After winning the junior national championship on occasions, Tszyu quit boxing at the age of 16 to focus on his schooling.

Following high school graduation at Newington College in 2015, he enrolled in a Bachelor of Architectural Design at the University of Technology Sydney and worked in the industry for multiple years before returning to boxing at the age of 23.

Nikita Tszyu has surprisingly admitted to being caught up in the hype surrounding his famous surname – and the power associated with it – revealing: “I thought I could knock out everyone”.

Dryden did his best to mount some form of offense, but it was to little avail as he simply couldn’t inflict any punishment on his rival who was in and out of space within a flash.

Eventually the punishment to Dryden’s body, head and mind became too much as he did not make it out for the fourth round, leaving Tszyu to celebrate wildly with his team in his most complete performance to date.

Speaking on the Main Event broadcast, commentator Ben Damon marvelled at the “brutal” beatdown from Tszyu.

“He’s broken down his opponent with the most mature performance we’ve seen from him to date,” Damon said.

“He produced the full kit of punches. He boxed, but it was brutal. ‘The Butcher’ with another win, and he is absolutely loving it here in Tszyucastle.”

Exciting Sydney southpaw Nikita Tszyu extended his famous boxing family’s unbeaten record in Newcastle with an impressive stoppage and Queensland based Irishman Dennis Hogan finally won a version of a world title.

In boxing and some other sports, a southpaw stance is where the boxer has the right hand and the right foot forward, leading with right jabs, and following with a left cross right hook. It is the normal stance for a left-handed boxer.

The corresponding boxing designation for a right-handed boxer is the orthodox stance, which is generally a mirror-image of the southpaw stance. In American English, “southpaw” generally refers to a person who is left handed.

Left-handed boxers are usually taught to fight in a southpaw stance, but right-handed fighters can also fight in the southpaw stance for many reasons such as tricking the opponent into a false sense of safety.

Fighting in a southpaw stance is believed to give the fighter a strategic advantage because of the tactical and cognitive difficulties of coping with a fighter who moves in a mirror-reverse of the norm.
