Tim Tsyzu returns to the ring this coming Wednesday where he takes on Takeshi Inoue and one of his previous opponents, former world welterweight champion Jeff Horn, has revealed what it's like to face the 27-year-old.

Tsyzu and Horn fought in August 2020 in a fight which saw Horn endure a beating for eight rounds.

Speaking to Fox Sports, Horn compared what it's like to face Tsyzu and current WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford, and claimed that his fellow countryman has the heavier hands.

"They’re two completely different fighters. I guess I had similar fighting style for both of them," Horn said.

"I thought I was just going to be able to ram-road Crawford, which wasn’t able to happen. So he ran me into punches.

"Same with Tszyu. But Tszyu had heavier, sharper shots I feel like. Well, maybe not sharper, but heavier shots than Crawford. So I think that’s the advantage he’s got. He’s just got size and boxing ability-wise, they’re both very similar."

Horn lost his WBO 147lb title to Crawford in 2018 after being stopped by the American in the ninth round.
