Sebastian Fundora Wants to Face Danny Garcia Next!
For his next in-ring challenge, Interim WBC super welterweight champion Sebastian “The Towering Inferno” Fundora (19-0-1, 13 KO’s) will face Carlos Ocampo. In that match-up, Fundora will be a significant favorite to win. Yet, if given the opportunity, as told to Fight Hype, The Towering Inferno would love to dance with two-division world champion Danny “Swift” Garcia (37-3, 21 KO’s).
Thus far in his career, The Towering Inferno has been a living nightmare for his opposition in the ring. Standing at 6’5, the 24-year-old Floridian is freakishly tall for the division. With that height and length, Fundora makes himself a rather daunting target to hit. Even worse for his opponents is The Towering Inferno’s outrageous work rate. So far, no one has been able to solve the riddle presented by Fundora. Perhaps Garcia is the one to do it.
“It’s a good fight! I feel that he is turning back into the Danny Garcia that we know and love. That weight jump was what he needed to feel comfortable with his body again. I would love to get a fight with him, of course, just like everybody else. Everybody thinks that’s a good money fight, who doesn’t want to make money in the sport? He’s a big name, a former champion. I mean he is already introduced to the weight class but let’s try to introduce him again!”
GOOD STEP UP?
For his last tour of duty, Garcia successfully breached the 154-pound division by beating Jose Benavidez Jr by way of UD. It was a solid win to the Swift who’s career has gone rather stagnant since his campaign at welterweight. Feeling the extra weight will aid him in the ring, it will be interesting to see how he carries himself in the division or if he is to prove to be the odd man out at the weight.
Swift has long let it be known that he wants to become a three division champion before he retires. Beating the interim champion would put Garcia on the fast track to securing a title shot. First though, Fundora must pass the test of Carlos Ocampo. If he is successful, then let’s hope that a fight announcement for Fundora versus Danny Garcia follows closely behind.
