ProBox TV’s Hall of Fame talent analyzes another Tim Tszyu break-out performance: ‘He’s ready for Charlo

Tim Bradley Jr., Paulie Malignaggi, and Chris Algieri analyzed Tim Tszyu’s performance against Brian Mendoza on a ProBox TV talk show

• Though Hall of Fame boxer Tim Bradley Jr. regards a fight between Tim Tszyu and Jermell Charlo as dangerous for both fighters, he said: “Tszyu is ready” for the challenge.
• Former world champion Chris Algieri said if Charlo does return to the super welterweight division following his loss to Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, he’d be best served to take on an interim fight before Tszyu as Charlo may need to readjust to the division.
• Former world champion Paulie Malignaggi compares Tim Tszyu to Ray Beltran, one of his former sparring partners.

Timothy Bradley Jr — ProBox TV talent, former world champion, and Hall of Fame boxer. Bradley fought Manny Pacquiao three times, Juan Manuel Marquez, and Brandon Rios.
“It just all comes down to how [Jermall Charlo] comes down from [super middleweight back to junior middleweight]. If he can make that weight, maybe have a small title defense or so, and then fight Tim Tszyu, that would help serve [Charlo] if he were to fight Tim Tszyu.”
“Tim Tszyu is ready for a Charlo. I think the fight is still a bit dangerous. I am not sure what Charlo we are going to get if he is coming back down from 168-pounds to 154 [lbs], you got to put some respect on Charlo’s name. He is still a champion there. He can still punch.”

Chris Algieri — ProBox TV talent, ProBox TV commentator, and analyst. Chris is a former WBO juinor welterweight world champion and fought the likes of Ruslan Provodnikov, Manny Pacquiao, Amir Khan, Errol Spence Jr., and Conor Benn.
“It is a very good match-up [between] Charlo and Tszyu, but I don’t think that will happen awhile. What is going to be next for Tim Tszyu is really the question?”
“If [Charlo] is to make it back to 154 [lbs] he is going to need a fight before fighting Tim Tszyu, because he has to feel comfortable at that weight, but I am telling you going backwards on a scale is a very difficult thing to do after the age of thirty.”

Paulie Malignaggi — ProBox TV talent, ProBox TV commentator, and analyst. Chris is a former two-division world champion, who has fought the likes of Adrien Broner, Amir Khan, Zab Judah, and many other others.
“One thing I have noticed [Tim Tszyu] does very well, despite not [using] a jab, he has a sort of change of speed I have noticed. He sort of sneaks up on you then he rushes you. He has subtle distance changes. [Tszyu] has a very, very good command of the distance.”
“You know who Tim Tszyu reminds me of? I am going to come out with a random name, and people will think it is random, but I used to spar this kid, Ray Beltran. Ray Beltran used have this kid of style where he was the only guy in my life that made we question my jab without being able to jab back at me.”
