Petros Ananyan won an upset 10-round unanimous decision over previosuly undefeated knockout artist Subriel Matias in a junior welterweight bout.

In round seven, Ananyan landed some booming shots that hurt Matias and drove him back to the ropes. Matias seemed out on his feet and for some reason referee Robert Byrd administered an eight-count.

That was the difference in the fight as Matias won by scores of 96-93 and 95-94 twice for Ananyan, 142 lbs of Brooklyn, NY and is now 15-2-2. Matias, 142, Fajardo, PR is 15-1.

Deontay Wilder is a very slight betting favorite for tonight’s rematch with Tyson Fury, and unlike most big fights in boxing, this one is seen as pretty much dead-even with just hours to go before the main event.


That makes sense, of course, given that the two went to a draw — albeit an incredibly controversial draw — in their first meeting back in Dec. 2018.

The mean odds over various online books have Wilder at -123, with Fury at +104 for the rematch this evening.

The PPV undercard odds aren’t quite so even, but there is at least one interesting line that might have some people scrambling to throw some money down, which comes in the first of the three fights that will air before Wilder-Fury 2.

In that one, 6’5” junior middleweight prospect/project Sebastian Fundora is seen as the solid favorite over Australian ex-Olympian Daniel Lewis. Fundora is listed around -435, with Lewis at +335.

Otherwise, we’ve got Emanuel Navarrete (-3055) as an enormous favorite against Jeo Santisima (+1210) in their WBO junior featherweight title match, and Charles Martin (-475) as a strong favorite against Gerald Washington (+360) in their IBF heavyweight eliminator.

WORLDWIDEWilder Vs Fury II: Hoover DamnBy John Gatling
onFebruary 22, 2020



Hell hath no Fury like a woman scorned. In this case, that would be a “Big Mama” and a “*****” recovered from abject depression who’d ballooned in weight only to be rescued by a man who can’t get any Wilder.

Says he brought him back to life and then watched him rise from the dead. Talk about irons in the fire. Somehow, “Tyson” found a way to be inexorably linked to a WBC heavyweight champion of “Bomb Squad!” dimension, very much in need of an iconic rival to ignite his fame if not flame, while solidifying his place in boxing lore.

Legends are always synonymous with one name.

A tightly hooded and angry “Gypsy King” in dark Elvis Presley shades…



..shoved aside the notion that he is the Lineal heavyweight champion while outdoing Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller in making divisional pillars moonwalk.



During a suddenly heated and very tension filled eruption between the two men on Wednesday, courtesy of what seemed to be behind the scenes tension of monumental proportion, I’m now expecting a very short fight or a long and progressive slaughter between a very different iteration of a white Jack Johnson and a black Jack Dempsey on primo supplements. 2020 is now here, and with it comes the first Superfight of a new era of hidden promise and exposed lies.

If Superman was supposed to be hope, then Batman is a warning.

Wilder, boo’d badly on American desert soil by a British contingent content to exacerbate a dark disloyalty in favor of a traditionalist malcontent, would be the version ensconced in reincarnated all black. At 231 lbs of chiseled granite, the charred and fired up “Bronze Bomber” will be some 20 lbs heavier for a rematch of seismic proportion.

Unbeaten knockout artist and WBC Heavyweight World Champion Deontay "The Bronze Bomber" Wilder takes on undefeated Lineal Champion Tyson "The Gypsy King" Fury in a blockbuster rematch of their thrilling December 2018 showdown.

The first fight ended in a highly-controversial draw—but this time around, both fighters promise they won’t leave it up to the judges!

The co-main event features former Heavyweight World Champion Charles Martin taking on former title challenger Gerald "El Gallo Negro" Washington in a 12-round IBF Heavyweight Title Eliminator. Plus, WBO Junior Featherweight World Champion Emanuel "Vaquero" Navarrete, a.k.a. "The Mexican Iron Man" defends his title against Filipino contender Jeo Santisima, and Super Welterweight sensation Sebastian "The Towering Inferno" Fundora faces 2016 Australian Olympian Daniel Lewis in a 10-round PPV opener.

The Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury 2 pay-per-view undercard kicked off with a ten-round decision win for Sebastian Fundora (14-0-1, 9 KOs) over Australian Olympian Daniel Lewis (6-1, 4 KOs) in a junior middleweight contest. Of course, the intrigue surrounding this prospect vs. prospect matchup is the fact that Fundora is listed at 6’6” (or 6’5” depending on who your source is).


Fundora was bleeding through his nose in round two, as Lewis landed several clean power shots upstairs repeatedly. For some reason, Fundora wasted his height advantage by leaning forward and leaving himself open to be hit. Fundora had greater success when he fought from the outside, and that led to Lewis getting cut in the third round.

There was not a whole lot to separate these two through the first half of the contest. It would’ve been cool if the pay-per-view broadcast had decided not to split-screen the fight and Deontay Wilder walking through the arena, but alas this is what television watchers endured. Fundora really lacked anything resembling a jab and seldom threw or landed it. He was the far more active fighter in terms of volume, and he definitely landed more punches and the majority of the damaging blows in the closing stages. The scores were certainly wider than the fight suggested, though.

Official result: Sebastian Fundora def. Daniel Lewis by unanimous decision (97-93, 98-92, 99-91)

It’s evident that Fundora has a lot to learn and won’t be getting any major step up in competition any time soon. Lewis, who turned pro only a year ago, goes back to the drawing board after the first defeat of his young career.
