Tim Tszyu is fighting for a world title.

Not just that, though, all the belts will be on the line.

It has been announced that Tim, son of boxing royalty Kostya Tszyu, will take on Jermell Charlo for the undisputed super welterweight straps.

The fight itself will happen on January 28, 2023 – meaning the Aussie will be waiting a while for his shot at the title.

There have been rumblings that this bout was going to take place for some time now.

With the challenger boasting a perfect, unblemished records, it seems like the ideal time to throw the two men in a ring together and see who comes out on top.

Charlo will be hoping that Tim's 0 will go, but there's more on the line for the Australian than just merely keeping a squeaky-clean record in tact.

That's right, with Charlo recently defeating Brian Castano, it means four shiny belts are up for grabs.

American star Charlo is the current WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO undisputed super welterweight champion of the world.

When the bookies' odds are finally released closer to show time, Charlo will probably emerge as the favourite – although the man from Down Under shouldn't be underestimated.

Along with former undisputed champ George Kambosos Jr, Tszyu is one of the best boxers to come from Australian shores in recent years.

Not only has he completely wiped out the rest of the competition in his home country, but the 27-year-old has also left his mark in the United States, recently using Terrell Gausha as a punch bag in his American debut.

Tszyu impressed, however, he did hurt his hand during the victory which required him to go under the knife.

He is still recovering from the surgery, but is expected to bounce back long before his world title fight in January of 2023.
