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.
