Adrien Granados (last 4 fights) threw nearly 20 more punches per round than the 140-lb avg. RED FLAG: opponents landed 43.9% of their power shots, third highest among active championship caliber fighters.

STEPHEN ESPINOZA, President Sports & Events Programming, Showtime Network Inc.
"Errol Spence Jr. is a consensus top five pound-for-pound fighter. He's knocked out 10 straight fighters and it was 2014 when an opponent last went the distance. Errol is in many ways our Dak Prescott (Dallas Cowboys quarterback), he's a young star, a fan favorite and we expect him to be one of the faces of the sport for years to come.
"If you know of the tradition of Mexican fighters in this sport, then you know that Carlos Ocampo cannot be overlooked. He's coming to win and that makes him very dangerous and should create an exciting fight. Both of the opening bouts leading up to the main event on SHOWTIME are significant bouts with fighters that bring all action styles to the ring."
