  Sebastian Fundora Training Camp Quotes

Unbeaten 154-pound contender Sebastin The Towering Inferno Fundora talks about reaching his peak as a fighter heading into his anticipated clash against Erickson Hammer Lubin as the two rising stars meet for the Interim WBC Super Welterweight Title headlining live on SHOWTIME Saturday, April 9 in a Premier Boxing Champions event from the Theater at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, part of Curio Collection by Hilton.

In discussing his most recent victory, a decision over previously unbeaten Sergio Garcia in December, Fundora declared that hes continued to improve since scoring that first 12-round victory of his young career.

I learned against Garcia that Im in great condition and that I can go into deep waters, said Fundora. I feel like Ive improved a lot during this camp. Its really everything. My boxing, my strength, my running and my overall conditioning is at a higher level. Everything is just peaking for me heading into this fight.

Despite a colossal standing at over six-foot-six, Fundora has historically had no problems making the 154 pound limit, and stated that hes actually been able to eat even more during this preparation.

Im eating a lot more this training camp, said Fundora. Its not like Im eating McDonalds every day, but I can eat what I want. Weve been eating a lot of protein. I feel like Im bulking but the weight isnt there. I feel strong.

After garnering attention for his eye-catching height early in his pro career, the 24-year-old Fundora faced a steadily improving string of opponents in his development leading up to this interim title opportunity. After taking on a Mexican slugger in Jorge Cota and an unbeaten European contender in Garcia during 2021, Fundora considers this opportunity against Lubin to have come at the right time in his career.

It feels great to be in this position, but its part of the plan, said Fundora. Were just going through with it. Ive got racehorse vision and Im making sure that Ill get the job done. Being in this fight shows that Im maturing. I first fought with PBC when I was 19-years-old and Im a much different fighter since then.

On April 9, Fundora steps up once again to face the 26-year-old Lubin, who is currently riding a six-fight winning streak. Lubin will seek to earn a second world title opportunity after losing to Jermell Charlo in 2017, while Fundora hopes to show his own championship-mettle against quality competition.

We know Lubin is a southpaw and that hes ranked number one by the WBC, said Fundora. Hes a good fighter overall. I expect him to come in and box, but Im really just focused on doing what I do best.

Known for his action style, Fundora promised to live up to his nickname and deliver heat when he steps into the ring on April 9.

Fans can expect me to bring action against Erickson Lubin, said Fundora. The Towering Inferno is bringing the fire on fight night.
