Tim Tszyu vs Brian Mendoza is going to be a fascinating bout. Both fighters are coming off of spectacular knockout wins. Tim Tszyu was bit by a dog a week before his last fight against Carlos Ocampo, but went ahead with the match anyway and knocked him out one minute and 17 seconds into the first round — with 26 stitches in his arm. Brian Mendoza was a massive underdog in his last fight against Sebastian Fundora, but he was able to stun him with a left hook, then follow up with a flurry that left Fundora wondering what his own name was. Tszyu and Mendoza meet in the ring this weekend to fight for Tzsyu’s recently acquired WBO World Super Welterweight Championship belt.
Tim Tszyu vs Brian Mendoza start at 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 14. It will be broadcast on Showtime through Paramount+. There is one undercard fight, a 12 round featherweight fight between Sam Goodman and Miguel Flores, so the main event will likely start around 11:30 p.m. Here’s how to watch boxing completely free this weekend.
