CompuBox: Spence Landed 49% of Power Punches on Peterson

By CompuBox

All IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence, who landed 161 punches, while Lamont Peterson threw 158 punches.  45 of Spence’s 138 landed power shots were to the body of Peterson. 

Spence landed 35 power punches in round five- the most by a Peterson opponent in 18 of his fights tracked by CompuBox.  Spence landed an average of 25 of 79 punches in rounds two through seven.

Errol Spence Jr. was even more dazzling in defending his title than he was while winning it.

Spence battered Lamont Peterson until the fight was stopped a second into the eighth round Saturday night in the first defense of the welterweight title he won last year.

Spence had controlled the fight and both of Peterson's eyes appeared swollen as doctors checked him after the seventh round. The bell rang to start the eighth, and Peterson moved toward the center of the ring before his corner told the referee to call it.

Spence (23-0, 20 KOs) pitched a shutout in his first attempt defending the IBF 147-pound crown he won last May when he went to Sheffield, England, and stopped Kell Brook in his hometown, breaking the champion's orbital bone and knocking him down in the 10th round before Brook went to a knee in the 11th and the fight was stopped.

Spence won every round on all three scorecards in a performance that easily backed up the accolades he earned in his title-winning victory.

He knocked Peterson (35-4-1) down in the fifth and hurt him in many other rounds, ripping punches into his ribs to set up hard shots to the head.

Spence landed more punches (161) than Peterson threw (158) according to final CompuBox stats and connected with over 100 more power punches — landing 35 alone in the fifth round.

Spence confidently threw his jab to get warmed up in the first, and then hurt Peterson with a body shot along the ropes in the second. They traded hard shots in the third with Spence continuing to go to the body and Peterson getting him upstairs.

[QUOTE=GhostofDempsey;18424923]Easy to land when your opponent stands right in front of you and doesn't throw much in return. Good win for Spence, but hopefully he fights twice more like he says in 2018 and it will be agaisnt a live…

[QUOTE=BoxingTech718;18424557]It was an old school beating. Peterson had heart and wanted to keep going but his trainer wisely saved him. Spence should aim for the Crawford/Horn winner because Thurman ain’t trying to take any hard fights off the injury.[/QUOTE] ???…

He was non-stop throwing punches and looked as fresh as the opening bell. Amazing stamina. Compubox is totally useless for landed punches BTW.
