Errol Spence Calls for a Bout with Sebastian Fundora Next


Boxing fans have been waiting to hear any word about the future of former unified welterweight champion Errol “The Truth” Spence (28-1, 22 KOs). There’s a strong inclination that what could be upcoming for The Truth is a fight with newly crowned unified junior middleweight champion Sebastian “The Towering Inferno” Fundura (21-1-1, 13 KOs).

On March 30 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, Fundora scored the biggest victory of his career with a split-decision win over Tim Tzsyu to become the unified champion. An interested observer in attendance was Spence. He entered the ring during Fundora’s post-fight interview and said the following in regards to a potential fight against Fundora:

“It’s time to get it on. He’s got the big dog now. Let’s go!”

READY TO FIGHT AGAIN

Spence has been quiet since suffering the only loss of his professional career – a ninth-round stoppage to Terence Crawford in July 2023 in a fight for the undisputed title at 147. In January 2024, The Truth underwent cataract surgery.

In a potential matchup with Fundora, Spence would not only be moving up in weight. He would also be giving up a tremendous amount of height and reach. But the Texas native seemed unfazed as he gave his thoughts about The Towering Inferno.

“This is my first time seeing him in person. He’s got pretty good height, but we’ll break him down like we always do.”

One of Spence’s greatest assets is his body punching and overall inside fighting skills. He’ll need to get inside that length, work the breadbasket, and break down the slender 6’7” Fundora to beat him.

Fundora versus Spence is a more than makeable match, as both men fight for PBC. While The Towering Inferno would be the defending champion, Spence is a much bigger name and has a higher profile in the boxing community.

The junior middleweight champion is no fool. He’s aware that fighting Spence would result in a big payday. From the perspective of Spence, he sees Fundora as a talented fighter but someone he thinks he can beat. Given all those factors, especially their ties to PBC, Spence could get his wish and fight Fundora later this year.
