On Saturday night, inside of the Ford Center at the Star in Frisco, Tex., undefeated IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. retained his title with a viscous and dominating 1st round knockout over mandatory challenger Carlos Ocampo. Spence (24-0, 21 KO’s) was heavily favored heading into the match for good reason vs. Ocampo (22-1, 13 KO’s), who he had little trouble dealing with.
Towards the end of the first round, Spence pinned Ocampo against the ropes and unloaded a series of punches, the last being a body shot that sent his overmatched foe to the ground for the count. And, just like that, Spence again delivered a star-turning performance.
