The undefeated Tszyu has heard it all before and is predicting his 15th knockout victory in his 19th professional fight.
He even whispered as much in Spark’s ear.
“I’m just letting him know the dream ends tomorrow. Back to reality,” he said, adding Spark’s nice-guy image in front of the cameras was likely just a front.
“You don’t know who he is just by doing interviews.”
Despite his confidence, the 26-year-old said he’d trained just as seriously for Spark as he was preparing for Zerafa, who cited COVID-19 concerns for not leaving Victoria to fight in NSW.
“I’m always well prepared. I live by this,” Tszyu said.
“I’ve been living by this for my whole life so I only know how to do one thing – to train hard and to fight even harder.”
Asked what he thought about Spark’s comparisons to the Rocky Balboa story, a no-nonsense Tszyu repeated: “Tomorrow night it ends”.
