Exciting welterweight contender Phil "The Italian Sensation" Lo Greco (26-1, 14 KOs) will face Errol "The Truth" Spence Jr. (16-0, 13 KOs) in the televised opener of Premier Boxing Champions on NBC on Saturday, June 20 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, with coverage beginning on NBC at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT.

A 2012 U.S. Olympian who had a highly decorated amateur career, the 25-year-old Spence Jr.will look to remain undefeated when he steps into the ring on Saturday night. The Desoto, Texas born fighter was dominant in his last performance on April 11 as he defeated Samuel Vargas by fifth-round knockout.

A four-time amateur national Canadian champion, the Toronto-born Lo Greco turned pro in 2006 and quickly made a name for himself as one of the top fighters from Canada. The 30-year-old also fought in Germany, Italy and Hungary before making his U.S. debut in 2012 by defeating Hector Orozco in Atlantic City. He racked up a 25-0 record to begin his career and most recently was dominant in defeating Rafael Cobos in March. Now he will look to make the most of this opportunity on Saturday night.
