Tim Tszyu is back in the ring. The date when the Australian boxing star is set to throw punches next is Wednesday, November 17.
While No.1-ranked WBO junior middleweight contender is waiting for his opportunity to claim the world title, he faces No.7-ranked Takeshi Inoue of Japan. If successful, he is expected to challenge the winner of Jermell Charlo vs Brian Castano rematch.
