Moments ago, inside of the Bramall Lane Football Ground in Sheffield, England, Errol Spence Jr. successfully captured the IBF welterweight title with an impressive 11th-round TKO over former champion and hometown London favorite Kell Brook.

The bout, fought in front of a packed house of rabid supporters, was fought at a tense and tactical pace early on. Brook (36-2, 25 KO’s) was on his way towards building a lead through the first half of the fight and appeared to be the physically stronger fighter, but Spence (22-0, 19 KO’s) was undaunted in his pursuit.

Promoter Lou Dibella feels that Kell Brook wants ‘no piece’ of Errol Spence Jr.

On Saturday night, April 16, inside of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, undefeated welterweight contender Errol Spence Jr. scored the biggest and perhaps the most electrifying victory of his career in stopping former champion Chris Algieri in the fifth.

Spence (20-0, 17 KO’s) was simply to precise and powerful for Algieri (21-3, 8 KO’s), who never could get into the fight. Spence dropped Algieri in the fourth and twice in the fifth before referee Benjy Esteves Jr. waived the contest off.

On Saturday night, June 20, welterweight star Errol Spence continued to stamp himself as one of the division’s emerging contenders with a one-sided 3rd round TKO over Phil Lo Greco inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Now 17-0 with 14 knockouts as his career continues to push forward, Spence is on the verge of a big fight anytime now as was actually in line for his biggest test to date against Roberto Garcia before the Weslaco, Tex. native withdrew just days prior to the match due to personal reasons.

Good to see undefeated welterweight hopeful Errol Spence Jr. get a chance to still fight on this weekend after seeing his fight with Roberto Garcia fall apart earlier this week when it was revealed that the Weslaco, Tex. native was pulling out for personal reasons.

Spence (16-0, 13 KO’s) was looking at the Garcia fight as his chance to break out and he will instead have to settle for a matchup vs. brash Phil Lo Greco, who stepped in at the last minute.

2012 U.S. Olympian and present-day welterweight/junior middleweight prospect Errol Spence Jr. (6-0, 5 KO’s) saw his name thrust into the spotlight this past April when it was revealed that he had temporarily relocated to Las Vegas to serve as a sparring partner for Floyd Mayweather ahead of his dominant victory over Robert Guerrero.

Having gone chest to chest with Mayweather for some lively sessions, Spence knows all too well of all the tricks and guile that the 36-year old future Hall-of-Famer possesses, and he has little doubt that Floyd will find a way to emerge victorious in his next assignment, a September 14th clash with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez at the MGM Grand.

“I think Floyd is going to outpoint him,” Spence told me recently. “I think Floyd is too quick for him, too smart, too fast. I don’t think Canelo has a high enough work rate. I just think he’s going to outpoint him.”
