The upcoming match is another opportunity for Jeff Horn to achieve another milestone in his boxing career. Horn is coming off from the last month’s revenge win, in which he scored two knockdowns to secure a ten-round decision over Michael Zerafa in their middleweight rematch.
The two biggest options for Horn are both on domestic soil- a showdown with rising star Tim Tszyu or a trilogy fight with Michael Zerafa. Jeff Horn will fight with Tim Tszyu on 22nd April 2020 for WBO Global junior middleweight titles. No title is at stake, but the bragging right is worth fighting for. More so, the outcome of the match is likely to earn the winner a title bout later in the year.
