FLASH QUOTES:

SPENCE:

“This is a tough challenge. If you know Lamont, you know he’s a tough fight but I came to dominate the division and it started with Kell Brook. I’m going to get Lamont Peterson and then I’m going to get the other welterweights that are out there.

“It’s definitely important not just to win the fight, but how I win the fight. I came to dominate the division and I came here to look good. I’m the future of the division and I’m the future of boxing.”

PETERSON:

“I wouldn’t say that Errol isn’t the bigger guy, I just believe that it doesn’t matter. It’s all about boxing skills.

“I think we’ll both make each other look pretty good, but I’m going to win.”

[QUOTE=Carpe uDiem;18420086]Peterson has a permanent sad face.[/QUOTE] Lmao. But nah this fight will be good while it last. It's gonna b hard Lamont coming on strong late like he usually does with Spence so strong and putting that bodywork in.

If Lamont shows heart and could take Spence's punches like he did Khan's, then it will be a long night for Errol. But that Khan fight was too long ago and Peterson may not have the same resiliency. We'll see.…
