Tim Tszyu stops Brubaker

Tim Tszyu moved to 15-0 last night with a fourth-round stoppage over Jack Brubaker. Brubaker was game early on, but Tszyu had tamed him early, and the bout was one-sided after that.

Tszyu had Brubaker in trouble twice in the second round, once from a body shot and once from an uppercut and he went to work in the third round, landing vicious right hands and left rips that were set up from a pawing jab. The end came early in the fourth when Brubaker’s chief second Jeff Fenech threw in the towel, with Tszyu dishing out punishment with both hands.

Where does Tszyu go from here? Well, Brubaker was a step backwards in competition from Dwight Ritchie and Joel Camilleri, so this fight proved very little. It is clear that Tszyu is emerging as a contender, and he will definitely need to step up his competition. Domestic contests with Michael Zerafa, Jeff Horn or Daniel Lewis are mouth-watering, but anyone below those levels would be a waste of time.

On the undercard, David Light dropped Trent Broaqdhurst four times in three rounds, forcing the referee to stop the contest. Bruno Tarimo outpointed Nathaniel May over ten rounds in the best fight of the night, and Luke Boyd took Masing Waramara out in the first round.
