Crawford vs. Fundora: Battle for the WBO Junior Middleweight Belt Heats Up

In a whirlwind of developments within the world of boxing, Terence Crawford finds himself in the spotlight once again, this time for a shot at the WBO junior middleweight belt. With former champion Tim Tszyu sidelined, the WBO has ordered a purse bid for a potential clash between Crawford and the newly crowned champion Sebastian Fundora.

The WBO has mandated a 20-day negotiating window between Fundora and Crawford, set to begin on Friday, April 5th. However, there’s a twist in the tale as Tszyu holds a rematch clause with Fundora, which could complicate matters. Promoter Sampson Lewkowicz has voiced his intentions to delay the rematch, citing the need to “maximize the money for Fundora“.

But there’s another contender in the mix – former unified welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. Fresh off placing his bid into the Fundora sweepstakes, Spence Jr. has thrown down the gauntlet, challenging the newly crowned champion. This adds another layer of intrigue to the already complex situation.

Opting to face Spence Jr. instead of Crawford could potentially lead to Fundora being stripped of the WBO belt. However, this may not deter Lewkowicz, who believes a fight with Spence Jr. holds more appeal due to his drawing power.

In response, Crawford has made it clear that Spence Jr. needs to get behind him if he wants a shot at the action. With tensions rising and stakes escalating, the question of who will ultimately fight for the belts will be answered by the end of this month.

Stay tuned as the drama unfolds in the world of boxing, with Crawford, Fundora, and Spence Jr. vying for supremacy in the ring.
