Tim Tszyu vs Sebastian Fundora Betting Preview

With a 24-0-0 record and 17 knockout victories, Tim Tszyu is ready to pounce after a convincing unanimous decision victory over the highly regarded Brian Mendoza.

 

In this weight class, there is a distinct beast in Sebastian Fundora (20-1-1, 13 KOs). With a height of 197 cm and a reach of 203 cm, “The Towering Inferno” consistently towers above the competition, hence the nickname, and this battle is much like any other.

That said, it had no bearing on his most recent opponent. Before Tszyu, Fundora faced Mendoza in 2023, but he was knocked out in the seventh round; as he prepared to unleash his patented uppercut, boxing betting fans saw Mendoza mercilessly end the fight by launching return fire over the top.

 

Boxing Parlay Pick Leg 1: Fight To Go The Distance/No (-300)

You would think that, at 6 feet 5 inches tall, Fundora would fight from a distance, using jabs to deterhis opponents. However, that isn’t the case, oddly enough. The Florida native is a bit of a rogue when it comes to fighting on the inside; he oftendisregards defense and is overlyaggressive. When he faced Mendoza, another powerful puncher like Tszyu, he paid the ultimateprice for this.

In his desire to land strikes, Fundora often lowers his guard and leans forward. But this has made things worse for him since he should avoid such exchanges, let his opponent come near, and utilize counter-striking techniques to find the knockout blow.

In contrast, the Australian keeps his opponents guessing with various strikes and a barrage of power punches when necessary. A lot of things are working for Fundora, and the WBO champion will have a tough time with him because of his height and the powerful uppercuts he delivers. Still, the defending WBO champ enters Saturday with Las Vegas boxing odds in his favor for a reason.

With the moneyline price providing us with enough juice to start a drinks factory, we’re banking on a finish in this contest, one that is most likely to stem from Tszyu’s hands. Seventeen of the Aussies’ 25 pro career wins came by knockout, and Fundora’s body is just waiting to be punished via the crushing power hooks Tszyu possesses.

 

 

  • Fundora lost via KO/TKO in his most recent bout
  • Tszyu has won 17 fights via KO/TKO

 

Tszyu vs Fundora Betting Odds

 

Rolando Romero vs Issac Cruz Betting Preview

Following a disgraceful ending and unjust awarding of the WBA Championship in his title-winning bout versus Ismael Barroso, Rolando Romero (15-1-0, 13 KOs) hopes to gain some respect back from this awkward outing when he defends the strap versus a fierce opponent in Issac Cruz.

Cruz (25-2-1, 17 KOs), better known as ‘Pitbull,’ is one of two challengers that managed to take pound-for-pound great Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis to the judge’s scorecards and is undoubtedly one of the toughest tests capable of troubling most top-ranked fighters on their best day.

 

Boxing Parlay Pick Leg 2: Over 9½ Rounds (-115)

The challenger actually comes into this bout in better shape than the champion, which is rather unusual. Romero was in the loser’s column before his contentious victory with Barroso, and while he had a respectable first five rounds versus ‘Tank,’ Davis knocked him out with a monster left in the sixth round. Couple this with his lackluster performance against the veteran Barroso, and he’s rightfully the underdog at the sportsbook.

My initial thoughts earlier this week had me thinking that Cruz could emulate an early stoppage as ‘Tank’ did. However, after further inspection, I’m more inclined to believe Cruz’s knockout potential may come in in the final two rounds. Defensively, Romero isn’t bad, and while Cruz does relentlessly chase his opposition down, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Romero on his backfoot all night long while consistently clinching and dodging the fight-ending moments early on.

A Cruz KO/TKO is as live as ever, but if Romero can get on the inside, pop his shots, and quickly evade, as we’ve witnessed him do in the past, he can certainly survive until the tenth to see the total go over.

 

 

  • Cruz has gone over the total in four of his last six pro bouts
  • Romero has only been knocked out by ‘Tank’ Davis during his pro career
