SYDNEY, Australia (AP) _ Kostya Tszyu, who retained the WBC super lightweight title by stopping Julio Cesar Chavez last Saturday, wants to help Australian boxers prepare for the Olympics.

``I’ll try to help the Australian team be successful in the Olympic Games and then if everything goes well, we’ll fight in December,″ said Tszyu, a world amateur champion for Russia before moving to Australia in 1991.

Tszyu said his next opponent likely would be Arturo Gatti or WBA champion Sharmba Mitchell. He also hopes to meet Zab Judah, the IBF champion, who is scheduled to defend his title against Terronn Millett at Uncasville, Conn., on Satueday.
