Tim Tszyu vs Carlos Ocampo
This card takes place tonight (Saturday, June 17, 2023 at 10:00 p.m. ET, 7:00 p.m. PT.), with the main event not occurring until around 12:45 a.m. ET, exclusively on Showtime. Showcasing the main event down under we get boxing star, Tim ‘The Soul Taker’ Tszyu (22-0-0, 16 KOs), defending his WBO Interim Title against Carlos ‘Chema’ Ocampo (35-2-0, 22 KOs). The exciting 12-round super welterweight bout will headline the event being staged from the Gold Coast Convention Centre from Broadbeach, Queensland, Australia.
The Aussie, Tim Tszyu, the 28-year-old Interim WBO World Super Welterweight Champion, has been performing as a professional athlete for six years now and remains undefeated. He is coming off an electrifying knockout victory over former champion Tony Harrison back in March. Tszyu is seen to be firmly in line for Louisiana’s Jermell Charlo’s (35-1-1. 19 KOs) undisputed status and titles later this year, assuming he is victorious this weekend.
Recently Tszyu said, “Dad fought five Mexicans and beat them all in his career. He destroyed the greatest Mexican fighter of all time in Julio Cesar Chavez, and I would love to do the same over my career.”
The 27-year-old No. 1 ranked super welterweight Latino boxer, Ocampo, flew to Australia from Mexico to take the title from Tszyu . Tszyu recently stated, “On June 17 he will understand what it is to meet a Mexican. I will beat Tim Tszyu, make no mistake.” He’s been in the pro-boxing circuit for ten years. He is also coming off a knockout victory which took place back in March over Mauricio Gutierrez Castor. As a matter of fact, Ocampo only possesses two losses over the course of his 36 fight pro record to date.
Other Notable Bouts on the Card
The rest of the card is solid looking. We have the 12-round IBF Super Bantamweight eliminator match between the New South Wales favorite, Sam Goodman (14-0, 7 KO) and the undefeated Las Vegas-based, Ra’eese ‘The Beast’ Aleem (20-0, 12 KOs). Also on the docket we get Justin Frost vs Hassan Hamdan going at it for the Australian Super Lightweight Title.
