Sebastian Fundora believes former unified welterweight champion Errol Spence isn’t the same fighter he once was.

Fundora Expresses Sadness Over Spence’s Current State

‘The Towering Inferno’ Fundora sounded sad when he talked about how poor Spence looked now, as if he felt sorry for him. WBC and WBO junior middleweight champion Fundora is seemingly reluctant to do anything to worsen his condition when they meet in October.

Fundora (21-1-1, 13 KOs) says he watched the 34-year-old Spence (28-1, 22 KOs) working out recently and noted the power might still be there, but he’s not the same guy.

Spence was coming off a ninth-round knockout against Terence Crawford last year in July 2023, and he took a terrible beating in a fight that probably should have been stopped after the fourth. Errol stayed in there and was pounded by Crawford until the referee mercifully halted the contest.

Spence’s Performance Since Car Crash Raises Concerns

Spence had been looking bad since coming back from his horrific car crash on October 10, 2019. In Spence’s two performances after that against Danny Garcia and Yordenis Ugas, his reaction time was slow, and punches did not look as explosive as they’d been in 2018.

Ugas was sensational in a losing effort against Spence but was dominated in his next fight by Mario Barrios, further proof that Errol no longer has it.

Against the depleted-looking Spence, the 36-year-old Crawford looked better than he had in many years, giving fans an impression that Bud is still the vintage fighter he’d once been six to eight years earlier.

“The power still could be there. I seen a couple of videos of him doing mits and all that. It’s just not the same anymore,” said Sebastian Fundora to TBD, talking about Errol Spence.
