur soon right after he prolonged his unbeaten record to 20-.
Tszyu pulverised Inoue to the human body but his run of five consecutive stoppages was introduced to a halt simply by his opponent’s toughness.
Inoue partly misplaced his footing in the final spherical when he at last touched the canvas.
“The guy’s crafted like a brick wall,” Tszyu stated. “I really don’t imagine any heavyweights can fall him. I’m guaranteed he’s going to be sore tomorrow.
“I read him squeal, his facial area is battered and seem at his human body. He is so tricky.”
