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.

On Tuesday afternoon, Jan. 9, IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence hosted the media ahead of his Jan. 20 fight vs. former world champion Lamont Peterson. Working out inside of the R&R Boxing Gym in Dallas, Tex., Spence (22-0, 19 KO’s) looked sharp and in tremendous shape, with the match being less than a few weeks away.

Peterson (35-3-1, 17 KO’s) is a very experienced and worthy opponent, and any way you break the match down it figures to be entertaining. Spence vs. Peterson will be a Premier Boxing Champions telecast that will air live on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
