Sebastian Fundora: 154 is Stacked - I'll Be Ready For Anyone!

Super welterweight sensation Sebastian "The Towering Inferno" Fundora (16-0-1, 11 KOs) delivered a dominating second round TKO of former title challenger Habib Ahmed (27-2-1, 18 KOs) in their WBA super welterweight title eliminator at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Ahmed, who spent nearly his entire career at 168-pounds, had previously gone six rounds with then WBO super middleweight champion Gilberto Ramirez.

"He's tall and he's a good boxer," said Ahmed. "I didn't start working fast enough and he started working immediately. That's why he got me with the uppercut in round one. That messed up my rhythm. I was surprised he came out so fast."

Fundora was in control from the outset, stunning Ahmed in the early moments of round one with a left uppercut from his intimidating six-foot six-inch frame. Ahmed was able to make it through a rocky first round, but encountered similar problems in round two.
 
"We saw him buckle in the first round," said Fundora. "I heard my dad yell from the corner that he was shaken. I knew he couldn't take the power, so I decided to walk right through him."
 
Early in the second round, Fundora pushed Ahmed to the ropes and began unloading with power punches, receiving no return fire from Ahmed. In the second round, Fundora managed to land 30 power punches in total before the fight was officially waived off by referee Laurence Cole 1:30 into the round.
 
"We just fought in an eliminator, so I'm pretty sure I'm high up in the rankings now," said Fundora. "We'll go back and talk about what's next with my team. I may take a week off and enjoy the holidays, then come back strong with whatever is next. I want to fight anyone. The 154-pound division is stacked, so I'll be ready for anyone."

Fundora is not ready for the top dogs yet. He’ll get hurt fighting against Charlo. Would like to see him against Hurd. That would be an exciting matchup.

This guy is a giant, looks like he could bulk up and campaign at the bigger weights
