IBF Welterweight Championship: Errol Spence Jr. vs Carlos Ocampo
Undefeated welterweight champion, Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr. will defend his IBF world title in a Dallas homecoming against unbeaten mandatory challenger, Carlos Ocampo, in an event presented by Premier Boxing Champions. It will be the first boxing event inside Ford Center and Spence’s first hometown fight as world champion.
Spence, who will attempt to make the second defense of the world title he won last May from Kell Brook, combines explosive power with sublime boxing skill. In his last four fights, Spence has begun to assert himself as the best boxer in the deep and talented 147-pound weight division. Today, Spence is rated in the top-10 on boxing’s coveted pound-for-pound list. Ocampo, who had a highly rated amateur career in Mexico, is also undefeated but will be facing his toughest challenge to date as a professional in his first world title fight.
