Ocampo: I Have Nothing Lose, I'm Taking Errol Spence's Title!

IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence is set to defend his world title on Saturday in Dallas.

The card at The Star, headquarters of the NFL's Dallas Cowboys, features a battle of unbeaten fighters, hometown hero Spence, the International Boxing Federation champion at 23-0 with 20 knockouts, and Carlos Ocampo, 22-0 with 13 knockouts.

Southpaw Spence has not been taken the distance in four years, winning 10 stoppages in a row, including last year's knockout of Kell Brook before his home fans in Sheffield and January's stoppage of can Lamont Peterson in his most recent fight and first defending of the crown.

Spence hopes to fight the winner of the vacant World Boxing Council welterweight championship decider in August between Danny Garcia and Shawn Porter.

Ocampo, who stopped countryman Dario Ferman last November in his most recent start, fights outside his homeland for the first time in his first world title bout.

"I have nothing to lose. He has all the pressure of being in his hometown. I'm just relaxed and ready to fight," Ocampo said.
"I've studied his fights enough. What's most important is that I know that he has everything to lose and I don't. He has a home field advantage, but at the end of the day, it's just two guys in the ring. I've gotten a great reception from the people here in Dallas. I've been treated like a champion and after Saturday I'll be a world champion. You don't want to miss this fight.
"He can try to come and knock me out, but this is my dream. This is what I've trained my whole life for and I'm not going to let this chance pass me by. I'm going to use my height, distance and jab throughout the fight. The counter will be important for me. I'm going to look to catch him so he better be ready. I'm going to leave everything in the ring. I'm going to show what I have and give everyone a great performance from start to finish."
