Tszyu was born in Sydney, Australia to Siberian parents of Russian, Korean and Mongolian descent. His father, Kostya, is a former undisputed light-welterweight champion who was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2011. Tim's first sporting interest began to develop at the age of six when enrolled in gymnastics and later switched sports to association football at the age of 10. As a soccer player, he was selected to play for multiple local representative teams but his interest in the sport began to wane at the age of 13 when he temporarily relocated to Moscow with his family for a few months before returning to Sydney. At the age of 15, Tim decided to quit football and began pursuing a career in boxing. He attended Newington College throughout his teenage years and enrolled in a business degree at the University of Technology Sydney following high school graduation.
Tszyu amassed an amateur boxing record of 33–1 before turning professional in 2016 at the age of 22.
Professional boxing career
After being away from the sport for four years due to a hand injury, Tszyu made his professional debut in December 2016 when he defeated Zorran Cassidy by unanimous decision (UD) at the Sydney Cricket Ground. He won the WBC-ABCO Continental light-middleweight title in his seventh bout, with a UD over Wade Ryan. In November 2019, Tszyu defeated Jack Brubaker by technical knockout in the fourth round.
