WBO Junior middleweight champion Tim Tszyu (24-0, 17 KOs) and substitute opponent Sebastian Fundora (20-1-1, 13 KOs) will fight this Saturday night, March 30th, on Premier Prime PPV at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The event costs $70 on PPV.

Keith Thurman, the originally scheduled opponent for Tszyu, suffered a training injury and pulled out. It was a move that many boxing fans saw coming due to the 35-year-old Thurman’s inactivity, with him having fought just three times since 2017.

Main Event Start Time

Tszyu vs. Fundora event start time at 8:00 p.m. ET / 12:00 A.M. UK. The ringwalks are approximately at 11:00 p.m. ET / 4:000 a.m. The UK.

The co-feature bout between WBA light welterweight champion Rollando ‘Rolly’ Romero (15-1, 13 KOs) and Isasc ‘Pitbull’ Cruz (25-2-1, 17 KOs) should be entertaining. That fight has knockout written all over it in favor of Pitbull Cruz, as Rolly looked poor in his last fight against Ismael Barroso.

Tszyu on the Switch and His Resolve

“No hesitation. I’m a fighter who loves up to my word,” said Tim Tszyu to Fight Hub TV about his reaction to Sebastian Fundora replacing the injured Keith Thurman. “He’s a completely different opponent than the one I’ve been prepping for, but it doesn’t matter.

“No, I don’t care. It’s done, finished. I don’t take stuff like that anymore. You did the dirty, that’s it. Whatever the excuse is, it’s done,” said Tszyu when asked if he could still face Thurman at some point. “You’re lucky you’re not going to get your head punched in.

“Damage, big damage. In every single way, to the body, to the head, he was going to be swelled up like a balloon in every way,” said Tszyu in what he had planned for Keith.
