LAS VEGAS: Sebastian Fundora will return to the ring in the coming months.

That's according to the super welterweight's promoter Sampson Lewkowicz, who confirmed to ProBox TV that the fighter's comeback — after his upset knockout loss to Brian Mendoza — will take place in January, 2024.

"God willing he's back in late January," Lewkowicz told ProBox TV.

Fundora was emerging as a legitimate threat in the 154-pound division in the modern era, particularly after a Fight of the Year nominee against Erickson Lubin in 2022, in which he prevailed by ninth round retirement.

'The Towering Inferno,' 25, fought once more that year when he comfortably out-pointed Carlos Ocampo.

However, disaster struck in 2023 when Mendoza routed Fundora and inflicted the first loss of his career, finishing him in seven.

Fundora has been seen in the ring since as he supported his sister Gabriela Fundora's impressive charge to the IBF world flyweight title last month when she thumped Arely Mucino to smithereens in the fifth round.

Now, though, it's Sebastian's time to fight.
