Tim Tszyu wins in the fourth round after Jeff Fenech throws in the towel for Jack Brubaker

Tim Tszyu

Tim Tszyu has done what he said he was going to do.

He vowed to stop Jack Brubaker at the International Convention Centre in Sydney and he did just that.

Jeff Fenech was forced to throw in the towel for Brubaker in the fourth round after Tszyu completely dismantled him throughout the fight.

Fenech did the right thing in stopping the fight, knowing that any more punishment from Tszyu was only going to hurt any of Brubaker’s future aspirations.

Tszyu found his range early with the jab and landed a number of right hands that kept Brubaker wary of opening up. The speed, accuracy, and timing of Tszyu was too much for Brubaker, showing that Tszyu is simply in another class.

The win continues Tszyu’s rise to worldwide attention, following in the footsteps of his father Kostya, who held a number of world titles.

It also brings Tszyu’s professional record to 15-0 and could potentially set up a fight with the winner of the rematch between Jeff Horn and Michael Zerafa.
