Spence Eyes Fight with Winner of Tszyu-Fundora, Hints at Weight Class Change

In his Twitter account, former welterweight (up to 66.67 kg) champion Errol Spence Jr. (28-1, 22 KOs) expressed his desire to fight the winner of the WBC and WBO super welterweight (up to 69.85 kg) title match between Tim Tszyu (24-0, 17 KOs) and Sebastian Fundora (20-1-1, 13 KOs).

The 34-year-old American posted a video featuring a scarred shark, referencing his nickname Big Fish and the fight against Crawford, with the caption: "Heading to Vegas. I want the winner of Tszyu-Fundora!"

Errol Spence hasn't boxed since last July, when he lost to Terence Crawford (40-0, 31 KOs) in a bout for the undisputed welterweight championship. Spence, who had never been downed, found himself on the canvas in the second round and twice more in the seventh. In the ninth round, the referee stopped the fight - TKO9.

After the match, Spence activated the rematch clause stipulated in the contract, but had to undergo eye surgery, which halted the negotiations.

The bout between Tim Tszyu and Sebastian Fundora is set for March 30th in Las Vegas, USA, with Terence Crawford also eyeing the winner.
