Bundu fought Spence last August in the Italian’s second big American fight after two separate reigns as undefeated European champion – in 2014 he lost a one-sided but creditable decision to the excellent Keith Thurman in Las Vegas. That Thurman fight, in which a frustrated and wary Bundu was never really able to get close to his elusive but always coiled adversary, played a part in influencing how he approached the Spence fight. Determined not to let the rounds get away from him, Bundu put in a spirited effort against Spence and had the occasional success. Nonetheless he was outgunned and outworked in every round before being razed to the ground by a huge right hook in the sixth.
Reflecting on that fight, Bundu gave his thoughts on what Brook can expect when he gets into the ring with the touted Texan.
