Tim Tszyu vs. Sebastian Fundora live fight updates, results, highlights from 2024 boxing fight

Tim Tszyu (24-0) looks to add the WBC super welterweight title to his existing WBO strap when he faces Sebastian Fundora (20-1-1) in Las Vegas on March 30 (Mar. 31 in Australia).

Nicknamed “The Towering Inferno”, the 197cm represents a vastly different challenge to Keith Thurman, the man Tszyu had been preparing for until an injury just shy of two weeks ago forced a late change.

On a stacked card, three other world title belts will be up for grabs, with Rolly Romero looking to defend his WBA super lightweight strap against Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz, Erislandy Lara putting his WBA middleweight championship on the line against Michael Zerafa, and Julio Cesar Martinez defending his WBC flyweight title against Angelino Cordova.

Tim Tszyu vs. Sebastian Fundora live results, updates

7:30pm PT: Main event up next but the undercard has been a showstopper so far. 

Official crowd at T-Mobile Arena is 14,726.

Isaac Cruz stops Rolly Romero in the eighth

That’s it! More of the same from Pitbull in that round as Romero’s resistance finally runs out. A left hand starts it before Cruz lands about four or five more clean shots to close the show. What a victory in front of an extremely partisan crowd in favour of the Mexican. Cruz takes the WBA super lightweight strap back to Mexico City.

Round 7: Huge round for Pitbull! For the second time in the fight, the end looked near for Rolly. Cruz landed multiple big shots, including a right hand as Romero bounced off the ropes but the champion somehow stays on his feet.

69-62 Cruz

Round 6: Another solid round from Rolly as Pitbull slows down ever so slightly. Romero bounces a few 1-2s off the Mexican but the pressure continues. Pitbull finishes strongly to just edge the round in our books.

59-54 Cruz

Round 5: Rolly’s best round of the fight up until he got a point taken away. It seemed harsh but Tom Taylor has clearly had enough of the holding from Romero’s end. Pitbull finishes strongly after the restart.

49-45 Cruz

Round 4: Another dominant round for the challenger as Romero struggles to deal with the pressure and power. Pitbull is able to tee off with hooks when he gets Rolly against the ropes and, more often than, not scores with hard shots. The punches Rolly lands don’t seem to make a dent in Pitbull.

40-36 Cruz

Round 3: A similar story in the third with Romero back peddling as Cruz hunts him around the ring. Rolly again finds the target with some counters but Cruz’s shots just seem to be doing more damage.

30-27 Cruz

Round 2: A more measured Cruz in the second but he’s still leading the dance and putting Romero on the back foot. Rolly looking to time him with counters on the way in and actually lands a couple but Cruz shakes them off. Cruz continues to press forward looking for that one punch to end it.

20-18 Cruz

Round 1: The bell rings and Pitbull charges at Rolly with bad intentions. Cruz swings wild hooks with both hands but Romero manages to make him miss for the first couple of minutes. Pitbull then finds the target with some hard shots to get Romero on wobbly legs. Rolly somehow stays on his feet as Cruz looks for the finishing shot but can’t find it.

10-9 Cruz

Erislandy Lara knocks Michael Zerafa out in the second round

Erislandy has retained his WBA middleweight title with a second-round knockout of Australia’s Michael Zerafa.

In the dying stages of the round which hadn’t seen much action, the southpaw bounced a 1-2 off Zerafa and down he went.

Zerafa struggled to his feet but was clearly unsteady and referee Allen Huggins waved it off.

Prior to the shot, the crowd, wound up by the action of the previous bout, had been booing at the lack of action from the pair.

Julio Cesar Martinez retains title in war with Angelino Cordova

113-113, 114-112 x2

Julio Cesar Martinez has retained his WBC flyweight world championship after a violent, action-packed brawl with Angelino Cordova.

Fought at a frantic pace from the opening bell, Cordova touched the canvas twice in the third round and the bout looked certain to end inside the distance but the Venezuelan fought back strongly.

Both men had highlights through the middle rounds as Martinez’s face began to show damage, before a head clash made it all the more worse after a cut opened up on his left eyebrow in the 10th.

The pace was unrelenting through the final bell, although Cordova may regret his tactics late on, appearing to avoid exchanging, believing he’d done enough.

Cordova’s reaction after the bell and as the cards were read out confirmed as much, but Martinez goes back to Mexico City a deserved winner, via majority decision.

Serhii Bohachuk outclasses Brian Mendoza on way to points victory

118-110, 117-111 x2

Ukraine’s Serhii Bohachuk has continued his rise up the rankings with unanimous decision victory over a gritty Brian Mendoza.

The fight followed a similar pattern to Mendoza’s bout with Tszyu last year, although Bohachuk arguably established his dominance earlier than the Aussie.

Mendoza, despite carrying what appeared to be facial fracture into the later rounds, remained dangerous and had a bright moment in the 11th but Bohachuk was able to take his best shots and return the favour back the other way.

In the end, it was a question of whether Bohachuk could drop or stop Mendoza, but “La Bala” was able to tough it out to the final bell.

Curmel Moton records UD victory over Anthony Cuba

80-72 x3

The 17-year-old protege of Floyd Mayweather maintained the perfect start to his professional career with an exciting points victory over the ultra-game Cuba.

Moton’s speed and class advantage was clear from the opening bell but no matter what the teenager threw at his opponent, Cuba kept on coming.

While he went to the judges for the first time, Moton looked every bit the superstar of the future he’s been billed as, giving Cuba his first loss in his 10th professional outing.
