Horn’s biggest victory came in 2017 against Manny Pacquiao, although the result is marred in controversy with many believing Pacquiao deserved to be the victor. Nonetheless, the record books show Horn as the winner against one of the best boxers in the history of the sport.
Two fights after the Pacquiao victory, Horn suffered a ninth-round TKO loss against Terence Crawford who has an unbeaten 36-0 record at the time of writing.
Tszyu is 25 years old as he enters the fight against the 32-year-old Horn who has more experience inside the squared circle.
It is a little surprising to see such a discrepancy in the odds with the more experienced boxer a clear underdog.

Jeff Horn vs Tim Tszyu Tips & Predictions
There is no value in backing Tszyu at $1.45 as this is his biggest fight. On the other hand, this wouldn’t be considered Horn’s biggest fight after fights with Pacquiao and Crawford in 2017 and 2018 respectively. Following the Crawford loss, Horn defeated Anthony “The Man” Mundine in the first round via KO.
Happy to back Horn to win the fight and hand Tszyu his first loss.
