The son of the legendary Russian boxer Kostya Tszyu has officially become the World Boxing Organization (WBO) middleweight champion. Tim Tszyu (31-2, 25 KOs) received the championship belt after its previous owner, Jermell Charlo (35-2-1, 19 KOs), withdrew from the fight for the super middleweight title against Saul Alvarez (60-2-2, 39 KOs).

The WBO stripped Charlo of his title because he refused to fight Tim Tszyu and chose to fight Canelo. Now Tszyu is the champion and will make his first defense on October 15 against Brian Mendoza.
