LIVE & LOUD in the Sports Bar

Australia’s brightest boxing star today, Tim Tszyu, steps onto the grand stage as he headlines a mega pay-per-view card at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Aussie champ Tim Tszyu will face American Sebastian Fundora with two world titles on the line next weekend after his planned Las Vegas bout with Keith Thurman had to be cancelled.

Former world champion Thurman pulled out of the March 31 (AEDT) event after suffering a freak injury during a training session. American promoters Premier Boxing Champions on Tuesday confirmed Fundora — who was already fighting on the undercard — would now take on Tszyu in the main event.

Fundora, 26, was due to face Serhii Bohachukmost for the vacant WBC super welterweight title, meaning that belt will now also be on the line along with Tszyu’s WBO title.

The new bout presents a unique challenge for Tszyu (24-0, 17 KOs), with Fundora nicknamed the “Towering Inferno” due to his 197cm frame. That’s 22cm taller than Tsyzu and 26cm taller than Thurman.

Fundora’s (20-1-1, 13 KOs) most recent professional fight was a KO loss to Brian Mendoza in April 2023.

Tszyu also last fought Mendoza, but defeated him by unanimous decision when the two clashed on the Gold Coast late last year.

Undercard Matches:

Fellow Australian Michael Zerafa, vying for the WBA middleweight championship against Erislandy Lara.
