The swing bout on the Tim Tszyu-Sebastian Fundora card will feature Mayweather Promotions 17-year-old blue-chip prospect Curmel Moton, as he will face Anthony Cuba (7-0-2, 3 KOs) on Saturday night, March 30th, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Amazon Prime Video has teamed up with PBC, and the duo is set to broadcast their inaugural pay-per-view card which features Tszyu vs Fundora. After the main event, many fight fans will remain in their seats to watch a dynamic featherweight prospect.

Curmel Moton met Floyd Mayweather Jr when he was 8-years-old, and since that initial meeting, Moton practically grew up in the Mayweather boxing gym. Moton is a young prodigy who has all the tools. He is a very mature fighter who has speed, power, counter-punching ability, footwork, and ring intelligence.

Moton had a spectacular amateur boxing career as he became an 18-time national champion. Back in September 2023, the 17-year-old decided to skip the Olympics and pursue his dream of becoming a professional boxer.

His pro journey started as the swing bout on the Canelo Alvarez vs Jermell Charlo card. Moton was scheduled to make his highly anticipated pro debut against the previously undefeated Ezequiel Flores.

In the opening round, Moton pressed forward using foot feints and throwing a fast sharp jab. He landed a big right followed by a left hand shot that sent Flores down to the canvas. Flores was able to get up, but seconds later, Moton landed a flurry of shots, which forced the referee to step in and put a halt to the contest.

Approximately two months later, Curmel Moton was back in action in a swing bout on the David Benavidez vs Demetrius Andrade card. Moton stopped the previously undefeated Hunter Turbyfill in the first round when he landed a vicious shot to the body.

Now, the highly touted featherweight prospect Curmel Moton (2-0, 2 KOs) is ready to step in the ring for a third time to participate in a third swing bout. He’s facing an opponent who is a two-time national champion, and he’s currently undefeated as a pro.

California native Anthony Cuba is an undefeated prospect who has an exceptional amateur pedigree. The 21-year-old is a promising young talent who trains with four-weight world champion Leo Santa Cruz.

Cuba has a zero in the loss column, but he has experienced a couple of close calls. Back in February 2021 Cuba fought to a majority draw against Diego Elizondo, and a year later his bout against Oscar Perez was scored as a split-decision draw.

After fighting to a draw against Perez, Anthony Cuba would return to the ring six months later and score a unanimous decision victory over Darel Harris. He would follow it up with two additional unanimous decision victories over Angel Rebollar and Angel Barrera.

Now Anthony “2 Quick” Cuba is ready to step up to the challenge of the very talented Curmel Moton. Cuba is confident in his skill set, and he believes on Saturday night at the T-Mobile Arena he will pull off the big upset.

Curmel “The Big Deal” Moton won both of his fights in impressive fashion. He entered the pro ranks with lofty expectations, and during a recent interview with Thaboxingvoice, Moton spoke about living up to the standard.

“Yeah, there’s definitely pressure, but I’m prepared for it, you know it comes with the sport,” Moton said. “You want to work hard, you want to be a big name, you got to expect the pressure and the attention. So, I like it; it makes me perform better, makes me want to work harder.”

On Saturday night, March 30th, the swing bout will feature two young, talented prospects. Anthony Cuba describes himself as a multi-style fighter and Curmel Moton doesn’t see himself as Money Mayweather, but he compares his fighting style to Pretty Boy Floyd.

Both prospects are highly skilled and they have a great deal of potential, but unfortunately one of them will experience a minor setback. On Saturday night Curmel Moton and Anthony Cuba will enter the ring as undefeated fighters, but at the conclusion of the contest, somebody’s 0 has got to go.
