Tszyu vs Fundora: Fighter Previews

Tim “The Soul Taker” Tszyu

Tszyu has the opportunity to add an additional super welterweight world championship to his existing collection when he faces Sebastian Fundora in Las Vegas on Sunday. He was initially scheduled to fight Keith Thurman, but the latter had to pull out due to a bicep injury sustained during training.

The odds indicate the exceptional skill shown by 27-year-old Tszyu. The Australian athlete has evolved into a really proficient boxer who combines punching and defensive skills, making him a likely victor against any opponent in this particular weight division.

 

 

Sebastian “The Towering Inferno” Fundora

There is absolutely nothing to lose for Fundora (20-1-1, 13 KOs), and he’ll additionally have the chance to redeem himself after her devastating knockout defeat to Brian Mendoza last April, as the vacant WBC belt and the WBO crown are now at stake for him this weekend.

Fundora was promoted to the main event to face Tszyu for the gold on short notice, but he was previously scheduled to fight Serhii Bohachuk, his former sparring partner, on the same card, so a full fight camp won’t hinder his chances.

Tszyu vs Fundora: Main Event Breakdown & Analysis

Many believe Fundora poses a more difficult task than Thurman, especially on short notice. The underdog, standing at 6’5” and with a heavyweight reach of 80 inches, will have a significant advantage in height, with a benefit of eight and a half inches and a nine-and-a-half-inch edge in reach. Those figures are insane, especially in a weight class where most fighters barely reach six feet in height.

Ultimately, boxing predictions for this contest only rely on the extent of your faith in Tszyu at this juncture, and most of us have great confidence in him. The champion has an exceptional ring intelligence quotient and is fully capable of reducing this opponent’s size with the blistering body shots he’s known for.

In fact, some would suggest Tszyu has the perfect weapon to break a larger man down via those hooks he loves to rip to the body so much. Furthermore, it’s easy to see why the Las Vegas odds aren’t scared of Fundora’s size, as he was battling inside when Mendoza knocked him out, proving he has the terrible habit of sacrificing his length to exchange in the pocket.

 

The Best Betting Pick: Tszyu by KO/TKO [Odds – TBA]

The sportsbook cashed in nicely when a -1100 favorite in Fundora faltered to the power of Brian Mendoza, and although boxing math doesn’t always pan out as expected, Tszyu is more dangerous and skilled than Mendoza, thus giving us little hope in Fundora finally utilizing his size to dominate from range.

It’s going to the counter-striking, power shots, and brutal body blows, which should lead Tszyu to victory. Of course, he’ll be more than aware of the size discrepancy, but eventually, the power he all so often puts on display will break Fundora at the halfway point.

Dedicated boxing enthusiasts anticipate that Tszyu will achieve victory both in the center of the ring and on the outside, strategically maneuvering in the early setting to find his comfort zone. I do, too. Eventually, Tszyu will deliver cleaner, tougher, and more effective blows as Fundora heads towards his second KO/TKO defeat in a row.

 

  • Tszyu is undefeated, with 17 of his 24 pro career wins coming by KO/TKO
  • Fundora returns following a Round 7 KO/TKO loss

 

WBO & WBC World Super Welterweight Title Bout: The Crystal Ball Picks

In this orthodox vs. southpaw championship bout, a quick rub of my crystal ball reveals that Tszyu’s counter-striking ability and power shots will be too much for Fundora to handle. Reminiscent of Mendoza’s successful KO/TKO win over Fundora, Tszyu will eventually break down the large target in front of him and walk away with all the gold.

 

Potential Bets from a Tszyu Round 6 KO/TKO:

  • Tszyu Moneyline: [-550]
  • Under 7 ½ Rounds: [-115]
  • Tszyu To Win In Rounds 4-6: [+300]
  • Tszyu To Win In Rounds 5-8: [+210]
  • Fight To Go The Distance/No: [-335]
