Brian Mendoza Believes He’s A Bigger Puncher Than Tim Tszyu

Brian Mendoza Believes He’s A Bigger Puncher Than Tim Tszyu

Brian Mendoza is confident he has all the tools to beat Tim Tszyu this weekend.

Mendoza is set to face Tszyu in Australia for the WBO light middleweight title. Tszyu was originally the interim champ, but once Jermell Charlo fought Canelo Alvarez, he was stripped and Tszyu was promoted to the undisputed champ.

That adds to the stake of the fight but even with that, Brian Mendoza is still confident anyways. He knows his power will be too much for Tszyu and he expects to get the KO win.

“Me [I’m the bigger puncher in this fight]. Based on my resume and what I’ve done, I have more one-punch knockouts. Once [Tszyu] gets you, he’s a good finisher and everything, but just based on the facts that I have more explosive shots,” Mendoza said during a press conference this week (h/t BoxingScene).

“The thing about me. I have power, but I’m not just a power puncher. I don’t go in there trying to look for one shot,” Mendoza continued. “I’ll hurt you for 12 rounds … I’m even content with that. I do look for the knockout. I do want to put on a big show. I think that’s why I even got called here to this beautiful country in the first place for this title fight. But I’m in there to put on punishment for 12 rounds.”

Brian Mendoza knows he fights his heart out every single time so he won’t have to worry about not giving everything he has. But, he says he has a chip on his shoulder as people are writing him off and he’s eager to prove them wrong.

“I want to take out everybody in my division as well. It’s part of the game, and that’s why I say once we go in there, that switch flips, and it’s war. We’re aiming for the same goal, and only one can come out on top,” said Mendoza. “I have that chip on my shoulder, and it’s just no pressure. I’ve already tasted that defeat, and I know I don’t ever want that again. So hunger is really what makes a difference here, and I feel like that’s what adds to my hunger more than anyone else.”
