Tszyu, Fundorago head-to-head for WBC, WBO titles 

Australian boxing superstar Tim Tszyu and all-action super welterweight sensation Sebastian “The Towering Inferno” Fundora will meet for Tszyu’s WBO and the vacant WBC 154-pound world titles on Saturday, March 30 (Sunday Mar 31 in Uganda) from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

In the pre-fight media conference, Tszyu stated: “I had sparring for the new opponent come in on Monday and I was grateful for the great work they gave me. This fight is all about awkwardness when you have someone that tall. But nothing phases me. It is what it is and the show goes on.

“This is a unification now, so I’m very grateful for that. It’s a legacy-defining type of fight. I just have to keep doing what I’m doing and one day they ’ll say that the Tszyu family is the best to ever step into this boxing world.

He added: “I have met Fundora before and I respect him and how he fights. I just have to find the right shots. Every great boxer finds the way to win and we’ll find those keys on March 30.

“My message to the fans is definitely don’t blink during this one.”

On his part, Fundora said: “I have been training hard all camp. We only had a little bit to fix after our last fight, but my dad and my sister keep my mind straight. My sister Gabriela just became world champion, and now it’s my turn to go do the same.

“A win puts me back at number one in the division. That’s where I want to be. I have my eyes on all of the big names. This is the first stone in the Fundora legacy.

“I want to win this fight, become unified champion and keep going from there. We want to keep moving up.”
