Betting on Tszyu vs Gausha
Terrell Gausha’s three fights have went (1-1-1), a split decision draw against Austin Trout where Gausha was also a slight underdog. This gave Gausha the confidence that he could hang in there with some of the best, as Trout has shared the ring with the Charlo brothers, Canelo, and holds a win over Miguel Cotto.
In his next fight, Gausha took on #4 ranked super welterweight Erickson Lubin. He came up short and lost by unanimous decision. Lubin’s only loss to date is to Jermell Charlo.
After going one draw and one loss in his last two fights, Gausha needed a tune-up fight. That’s where Gausha stopped Jamontay Clark in the second round, scoring his first finish since 2016, where Orlando Lora retired after the seventh round.
The real A-side of this fight is Tim Tszyu, who has lofty ambitions for taking over America on his US debut this month. He’s fought his entire career in his native Australia, attracting some familiar boxing names to travel down under to take on the undefeated Aussie.
Terrell Gausha will be a step in the right direction for Tszyu who holds notable wins over Takeshi Inoue and Ireland’s Dennis Hogan. I don’t expect Gausha to be out of the fight early, it could get even more competitive as the championship rounds roll around. Betting on Tszyu to defeat Gausha by decision is my prediction here.
“I have come to America with big visions of taking over the whole super welterweight division and becoming the next great 154-pound champion of the world,” said Tszyu, the son of Hall of Fame fighter Kostya Tszyu. “To become a legend, you must come to America at some point in your career and leave a mark on the sport. I want to continue my family’s legacy in boxing, as well as forge my own journey. March 26 is the start of my era.”
Gausha a Prime Underdog
Terrell Gausha is unfazed by Tim Tszyu’s undefeated record. It’s all hype believes the Ohio-based boxer, who has a strong amateur boxing pedigree and a solid professional record.
“I definitely know I’m a real veteran in this game,” Gausha told the Main Event Boxing podcast this week.
“[I’m] an Olympian, I’ve fought some of the best. This is not going to be an easy night for him at all. This is not my first rodeo. I’m looking to take advantage of this experience.”
“I definitely predict me winning the fight, we will see whether it’s by knockout or decision,” Gausha said.
“I’m going to put on a beautiful display of my skillset and we’re going to give the fans a great show. We’re two great fighters and this is the perfect fight.
