Boxing: Tim Tszyu knocks out Bowyn Morgan in first round in Sydney

In the end, it was simply too easy for Tim Tszyu.

Two minutes was all it took for Tszyu to completely demolish New Zealand’s Bowyn Morgan at Bankwest Stadium in Sydney.

Morgan had only been defeated once in his 22 fight career and was riding a 14 fight winning streak, but Tszyu proved there are levels to boxing and that he is a class above.

An uppercut from Tszyu followed by a flurry of punches combined to put Morgan on his backside in the very opening stages of the first round.

The Kiwi managed to get back to his feet but it was all over from there. Tszyu pounced on the opportunity to finish the fight, landing a right hand and scoring a first-round KO victory.

The 26-year-old put on arguably the perfect performance as he left the ring without being hit.

Tszyu defended his IBF Australasian and WBO Global super welterweight titles as he improved his undefeated professional record to 17-0 with the win.

The win caps of an incredible three-fight stretch for Tszyu who has now finished his last three opponents including Jack Brubaker and Jeff Horn.

World titles are in the sights of the young Aussie who made his intentions clear in his interview in the ring post-fight.

“Now you know what’s next; the world title here in Sydney. In Australia,” Tszyu said post-fight.

“Let’s do it 10 times the size of this. Australia deserves this. This is a fight for history.”
