Will the size of our available venues cost Newcastle the next Tszyu Fight?

No Limit Boxing announced on Tuesday that the Tim Tszyu v Takeshi Inoue super-welterweight fight will be relocated from the Gold Coast to another venue in Australia due to border restrictions.

The fight will proceed as scheduled on Wednesday, November 17, with a new venue to be announced in the coming days – and that venue is expected to be Sydney.

With Tim’s Manager, Glen Jennings, a proud Novocastrian the city would have been the ideal location for the largest fight of Tszyu’s career.

However, Glen told Newcastle Live Radio that witha reduction of 75% on patron numbers and a local Entertainment Centre that only seats 6,193 in full concert mode and 5,728 in the round, holding the fight in the Hunter would be unviable.
