Given the hype surrounding Tszyu versus Mendoza, three football stadiums were chosen to host the championship: Commbank Stadium in Parramatta, McDonald Jones Stadium in Newcastle and CBUS Super Stadium on the Gold Coast.

A fourth option is the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.

From Las Vegas, Tszyu said he was pleased with his preparations in the fight capital of the world and said he would like to know soon exactly which city and venue the fight will take place.

The unbeaten Sydneysider, who will retain the WBO title when Jermell Charlo retires later this month, added that his fight against interim WBC champion Mendoza will be his last at home for the foreseeable future.

“Yes, it will be,” he said.

“One more massive battle at home in front of everyone, and then it’s time for world domination.

“I’ve said it for some time now that it will be difficult to see me fighting at home in the future.

“I have a hit list of names that you all know I want – and I’ve already mentioned them – but first I have a job to do.

“Mendoza has shown that he is a beast and that is my sole focus. World domination can wait.”

Newcastle has emerged as a surprise candidate to host the Tszyu fight, but would be an obvious fight given the city’s long association with Australia’s No. 1 fighting family – formerly known as Tszyucastle.

When asked about possible fights in a sold-out NRL stadium, the fighter continued: “I’m keen to know the venue and I’ve been pestering my manager and the boys (No Limit).

“But I leave the business to them.

“I have no distractions at the moment.

“I just eat, sleep and breathe while boxing.

“I’m making sure I work harder than ever for my fight next month.”

Tszyu’s manager Glen Jennings also said the fight was a “last hurray” for his client, saying: “This will be the last opportunity for Australia’s huge Tszyu fan base to see Tim on home soil.”

“After Mendoza, we expect all of Tim’s fights to take place abroad because they will all be major mega fights.

“But at the moment his focus is on Mendoza and the boys are secretly preparing in Las Vegas.

“It’s just business.

“No distractions, no shortcuts, no excuses.”

While Tszyu sees a host of megastars in his fighting future, his first test will now be big hitter Mendoza, who is also the WBC interim champion.

Back in April, the 29-year-old took this strap from Sebastian Fundora with a left hook and then a right hand so brutally that they have him in discussions for the Knockout of the Year 2023.

Previously, the American also pulled off a decisive upset against Jeison Rosaria, finishing off his rival with a devastating uppercut in the fifth round.

The back-to-back highlight reel stoppages have also moved Mendoza (22-2) up to the No. 3 seed in the division, Tszyu claims, behind him and the currently-unified King Charlo.

While Tszyu is currently interim WBO champion, he will be elevated to regular champion on October 1, with undisputed division king Charlo set to lose the belt when he moves up two weight classes to challenge Canelo Alvarez.
