WBC/WBO junior middleweight champion Sebastian Fundora is looking forward to his fight against Errol Spence. They still don’t have a date, but Fundora (21-1-1, 13 KOs) expects it to happen in October in Texas.

The Biggest Fight of Fundora’s Career

Spence (28-1, 22 KOs) will be the biggest name that Fundora, 26, has fought in his eight-year career. This could end Spence’s career, as he told his fans it might be his last.

Errol lost to Terence Crawford by a ninth-round knockout last year in July, and it would be a signal that it’s time to hang them up if he loses to Fundora.

The 6’6″ ‘Towering Inferno’ Fundora is coming off a twelve-round split decision win over WBO junior middleweight champion Tim Tsyu on March 30th. Now, he wants to add Spence’s name to his resume.

Texas Fight Possible

“I hope so. Nothing is set yet, but later in October. They tell me that date, so it’ll be great in Texas,” said Sebastian Fundora to Little Giant Boxing about his title defense against Errol Spence Jr.

“I’m very excited. I wanted that fight two years ago when him and Crawford were in the mix of finalizing a fight. Now, I got it, and it’s my turn. It feels good. You guys saw me build up with my sister. Now, we’re both champions. So, it’s been a good ride.

“It’s just a job. You know you clock into your work. Some people change their voices. I change my attitude, I guess, and put it in the ring,” said Fundora about how he goes from being a nice guy outside of the ring to a fierce competitor inside it.

“Who knows what’s going through his mind? Hopefully, he’s healthy and ready for when we step in the ring,” said Fundora, reacting to being told that Spence said that this might be his last fight.

“We’ll see what happens. The belts are spread out now. It’s kind of like an Avengers movie,” said Fundora when asked if he’s interested in becoming the undisputed champion at 154.

“We have two of the best names, Spence and Crawford, in the weight class. It feels good. Hard work. We weren’t really getting too much of those big fights, but now we are. So, the belts mean that, and I’m happy to have them.

“The dream fights are happening now with Errol Spence and with Crawford hopefully next,” said Fundora.
