The 28-year-old Dryden, who is undefeated in four career fights, all by KO, also had a message for the son of Australian boxing legend Kostya Tszyu ahead of their Oct. 8 bout: He’ll be a ‘live dog.’ at the Newcastle Entertainment Center in Broad Meadow.

“I had just put a picture of a beer on my Instagram story. “Then all of a sudden ‘ring, ring’: I get a call asking if I want to fight Nikita Tszyu in 30 days.
‘I said there was no way I could make the weight at the time, I wasn’t even near a gym.
But he wasn’t going to say no a second time.
Dryden added that a six-week preparation is enough time for his conditioning to catch up, he has been ‘working hard’ when he trains and is ready to be a ‘live dog’.
After making his pro debut in 2016, and recording three wins in six months, Dryden was out of action for nearly four years with a back injury.
He later discovered that he had fractured the L1 of his vertebrae, and the only remedy was to rest.
Dryden later admitted that he hated the sport and suffered from depression, but now he is ready to put a stain on Tszyu’s boxing name.
Tszyu, 24, is undefeated in three career fights.
After graduating from the exclusive Newington College in 2015, he completed a Bachelor of Architectural Design at UTS and went on to forge a career in the field.
He returned to the ring in 2021 and is looking to follow in the path of his older brother, Tim Tszyu, who is considered by many to be Australia’s current leading boxer.
