On Saturday night in Brooklyn, New York, former IBF welterweight champion Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr. dominated a very game Lamont Peterson, stopping the rugged former champion after the seventh round inside of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Aired on SHOWTIME, Spence (23-0, 20 KOs) was too skilled, too tough, and too busy and precise for Peterson (35-4-1, 17 KO’s), as he registered a successful first defense of his title.

Spence now sets his sights towards a hopeful showdown with WBA/WBC champion Keith “One Time” Thurman, but it remains to be seen whether we will see that fight anytime soon.

“Everybody knows I’ve been waiting on “Some Time” Thurman,” said Spence.. “Since I was 15-0 I’ve been calling this guy out and he keeps making excuses.  Let’s get it on. He has two of the belts and we both have big names. It’s an easy fight to make and I want it.”
