Tim Tszyu’s cut and Sebastián Fundora’s broken nose turned a tough warrior fight red – La Opinion

The first to start bleeding profusely was Fundora after receiving a strong blow from his rival that broke his nose in the first round of the fight, but in the next it was Tszyu who – due to an involuntary elbow from the American – was bathed in red due to a cut on the top of his head.

Although Sebastián Fundora’s bleeding was also unpleasant, Tszyu’s was more worrying. Despite that, the former champion was able to convince referee Harvey Dock and the doctor that he could see to continue in the fight.

Fundora added the title of the World Boxing Organization (WBO) and retained that of the World Boxing Council (WBC).

“I thought to myself, ‘Hey, it’s a little sticky in here… I’ve been through things like that. Since I was eight years old, I had nosebleeds all the time. Blood isn’t crazy to me until it’s taken out of my arm. We fight on stage. “We are gladiators,” she expressed.
