Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr. is a rising star in the 147-pound division, making quick work of most of his opponents. A U.S. Olympian in 2012, the unbeaten southpaw began boxing at age 15 under his father’s guidance. Spence may not have a ton of ring experience yet, but you can’t entirely blame him—that’s just what happens when you stop most of your opponents in the early rounds. That’s been a good problem for Spence so far in his professional career, as the Desoto, Texas, resident has only had to go the distance three times in maintaining a perfect record.
The southpaw packs a lot of power, and has shown a real knack for inflicting early damage and then pouncing, putting his opponents away before some fans have even taken their seats. He won the International Amateur Boxing Association world championship in 2008, and then captured the U.S. National Amateur championship three straight years (2009-11). He won the 147-pound title at the 2012 U.S. Olympic trials before losing in the quarterfinals at the London Games. Spence showed his knockout ability in his professional debut in November 2012, finishing off Jonathan Garcia in the third round. He then KO’d six of his next seven opponents, five of them in the first round. That’s not to say that Spence can’t last, however. Ronald Cruz went the distance with Spence in Las Vegas in June 2014, but the former Olympian didn’t lose a round and won the 10-round bout by unanimous decision.
Most recently Spence has impressive early round finishes of Chris Algieri and Leonard Bundo both of whom had previously never been finished. He will now look to take the 147lb title in his next bout!
