Tim Tszyu will take on Sebastian Fundora in the main event of PBC’s first show on Amazon Prime Video as part of their new deal announced last year.

Tszyu had originally been scheduled to face two-time world champion Keith Thurman, who was forced to withdraw after suffering a bicep injury in training

The 154-pound title fight lands on Saturday, March 30 at the famous T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas

29-year-old Tszyu (24-0, 17 KOs) comes off a red-hot 2023 campaign that saw him elevated to world champion at 154 pounds while defeating former world champion Tony Harrison, top contender Brian Mendoza and former title challenger Carlos Ocampo.

Fundora (20-1-1, 13 KOs) lost his unbeaten streak in his last outing when he was knocked out by Brian Mendoza. Fundora showed his mettle in April 2022, battling the hard-hitting Erickson Lubin in an instant 2022 Fight of the Year contender.

Despite both men hitting the canvas, Fundora stood tall in the end, prompting Lubin’s corner to stop the fight at the end of the ninth round.

140-pound world champion Rolando “Rolly” Romero and Mexico’s Isaac “Pitbull” Cruz meet in the co-main event.

Romero (15-1, 13 KOs) rose to the ranks of world champion in his last outing, stopping Ismael Barroso in round nine to win the title in May.

It was the 28-year-old’s first return to the ring since a May 2022 defeat against three-division champion Gervonta Davis.

25-year-old Cruz (25-2-1, 17 KOs) has racked up three consecutive victories since dropping a competitive and entertaining decision against undefeated superstar Gervonta Davis in December 2021.

The reigning WBA Middleweight World Champion Erislandy Lara defends his belt against the No. 1 rated mandatory challenger Michael Zerafa.

Lara captured his WBA title with a first-round knockout of Thomas LaManna in May 2021, before KO’ing Gary O’Sullivan in May 2022.

Australia’s Zerafa (31-4, 19 KOs) has won four straight to earn the title fight since his 1-1 rivalry with Jeff Horn in their domestic affair.

The pay-per-view opener will see WBC Flyweight World Champion Julio César Martínez defending his world title against unbeaten contender Angelino Cordova

Trained by the renowned Eddy Reynoso, Martínez (20-2, 15 KOs) first captured his flyweight world title with a ninth-round stoppage of Cristofer Rosales in his stateside debut in December 2019.

The 29-year-old has gone on to defend the title five times, besting previously unbeaten opponents Jay Harris and Samuel Carmona, while most recently stopping Ronal Batista in May.

The 28-year-old Cordova (18-0-1, 12 KOs) earned a career-best victory in his last outing, as he bested former world champion Angel Acosta on his way to a 10-round unanimous decision victory last April.

Preceding the pay-per-view will be a two-fight PBC on Prime Video lineup beginning at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT, topped by rising middleweight Elijah García taking on contender Kyrone Davis in a 10-round attraction.
