Tszyu's second fight in America is currently scheduled for March 30 at a catchweight of 155 pounds against Keith Thurman.

He did, however, also convey how happy he was about the modification. "The fact that it's Keith Thurman makes me a bit happy. Greater name, higher calibre of battle.

Tim Tszyu's willingness to take on new challenges and his ability to quickly adjust to new opponents are examples of his dedication to leaving his imprint in the sport.
