WBO light-middleweight title Tim Tszyu has always dreamed about fighting in Las Vegas and will accomplish his life-long goal this weekend.

On Saturday, Tszyu will be facing off against Sebastian Fundora in a title unification bout that will see the WBO and WBC ligh-middleweight title on the line in the first ever PBC On Prime card.

During Thursday’s press conference, Tszyu told a touching story about dreaming of fighting in Vegas after watching Manny Pacquiao fight Miguel Cotto in 2019.

“We’re finally here. It’s been a long road, but I’ve dreamt of this moment my whole life. Everything I’ve done has led to this point.

“The show goes on and destiny awaits. Saturday night we get to fight for the belts. It’s all about collecting belts and collecting legacy. We’re going to show that the Tszyu name is the greatest boxing family of all time.”

“Every moment has led to this. In 2009 I came here to watch Manny Pacquiao fight Miguel Cotto and it was in my brain that this was where I wanted to be. Now I see Miguel Cotto sitting right here and it’s unbelievable.”

Tszyu is a massive -500 favorite against Fundora, who was a last-minute replacement after Keith Thurman was forced to pull out with an injury.
