Sebastian Fundora record

Sebastian Fundora has a 21-1-1 record, with 13 of his wins coming inside the distance.

The American southpaw - known as The Towering Inferno due to his 6-foot-6 height - was last seen claiming a split decision victory in an upset win over the previously unbeaten Australian Tim Tszyu in March, becoming an outright world champion for the first time in the process.

Fundora made his debut in 2016 with a first-round stoppage win over Jose Cardenas in LA before heading to Mexico for a three-fight stint in 2017, a run that included two wins over inexperienced but also unbeaten opponents.

In total, Fundora fought seven times in 2017 as he attempted to establish himself and made trips to Uruguay and Argentina, claiming wins over Emiliano David Silguero and the 11-6-1 David Ezequiel Romero respectively.

The Towering Inferno then embarked on a five-fight run of stoppage wins on US soil, including wins over previously unbeaten opponents in the shape of Ve Shawn Owens, Donnie Marshall and Hector Manuel Zepeda.

His winning run was ended in his 14th professional fight as he drew with Jamontay Clark in a bout for the vacant WBC Youth light middleweight title.

Fundora won his next five fights and a unanimous decision win over Spain’s Sergio Garcia, who boasted a 33-0 record when they met, gave him a chance to challenge for the interim WBC super welterweight title.

Fundora faced Erickson Lubin in what proved to be an epic encounter. Lubin was knocked down in the second round but recovered and scored a knockdown of his own in the seventh, before Fundora rallied and stopped his opponent in the ninth.

The 26-year-old followed up that success by outpointing Carlos Ocampo but then saw his unbeaten record ended in spectacular fashion by Brian Mendoza, who stopped Fundora in the seventh to take The Towering Inferno's WBC interim light middleweight belt.

Fundora then went on to face Tszyu and was rated as the big underdog before their world title clash, having stepped in as a replacement for Keith Thurman, and claimed a remarkable win via split decision. This saw him regain the WBC light middleweight title and take the WBO belt as well.

Errol Spence Jr. record

Errol Spence Jr. has a 28-1 record with 22 wins inside then distance, but he will be coming into his showdown with Fundora on the back of the first loss of his impressive career.

Spence took on fellow unbeaten American Terence Crawford in a showdown for the undisputed welterweight championship in July of last year but lost his IBF, WBA and WBC titles.

The Truth was considered a slight underdog in the build-up to the blockbuster encounter and the fight looked to be a potential classic between two well-matched opponents. Instead, Crawford dominated throughout and floored Spence in the second round and then twice in the seventh, before eventually claiming a victory in the ninth. 

As an amateur, Spence competed in the Olympics in London in 2012 but lost in the quarter-finals to eventual Bronze Medal winner Andrey Zamkovoy and turned professional shortly afterwards with a KO victory against Jonathan Garcia.

Spence claimed an eye-catching win over Emmanuel Lartey in 2013 and the following year made a step up in class by outpointing Ronald Cruz the following year.

Victories over the likes of Samuel Vargas, Chris van Heerden and Chris Algieri established Spence as a serious challenger and in 2017 he travelled to England to face IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook in his hometown of Sheffield.

Brook went into the bout after losing his unbeaten record to Gennady Golovkin in a middleweight bout, and Spence inflicted a second defeat on Special K with an 11th-round TKO.

Spence went on to dominate the division with wins over the likes of Carlos Ocampo, Shawn Porter, Danny Garcia and Yordenis Ugas before coming up against Crawford.
