"Whatever Australia wants, I'm here. I'm the Aus champ now. There's a name everyone wants - Jeff Horn," Tszyu, 20, said in the ring.

"Mr Teacher, I'd love to fight ya, but you've got my manager's number. You call me when you're ready."

Horn immediately laughed off the challenge.

"It's pretty funny," the former WBO welterweight champion said.

"I don't think [he's ready]. Not yet. He's got another couple of fights to prove [himself]."

Tszyu's record improved to 13-0 (11 knockouts) with the victory, and he also achieved something his father never did. Kostya Tszyu was the undisputed light welterweight world champion but unlike Tim, he never fought for an Australian title.

Both men came in slightly overweight at the first time of asking for Wednesday's fight at The Star in Sydney. Camilleri removed his underwear immediately and then made the limit, Tszyu did likewise around ten minutes later.

Tim Tszyu won his IBF Australasian super welterweight title fight against Dwight Ritchie in brilliant and brutal fashion. When asked about fighting fellow Aussie Jeff Horn , who famously defeated Manny Pacquiao in 2017, Tszyu seemed to indicate he had loftier goals in mind and that Horn had to first

"Tim is slick - a very smart fighter," Camilleri said of Tszyu.

Camilleri (17-6-1, 8 KOs) proved an awkward opponent for Tszyu, with the challenger struggling to find his rhythm in the early rounds. Tszyu was cut above his left eye in the second round but the blood didn't seem to bother him too much and Camilleri wasn't able to land enough clean shots in the bout to make the wound worse.

As Camilleri tired, and at times left himself open to the counter after his trademark overhand rights, Tszyu adjusted and was soon getting the better of the smiling Victorian.

"All my respect to Joel, he's a tough man," Tszyu said.

"It's a learning curve for me. I've learned more in this fight than in my whole career.

"He was tough. I expected to catch him a bit earlier but I couldn't get the shot. He's slick, he's awkward.

"But I dug deep. I went ten rounds, and I feel good. I could go another 12."

"This is just the beginning. I know it's a tough road and it's going to get tougher."

Earlier on Wednesday night, the highlight of the undercard to the Joel Camilleri-Tim Tszyu fight was a breathtaking all-action ten-round draw for the vacant WBA Oceania welterweight title between Jack Brubaker and Ty Telford.

In 1995, Tszyu won his first of many professional world championships at light-welterweight—the IBF title —by defeating Jake Rodríguez. Five successful defences made until an upset loss to Vince Phillips in 1997, which was Tszyu 's first professional defeat.

Slick southpaw, Opetaia, who is rated No.8 by the WBO and 11 by the IBF, wore down his opponent, who took a standing count in the seventh. Opetaia added the WBA interim cruiserweight title to the IBF and WBO regional titles he already owned.
