Errol Spence Wants To Become First To Knock Bundu Out

Welterweight rising star Errol Spence Jr. insists he’s fully focused on upcoming opponent Leonard Bundu with the lure of a shot at the IBF world title on the horizon. The fight is scheduled for August 21st.

Speaking on a pre-fight media call, ‘The Truth’ revealed: “Bundu is a real good fighter. He’s very crafty. Sometimes he switches from left hand to right-hand and he varies his punches, too.”

Spence wants to become the first to score a knockout over the vastly experienced Bundu (33-1-2, 12KOs), an Italian Olympian who is fast approaching his 42nd birthday.

“He’s been in a lot of fights and has a lot of good tools so I can’t look over him and if I look over him and end up not looking good and losing or whatever then I’m not fighting for the IBF title.”

The former U.S Olympian is in line to fight for the IBF world title, currently held by Kell Brook, should he come through his latest challenge and move to 21-0 in the process.

“I take one fight at a time. I’ll fight Bundu and then I’ll worry about the IBF. In the IBF, they’re real good at enforcing the rules so I’m not worried about that at all, so just one fight at a time.”

Now based in Texas but born in New York, Spence returns to his birthplace for his latest headlining show at the Coney Island Amphitheater in the borough of Brooklyn.

With an impressive 85% KO ratio on his resume, the unbeaten American is determined to look spectacular in the fight and follow his destructive win over Chris Algieri earlier this year.

“I’m a rising star and I want to look spectacular against him and get a knockout, the main goal is to win. That’s what I’m looking for. I’m not going to look for the knockout. If I can get the knockout, if it doesn’t just come naturally, then I’ll take the win but that’s the main goal overall, is to win.”

Let's hope Spence doesn't run like One Time did.

[QUOTE=Sledgeweather17;16937972]That's an invalid argument. Who do you think are the 8-12 ranked fighters in the other belt organisations?[/QUOTE] Don't upset him. He's cranky before an afternoon nap.

[QUOTE=Willy Wanker;16937603]Spence should press the fight and look for a knockout, but I hope he doesn't end up like one those young fighters who falls in love with his power too much. He's still a work in progress, but he…
