There's still some argy-bargy over sponsorship deals, with Hogan insistent on displaying his sponsor, PointsBet, despite a clash with the promoter's preferred gambling sponsor, SportsBet.
"I don't care," Hogan told reporters this week. "I'll be wearing them, or I won't be there.... I'm not coming out unless I've got my sponsors on [my shorts]." We'll see. It shouldn't prevent the fight going ahead.
Unless you've been living under an Uluru-sized rock, you'll be aware that Tim Tszyu, 26, is one of the hottest properties in Aussie boxing. He might be the less experienced in this battle, but he steps into the ring with an undefeated record of 17 wins, 0 loses and 0 draws (13 of those wins came by way of knock out).
His opponent, 32-year-old Brisbane-based Irishman Dennis "Hurricane" Hogan, made his professional debut a full 5 years and 8 months before Tszyu. Consequently, he's fought 158 more professional rounds (233 to Tszyu's 75). Tszyu is ranked No.1 by WBC while Hogan is ranked No.10.

Tszyu vs Hogan live stream anywhere in the world using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Tszyu vs Hogan rights holders, you won't be able to access these streaming services when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN.
