Sebastian Fundora vs. Carlos Ocampo – live results for tonight’s Showtime event

By Boxing News - 10/08/2022 - Comments

By Mark Eisner: WBC interim junior middleweight champion Sebastian ‘The Towering Inferno’ Fundora (20-0-1, 13 KOs) boxed his way to a 12 round unanimous decision over the surprisingly tough Carlos Ocampo (34-2, 22 KOs) on Saturday night at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.

The 6’6″ Fundora switched things up, electing to spend large portions of the fight jabbing from long range to take advantage of his long reach. However, that approach didn’t seem effective, as Ocampo landed the cleaner shots in the first six rounds.

Fundora went back to his normal brawling style in the seventh and got the better of the action the remainder of the way to defeat Ocampo.

The scores were 117-111, 118-110, and 119-110.

Undercard results:

  • WBC interim middleweight champion Carlos Adames (22-1, 17 KOs) obliterated former 160-lb world title challenger Juan Macias Montiel (23-6-2, 23 KOs) by a third round knockout. The two big punchers traded shots in the third round, with Adames getting the better of the action. The referee then stepped in and halted the contest after seeing Montiel was badly hurt and taking heavy punishment from Adames. While you can argue that Montiel should have been given more time to see if he could recover, the referee Ray Corona didn’t like what he saw. The time of the stoppage was at 2:37 of the third. With the victory, Adames is in a position to challenge WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo for his belt.
  • IBF super flyweight champion Fernando Martinez (15-0, 8 KO’s) retained his title by defeating former IBF 115-lb champion Jerwin Ancajas (33-3-2, 22 KO’s) by a 12 round unanimous decision. Martinez dominated the heavy-handed Ancajas the entire fight and had him out on his feet in the 12th round. The scores were 119-109, 118-110, and 118-110.
  • Big punching welterweight contender Egidijus Kavaliauskas (23-2-1, 18 KOs) easily beat an overmatched Mykal Fox (22-4, 5 KOs) by a one-sided 10 round unanimous decision. The scores were 99-89, 98-90, and 100-88. Kavaliauskas dropped Fox twice in the third round. He won every round in this writer’s view.
  • Featherweight Edward Vasquez (13-1, 3 KOs) won a narrow eight round unanimous decision over Viktor Slavinskyi (13-2-1, 6 KOs). The scores were 74-78, 77-75, and 79-73.
  • Women’s flyweight prospect Gabriela Fundora (9-0, 5KO) defeated Naomi Reyes (9-2, 5KO) by a 10 round unanimous decision. The scores were 99-91, 98-92, and 99-91. Gabriela is the sister of Sebastian Fundora.
  • Eumir Marcial (3-0, 2 KOs) beat Steven Pichardo (8-3-1, 2 KOs) by a six round unanimous decision. In the second round, Marcial suffered a cut from a clash of heads with Pichardo. The judges’ scores were 60-54, 60-54, and 60-54.
  • Junior middleweight prospect Brandon Lynch (12-1-1, 9KOs) defeated Roque Junco (11-13-1, 6KOs) by a third round knockout. Lynce knocked Junco down in the first.
  • Unbeaten middleweight Elijah Garcia (12-0, 10 KOs) destroyed Edgar Valenzuela (7-2, 6KO) by a first round knockout.
  • Lightweight Angel Rebollar (6-1, 3KO) outboxed Justin Cardona (8-1, 4KO), beating him by a six round majority decision.  The scores were 59-55 and 58-56 for Rebollar and 57-57.

Sebastian Fundora is taking a step down a notch from his difficult bout with Erickson Lubin last April, which saw ‘The Towering Inferno’ stopping him in the ninth round.

Tonight’s fight figures to be an early blowout for Fundora, with him likely stopping Ocampo within six rounds. It would have been nicer to see Fundora take on a quality contender like Tony Harrison, but fights like that aren’t easy to make.

Ocampo has only fought one elite-level opponent in his career, which ended badly for him in getting stopped in the first round by Errol Spence Jr in 2018. Since that loss, Ocampo has played it safe, fighting lesser opposition and winning his last eleven fights.

In the chief support bout, WBC interim middleweight champion Carlos Adames (21-1, 16 KO) defends against Juan Macias Montiel (23-5-2, 23 KO) in a fight that should be action-packed from start to finish.

Montiel gave WBC 160-lb champion Jermall Charlo all he could handle in June of last year.

Although Montiel lost by a wide 12 round unanimous decision, he had Charlo hurt several times, and he looked exhausted & rubber-legged during the championship rounds.

Montiel, 28, rebounded from that defeat to stop journeyman Christian Soto Valverde in the third round last December.

In other action on the televised portion of tonight’s Showtime Boxing card, IBF super flyweight champion Fernando Martinez (14-0, 8 KO) defends against former IBF 115-lb champ Jerwin Ancajas (33-2-2, 22 KOs) in the chief support bout.

Martinez defeated Ancajas by a wide 12 round decision last February. The two will now meet tonight in a rematch.

“Ready to go. We’re ready,” said Fundora to K.O. Artist Sports about his fight tonight against Ocampo. “He looks ready. He gave me a handshake. Proper sportsmanship.”

Sebastian ‘The Towering Inferno’ Fundora faces Carlos Ocampo tonight on Showtime Boxing at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California. Fundora (19-0-1, 13 KOs) will have his interim WBC junior middleweight title at stake against the upset-minded Ocampo (34-1, 22 KOs). The telecast begins at 10:00 p.m. ET.
