Tim Tszyu, son of former undisputed world champion Kostya Tszyu and WBO junior middleweight world champion up to 69.9kg, has undergone surgery on both hands. It is reported by BoxingScene with reference to Courier Mail.

“Tim has been fighting with sore hands the last few fights, so given the long period of time we have anticipating a rematch between Castano and Charlo, it made sense to address this issue now. We did corrective surgery to make sure Tim’s arms are ready for the biggest fight of his life,” Tszyu’s manager Glen Jennings said.

The rematch between Castaño and the WBA, WBC and IBF world champion, American Jermell Charlo, is scheduled for May 14. His first fight in September of last year ended in a draw.
