Two-time world champion Keith Thurman duels rising star and reigning world champion Tim Tszyu in the main event of PBC’s first show on Amazon Prime Video as part of their new deal announced last year.

The 155-pound catchweight clash lands Saturday, March 30 at the famous T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Thurman vs Tszyu will be a PBC PPV available on Prime Video in addition to other cable and satellite outlets in the US with a price point to be confirmed. International television is yet to be decided.

Florida’s Thurman (30-1, 22 KOs) earned his “One Time” moniker by talking the talk and delivering with highlight-reel KOs. He has assembled one of the most impressive resumes among the top welterweights of this generation, having defeated former champions Shawn Porter, Danny Garcia and Robert Guerrero.

Thurman’s only blemish came in a 2019 Fight of the Year against boxing legend Manny Pacquiao, with Thurman ending up on the wrong side of a narrow split decision.

Most recently, Thurman bested former world champion and current highly ranked welterweight Mario Barrios by a unanimous decision in February 2022.

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.

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.

All-action super welterweight Sebastian Fundora will meet streaking contender Serhii Bohachuk in the pay-per-view opener.

Fundora (20-1-1, 13 KOs) was on the wrong side of a shocking upset and knockout, losing his unbeaten streak at the hands of Brian Mendoza last year.

A 28-year-old from Ukraine, Bohachuk (23-1, 23 KOs) has won five straight outings, including 2023 stoppages of Nathaniel Gallimore and Patrick Allotey. This run has come after a defeat to Brandon Adams in March 2021.
