This video shows world champion professional boxer Errol Spence bare knuckle sparring a heavyweight outside the ring.

One of boxing’s brightest new stars was risking hand injuries by the looks of this in a bare knuckle sparring match with a much larger foe, where punches were limited to one another’s bodies.

Even still, such a talented professional boxer risking his hands like that no doubt angered his trainer and the rest of his team in real prize fighting – pro boxing.

A user on Streamable uploaded the video which shows the Errol Spence bare knuckle body spar:

No doubt Spence’s manager and adviser Al Haymon will not be too happy to see one of his best fighters engaging in this outside of the ring.

Spence’s last fight in the ring came via a sensational stoppage win over the UK’s Kell Brook back in May in an outdoor event in Sheffield.

He stopped Brook inside the distance in Brook’s hometown.

In it is not known who Texas native Spence will face next, but it is thought that unification fights in the welterweight division could very well be in play.

Notably against fellow American Keith ‘One Time’ Thurman.

Spence’s current professional record inside the ring stands at 22-0-19KO.
