Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr. (21-0, 18 KOs) is still ascending, but his talent far outweighs his status at this point in his career. That’s precisely why most fighters prefer avoiding him, if possible.
He annihilated Leonard Bundu in his last fight, something Thurman couldn’t do. He destroyed Chris Algieri the fight before that, something Manny Pacquiao and Amir Khan failed to do before him.
Spence appears set to take on IBF welterweight titleholder Kell Brook in May, and an impressive win vaults him onto everyone’s radar. Brook has only lost once, to Golovkin at middleweight in a fight he had no business taking.
For his part, Spence very matter-of-factly tells FightHype he’d stop Thurman (video above). I’d agree. If Spence can avoid getting hit with sweeping shots, he’ll stop “One Time” inside nine.
