But Tszyu said The Herald of the Sunthat even if his promoters are able to lock the fight in Australia, he wants it to take place in America.

Why? Well, Tszyu has enjoyed his United States debut against Terrell Gausha so much that he’s keen to continue building on that momentum in the ‘land of opportunity’, as he put it.

“If the boys try to convince me to fight here, I’ll tell them I want to go,” Tszyu said. The Herald of the Sun.

“America is so big, the land of opportunities and dreams is endless. A hundred thousand pay-per-view purchases here in Australia is huge, a massive struggle. A hundred thousand in America is dog shit. So you can’t even compare.

“If you become a pay-per-view star in America, you’ve done it all over the world. Money, status, all three. I’ve been in this game for a little while, so I have to make the most of every opportunity. I have to fight in places I can only dream of. One day I will retire and live here in Sydney, resting. I can talk about the things I’ve done in my life.

And the Aussie said The Herald of the Sun that Vegas is his go-to spot for his next fight, whether it’s with Charlo or Castano.

“Everyone is interested, everyone is pumped,” Tszyu said of the reaction to his fight against Gausha. “You have guys like Errol Spence Jnr talking about the fight, all these boys that are up there all watching the fight and talking about it. We don’t have that here in Australia when I was fighting Aussie fighters. I need to be there.
