NIKITA Tszyu has admitted to carrying a “hatred” for Dylan Biggs as bookmakers wind Australia’s youngest champion in to become the man most likely to end The Butcher — and his family’s unbeaten run on home soil.
While almost unbackable through the first seven fights of his undefeated career, Tszyu has opened a $1.60 TAB favourite for next Wednesday’s Newcastle Entertainment Centre showdown.
Biggs, meanwhile, is $2.32 — or around half the odds of any previous Nikita Tszyu rival.
It comes as the undefeated son of Kostya Tszyu admitted to Fox Sports Australia he is yet to emerge from the large shadow cast by both his Hall of Fame father and WBO world champion brother, Tim.
Tszyu also returned serve on Biggs after the champ, speaking with journalists in Brisbane a day earlier, labelled him ‘Baby Tszyu’, called his new TV commercial “cringey” and explained in no uncertain terms who would be walking out last on fight night.
