Errol Spence Jr will reportedly fight WBC light-middleweight champion Sebastian Fundora in October in Dallas, Texas.

He has remained inactive since his first defeat, in his undisputed welterweight title fight with Terence Crawford, in Las Vegas in July 2023. 

Fundora, meanwhile, unexpectedly defeated Tim Tszyu in the same city in March, immediately before Spence called him out. “It’s time to get it on,” the 34 year old said. “He got a pretty good height, but we’ll see. We’ll break him down like we always do.” 

Promoters Premier Boxing Champions hope to take Fundora-Spence to the AT&T Stadium, where Spence has previously defeated Mikey Garcia and Yordenis Ugas. The fight will be Spence’s first at 154lbs, after a lengthy period of speculation regarding him exercising his clause for a rematch with Crawford. 

It will also be his first since his separation from his long-term trainer Derrick James. Spence and James are suing each other in an attempt to settle a financial dispute.

Crawford, similarly, has chosen to move to 154lbs. He will fight Israil Madrimov for the WBA title on August 3 at the BMO Stadium in Los Angeles, on the same bill on which Tszyu – who lost his undefeated record to the 26-year-old Fundora – will fight Vergil Ortiz Jr.
