Eric Tudor (4-0) went the distance for the first time in his young career Saturday night against the battle tested Donte Stubbs. The fight was part of the Angel “Tito” Acosta versus Janiel Rivera undercard that took place in Indio, California.

The fight nearly didn’t happen when Stubbs weighed in a whopping 3.5 pounds over the contracted 154 pound super welterweight limit.

After consulting with his team, Tudor decided that the opportunity to fight on a DAZN streamed card was worth the risk of taking on an overweight opponent.

“We were very surprised by how much he was overweight but we didn’t want to waste a training camp. Golden Boy and DAZN gave us an opportunity and we wanted to make the most of it.,” said Tudor. “This was my first time going the distance and it was a good experience going 6 full rounds.”

Tudor won all six rounds on all three official scorecards and is looking to return to the ring in July.

The 20 year old Romanian Olympian made his pro debut in February when he stopped Dalton Duncan in 1 round.  He followed that impressive performance up with 2 more knockout victories before Saturday night.

If Tudor stays injury free, the plan is for him to fight at least 4 more times this year.
