What’s Next?

Fundora is now the WBO and WBC champion in the super welterweight division. Terence Crawford (40-0, 31 KOs), having utilized his status as WBO “super champion,” has the right to challenge the champion of this version in the next weight category, which now includes Fundora.

However, another name has recently emerged – Errol Spence (28-1, 22 KOs). Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions, stated that for Spence to secure a fight with the winner of Tszyu vs. Fundora instead of Terence Crawford, all it would take is one phone call.
