Errol Spence-Alejandro Barrera on November 28, PBC

DALLAS - Super welterweight world champion Jermall Charlo (22-0, 17 KOs) will defend his title in his home state against "Silky" Wilky Campfort (21-1, 12 KOs) as Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on NBC comes to The Bomb Factory in Dallas Saturday, November 28.  Televised coverage begins at 3 p.m. ET/12 p.m. PT. 
 
Also featured, Dallas-native and 2012 Olympian Errol "The Truth" Spence Jr. (18-0, 15 KOs) takes on Mexico's Alejandro "El Elegido" Barrera (28-2, 18 KOs) in a 12-round contest.
 
"I haven't stepped out of the gym since I won the title," said Charlo. "You get the title, you defend it. That's the motto. I know Campfort is hungry and at the top of his game, but I've been training just as hard, if not harder, to defend my title. It took everything I have to get here and it's going to take everything I have to remain here."
 
"I am ready to fight," said Campfort. "I am not in this business to run. I'm not afraif of anybody. I'm coming to win a world title and achieve my dream. Charlo better not underestimate me, because I have only victory on my mind."
 
"I'm excited for another opportunity to prove that I'm the real deal and I'm ready for any gut that's put in front of me," said Spence Jr. "This will be my first time fighting in my hometown and I'm ready to put on a show for Dallas. November 28, it's going to be another man down."
 
"This is a great opportunity to showcase my skills on a big stage," said Barrera. "I am always in great shape and I plan on giving the fans a great fight. November 28 I will announce myself to the world with a great performance."
 
The November 28 event features two rising stars in the sport, both from Texas as they showcase their skills on Thanksgiving weekend. The undefeated Charlo will be defending his world title for the first time while the undefeated Spence Jr. looks to make another impressive statement in his young career that has many calling him a future world champion.

A newly crowned champion at 24-years-old, Charlo grabbed his title with a dominant third-round stoppage of Cornelius Bundrage in September. Residing in Houston, Charlo fights in his home state for the first time since a 2013 stoppage of Orlando Lora. Charlo built up his resume in 2014 with dominant victories over Hector Munoz, Norberto Gonzalez and Lenny Bottai before shutting out Michael Finney in March leading up to his world title fight.
 
Born in Haiti but fighting out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Campfort has not lost since his second pro fight in 2009. The 30-year-old has fought professionally in the U.S., Cayman Islands, Dominican Republic and his native-Haiti. He's won six fights since the beginning of 2014 including stoppages of Milton Nunez and Devon Moncrieffe. In his last contest he stopped Ronald Montes in the second round on September 18.
 
A member of the 2012 U.S. Olympic team who boasted a highly decorated amateur career, the 25-year-old Spence Jr.will look to put on a show in front of his hometown Dallas crowd. Spence Jr. is widely regarded as one of the top rising prospects in the sport and was dominant in his PBC debut on April 11 as he defeated Samuel Vargas by fourth-round knockout and he followed that up by stopping Phil Lo Greco in the third round on June 20. Most recently, Spence Jr. recorded a flawless performance in his win over South African Chris van Heerden with an eighth-round stoppage on September 11.
 
Fighting out of Monterrey, Mexico, Barrera will be fighting in the U.S. for the second time in his career after picking up a victory over John Mackey in 2012. The 29-year-old won his first 20 bouts after turning pro in 2007 and enters this fight with three straight victories including triumphs over Juan Montiel and Jose De Jesus Macias in 2015.
