There was no doubt about the victory of Tszyu, who boxed with patience and intelligence, to the delight of his followers in Australia, in a solid effort.

The first four rounds were a little strange, because Tszyu did not come determined to finish Mendoza early. They were a little dull rounds, but the Australian showed his speed and power beyond the fifth when he decided to accelerate.

Mendoza looked a little better in the sixth, but from the seventh onwards control passed into the hands of Tszyu, with three lethal right uppercuts that completely shook Mendoza, but without going to the canvas.

In the ninth, Tszyu arriving with more powerful blows, always cautious, but unleashing his fists with great strength.

In the tenth, Tszyu came at him with power punches in the final minute of the round.

Mendoza bleeding, and he looked bad with so many power blows thrown by the Australian. A cut on the left eyebrow, a lot of body blows and Mendoza was at the mercy of the Australian’s power.
