Fundora got drunk with Ocampo, but defended the “half title”: video


Dignity Health Sports Park, Carson, California, USA. In the main event of the show, the “interim” WBC light middleweight champion (up to 69.9 kg) American Sebastian Fundora (20-0-1, 13 KOs) got wet with the Mexican ex-challenger Carlos Ocampo (34-2, 22 KOs).

Fundora effectively entered the ring – well, how not to support this?

Left-hander Fundora did not immediately get into infighting: jabbed, relied on superiority in anthropometry. It turned out well, but exacerbations are not enough. Fans are not waiting for this.

Ocampo tried to counter the favourite’s left straight. It turned out infrequently, since the “champion” is still boxing because of the jab. The challenger shot in the 3rd round, brought several left hooks to the target.

In the 4th round, Ocampo nevertheless “begged” Fundora for a fight in infighting. It looks like another fight has begun. The men gave out the cruelest mahach. The Mexican countered well, tried to work in combination, but physically it was very difficult for him to compete with the big guy. Favorite added branded uppercuts.

In the last seconds of the 6th three-minute period, Ocampo was seriously shaken, but recovered at half-time. The Mexican managed to make the appearance of a competitive duel due to workrate. But Fundora boxed more effectively. He also had a solid advantage in firepower.

Disappointed referee Jack Rees – began to threaten the Ocampo team that he would stop the fight, because he did not like the “body language” of the applicant.

Rice is bubbling. He tells the officials that the Ocampo team should be fined money – they spilled water on purpose, delaying the continuation of the fight.

In the meantime, Fundora decided to end the fight exactly the same way he started: control of pace and distance, a hard jab, constant displacements. The final 10 seconds of the fight ended with a mini-machache.

I wonder how the judges will consider the fight, because Ocampo reworked Fundora in many three-minutes. Official verdict: 117-111, 118-110 and 119-109 in favor of the favorite.

Fundora UD 12.

How do you score?..
