Errol Spence chalked in another stellar win at the weekend with some now ranking him as one of the pound for pound best boxers in the sport of boxing today.
Last weekend’s win improved Spence’s record to 23-0-20KO as a professional.
Two weight world champion Lamont Peterson although had clearly trained ferociously for the fight, was up against a man who was just too good on the night.
He’s set himself up for a number of big fights since the weekend including the likes of Danny Garcia, Keith Thurman, Shawn Porter and Amir Khan.
He’ll be the main man in the pack though to watch out for – judging from recent performances.
Following the win the IBF welterweight world champion has evoked quite a bit of reaction in the fight community.
Here’s what people are saying at the moment:
Still laugh at Amir Khan saying he wants to clean a division out with @ErrolSpenceJr @budcrawford402 & @keithfthurmanjr included

Some lad saying Crawford and Thurman are levels above him ? said brook was beating Spence easy and only won because of injury and he gassed. He’s making out like Spence didn’t give him the injury ??. He’s bitter as fuck.

I don’t think he will fight any of those next . will probably be someone high in the ibf rankings.

Spence has a great chin and is a ring stalker but Crawford is very very special also.

Errol Spence would beat Canelo if he moved up 160 lbs #SpencePeterson
