    Default Tim Tszyu attacked by an animal.

    AUSTRALIAN boxing champ Tim Tszyu has been rushed into hospital after being attacked by an animal.

    Organisers and fans are now unsure whether Tim Tszyu's fight against Carlos Ocampo will go ahead or not.

    Timofei Konstantinovich Tszyu is professionally known as Tim Tszyu.

    He was born on November 2, 1994, in Sydney, Australia, to Russian parents, and has a younger brother, Nikita, who is also a boxer.

    Tim was educated at St George Christian School and Newington College in his teen years, and studied for a business degree at the University of Technology Sydney.

    Tim's father is boxing legend Kostya, a former undisputed light-welterweight champion.

    His father was inducted into the international Boxing Hall of Fame in 2011.

    Tim began showing an interest in sport from an early age, enrolling in gymnastics at six, later switching to football at ten.

    After his family relocated to Moscow for a few months when he was 13, he began to lose interest in football.

    On their return to Sydney, he quit footie for good and took up boxing when he was 15.

    Tim's amateur boxing career was illustrious, he set an amateur boxing record of 33-1.

    He went professional in 2016 when he was 22 years old.

    On Sunday, May 28, 2023, Tim was attacked by a dog and was hospitalised as a result.

    The attack has caused doubts as to whether the boxing champ will be able to defend his world title on June 18, 2023.

    However, No Limit Boxing CEO George Rose believes the fight will still go ahead as planned.

    It has been reported that Tim sustained a bite to his right arm that required emergency intervention.

    Tim's manager, Glen Jennings, is confident that the fight will happen as scheduled.

    He said: "The wound was superficial. The post-surgical report is all good."

    Being Australia that’s literally night and day?! Did a domesticated foot long spider just nibble a toe or did a pack of prison jacked carnivorous Roos carry him off

    I heard he was at a friends B'day party and a dog latched on to his forearm.
    They want your @$$ beat because upsets make news. News brings about excitement, excitement brings about ratings. The objective is to bring you up to the tower and tear your @$$ down. And if you don't believe that, you're crazy.

    It does say dog in the article but I get the feeling the writer didn't want to mention what kind of animal it was for as long as possible, just to make you think to could have been a Wallaby, shark or koala.

    Shark bites can be fatal if the shark is on land when it happens.
