Tim Tszyu describes his longtime girlfriend Alexandra Constantine as his rock and she was by his side again after his latest victory.
Tszyu moved his boxing record to 18-0 when Dennis Hogan’s corner threw in the towel in round five of their fight in Newcastle on Wednesday night — and Constantine was one of the first people in the ring to congratulate him.

“My missus has been there from the get-go,” the 26-year-old told news.com.au ahead of the bout.
“She’s my rock. She’s the one that supports me. The person that I come home to every day. Even on hard days, she’s always there, sticking by my side.”
Tszyu grew up in the spotlight because of his famous father Kostya’s global fame and his popularity is soaring as his Instagram following cruises past 115,000.
But he’s still the same man at home and is helping Alexandra deal with the spotlight.
“Between us, nothing has changed,” he said. “She’s getting used to more attention. Privacy is slowly going away. People are always looking (at us). I’ve been used to it from a young age because of Dad, but she’ll be all right.”

“I don’t chase fame,” Tszyu added. “I know it comes with the game and is part of the territory. The fact I can make someone’s day by just shaking their hand or taking a photo is something I’ll always take time to do with the fans, because without them none of this would be possible.
“But I don’t chase it. I just understand that it’s coming and it’s only going to get worse.”
