The card willl start at 10 p.m. ET on Showtime with the main event expected to begin at 11 p.m. ET.
Fundora (19-0-1, 13 KOs) comes into this fight at a massive -900 favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook and for good reason. The 24-year-old has stepped up his aggression recently as the competition has gotten tougher. He survived a 12-round slugfest with Sergio Garcia and has has knocked everyone else he’s faced over the past two years. Fundora is a unique specimen in the 154-pound class. He’s almost 6-foot-6 and that reach advantage plays a big part in his success.
Ocampo (34-1, 22 KOs) has won 12 straight fights to earn this opportunity. His last loss was a first-round knockout against top welterweight Errol Spence Jr. Since that loss Ocampo has feasted on a lot fo preliminary fighters. Ocampo is more of a gatekeeper than a legitimate contender at this point, despite his gaudy record. That explains why he is a +530 underdog on the moneyline.
