Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr. proved he is just that as he was the first to knockout Leonard Bundu in six rounds on Sunday afternoon at the Ford Amphitheatre in Coney Island, New York. Spence Jr. improved to 21-0 (18 KOs) and was the first to knockout the crafty veteran Leonard Bundu by sending him onto the canvas and through the ropes.
From the get go, Bundu proved to be crafty and was game, applying pressure, despite losing every round. As the fight progressed, Errol Spence Jr. found his range, stayed composed and dug to the body as he continued to wear Bundu down. As the rounds went on, Spence really began to pour it on as he knocked Bundu’s mouth piece out in the 4th and sent him to the canvas with a left uppercut in the sixth. When Bundu got up Spence was like a shark that smelled blood and went in for the kill landing a left uppercut followed by a right hook to knock Bundu through the ropes.
Spence’s resume may be limited, but his last two performances have been impressive as he has been the first to stop both Chris Algieri and Leonard Bundu who have shared the ring with the likes of Manny Pacquiao, Amir Khan, Ruslan Provodnikov and Keith Thurman. Not only does he display excellent composure and range, but Spence Jr. has speed and power in both hands and looks like he is the real deal.
With the victory, Errol Spence Jr. becomes the mandatory challenger for Kell Brook’s IBF welterweight title. Following the victory Spence called out Kell Brook stating, “I want a shot at Kell Brook as soon as he’s finished with GGG. If Brook isn’t gonna fight me he needs to vacate.” It is a wonder if Kell will actually fight him, but one thing for certain is that Errol Spence Jr. will become a champion in the hot welterweight division.by
