It is no secret that boxing happens to be a generational sport, meaning that sons like to give boxing a go if their fathers made a name for themselves by fighting. It seems as though almost every champion has a son that wishes to continue the family tradition, and for Kostya and Nikita Tszyu, the plan is no different.
“I reckon it [the Olympics] will be too late for me, I want to get into pros as early as possible.I want to get to the Commonwealth Games, then go pro. My dad did it early; I want to get as much experience in the professionals as I can. I don’t really like team sports, I don’t like depending on other people. I work hard by myself and get all the results for myself. I’ve got one job, that’s to win the gold,” stated Nikita.
