PRODIGIOUS talent Tim Tszyu is set to secure his immediate boxing future.

The undefeated light middleweight, who has quickly tallied an unbeaten professional ledger after twelve fights, is on the cusp of announcing a move that will decide his short-term prospects.

The 24-year-old recently travelled abroad to the US, meeting with several high-profile promotional firms, including global giants Top Rank and Golden Boy Promotions.

While the specifics surrounding the meetings are yet to be confirmed, it is clear that Tszyu (12-0, 10 KOs) is ready to commit to one promotional outfit.

Given his relative inexperience in the paid ranks and lack of amateur pedigree, a move to an overseas firm could be seen as a premature, as he continues his development domestically.

Tszyu was last in action in February, halting former Commonwealth welterweight ruler Denton Vassell in just two heats.

Despite the impressive result and the associated WBA regional bauble that accompanies his biggest win, Tszyu still harbours ambitions to challenge for the Commonwealth title.

Domestically, the Sydney-born pugilist has fought in four states, as well as the lone international contest in New Zealand.

Given the current domestic landscape, the only promoters that appear to be in the position to offer televised opportunities are Dean Lonergan, due to his ties to Jeff Horn, and Matt Rose.

Lonergan’s promotional firm D&L Events were the promoter of Jeff Horn’s one round drubbing of Anthony Mundine, which proved to be an overwhelming success on pay-per-view.

Meanwhile, Rose’s company, No Limit Boxing, have televised a variety of cards on both pay-per-view and Fox Sports, that have been well received by the sporting public.
