Carlos Ocampo plans to spoil the Tim Tszyu vs. Jermell Charlo fight.

Ocampo is set to face Tszyu for the Australian’s interim WBO 154-pound title. The bout takes place on Sunday, June 18 – June 17 in North America – from the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre in Broadbeach, Queensland, Australia.

Although many wanted to see Tszyu vs. Charlo, the champ has been dealing with injuries. However, the hope is if Tszyu beats Ocampo next weekend, the fight will happen next. With that, Carlos Ocampo knows many fans want to see that bout so he plans to spoil all those plans.

“I took the fight against Tim Tszyu because he represents an important challenge in my career. He is the one who holds the title today, and on June 18 he will understand what it is to meet a Mexican. I will beat Tim Tsyzyu, make no mistake,” Ocampo said (h/t BoxingScene). “I wish him a speedy recovery [with the dog bite] because I hope it’s not an excuse on Sunday June 18. I won’t aim for your arm because I’m a gentleman. But remember, protect yourself at all times. This has been the best preparation of my career, the sparring was better than that of many world champions and my work won’t be in vain even though I have to go to the other side of the world.

“I truly believe I will beat Tim in the most unexpected way. Us Mexicans are different. We are distinguished fighters, we are real, we come to fight,” Ocampo continued. “In Mexico, sparring is with 12 ounces, not like in the rest of the world, which is with 16. Here (in Mexico) boxers fight to win breakfast tomorrow and the rest of the world doesn’t understand that. I’m going to fight to bring the title home. The prize for winning this fight will be me bringing the world title home to Ensenada, Baja California.”

Carlos Ocampo is coming off a decision loss to Sebastian Fundora back in October for the WBO interim super welterweight title.
