Thurman vs. Tszyu Fight Cancelled, Fundora to Replace Keith

Insiders Michael Benson and Mike Coppinger report that Tim Tszyu (24-0, 17 KOs) will now defend the WBO super welterweight world title (up to 69.8 kg) against Sebastian Fundora (20-1-1, 13 KOs), who steps in to replace Keith Thurman (30-1, 22 KOs).

Thurman sustained a bicep injury during training.

In the undercard of the Thurman vs. Tszyu fight, Fundora was originally scheduled to face Ukrainian Serhii Bohachuk (23-1, 23 KOs) for the vacant WBC super welterweight title. A new opponent for the Ukrainian is yet to be announced.

The event is set to take place on March 30th in Las Vegas, USA.
