Undefeated welterweight champion Errol "The Truth" Spence Jr. will defend his IBF world title in a Dallas homecoming Saturday, June 16 live on SHOWTIME at Ford Center at The Star in Frisco against unbeaten mandatory challenger Carlos Ocampo in an event presented by Premier Boxing Champions. It will be the first boxing event inside Ford Center and Spence's first hometown fight as world champion.

Spence, who will attempt to make the second defense of the world title he won last May from Kell Brook, combines explosive power with sublime boxing skill.

In his last four fights, Spence has begun to assert himself as the best boxer in the deep and talented 147-pound weight division.

Today, Spence is rated in the top-10 on boxing's coveted pound-for-pound list. Ocampo, who had a highly rated amateur career in Mexico, is also undefeated but will be facing his toughest challenge to date as a professional in his first world title fight.

"SHOWTIME has become home to the biggest stars in boxing and Errol Spence is one of its brightest," said Stephen Espinoza, President, Sports and Event Programming for SHOWTIME.

 "Spence made an emphatic statement one year ago when he traveled to Sheffield, England to wrest the title from the champion on his home turf. Now, a young and talented Carlos Ocampo has an opportunity to do the same. We are proud to team up with the Dallas Cowboys, Ford Center, TGB Promotions and Premier Boxing Champions to deliver yet another of boxing's must-see, marquee events."
