Irish boxing star Dennis Hogan says Tim Tszyu isn’t ‘showing the same signs’ as his legendary father in the ring
The former Soviet Union fighter, who passed up the Barcelona Olympics to turn pro in Australia at the start of the 1990s, is still one of the country’s most popular sportsmen.
And now his son is an unbeaten fighter himself — and gearing up to take on Kildare man Hogan tomorrow in New South Wales.
Irish boxers do not have stellar records against so-called ‘sons of legends’. Andy Lee lost his first world title shot to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in 2012, while Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan was beaten by Chris Eubank Jr in 2015.
But neither man has managed to surpass their fathers in the prize ring and have taken flak for their shortcomings in comparison. And Hogan reckons that, most of the time, sons of legendary boxers fall short of their lofty ancestral standards.
The Hurricane said: “I don’t think they’ve ever lived up to it. There’s a lot more than that.
“There’s Shane Mosley Jr, Steve Collins’ son as well, not as good. Evander Holyfield’s son is boxing and I don’t think he’s showing the same signs.

“Kostya had over 300 amateur fights and came over here from Russia with all that experience. It’s not the same thing.”
Kostya — whose career was ended by Ricky Hatton in 2005 — attended Tim’s debut 11 years later but was too bossy at ringside for his son’s liking and told to stay away since.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Wednesday’s super welterweight clash between Tim Tszyu and Dennis Hogan is in some last-minute danger, as Hogan “has sensationally vowed to cancel his Wednesday night showdown with Tim Tszyu if prevented from wearing a pair of sponsored boxing trunks.”
More specifically, Hogan (28-3-1, 7 KO) has been barred from wearing shorts bearing sponsor PointsBet’s logo, as the card “has Sportsbet as its preferred betting partner.” The Irishman is not taking this demand lying down.
Jeff Horn was supposed to be Tim Tszyu’s last local test. Instead, Queensland-based Irishman Dennis Hogan stands in his way as one of boxing’s famous surnames returns to Newcastle.
In a city his father Kostya loved, Tim Tszyu headlines the Steel City Showdown against Hogan on Wednesday night inside the Newcastle Entertainment Centre.
At 17-0, Tszyu is considered the big favourite by the bookies despite Hogan’s significant edge in experience. At 36 years old, though, and coming off two straight losses — both in world title fights — it’s unclear what version of Hogan we will get.
