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.
