After Showtime left the boxing business, Premier Boxing Champions quickly found a home in Amazon Prime. The promotion starts its new deal with the streaming giant with Tim Tszyu vs. Keith Thurman on March 30. The non-title fight will emanate from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. 

Fundora, 26, was due to face Serhii Bohachukmost for the vacant WBC super welterweight title, meaning that belt will now also be on the line along with Tszyu’s WBO title.

The new bout presents a unique challenge for Tszyu (24-0, 17 KOs), with Fundora nicknamed the “Towering Inferno” due to his 197cm frame. That’s 22cm taller than Tsyzu and 26cm taller than Thurman.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Tim Tszyu vs Keith Thurman.
