Errol Spence Jr. remained undefeated and retained his welterweight title after stopping Carlos Ocampo in the very first round of their match-up, Saturday night at the Ford Center at The Star, Frisco.
Ocampo, 22-1, 13 KOs, was looking good at the opening bell as he was able to land combinations to the body of Spence. But as the fight went on the to the dying seconds of the first round, Spence landed a solid punch to the rib cage that put down Ocampo.
The challenger from Baja, Mexico was grimacing in pain and was not able to realize that the round was almost over. All he needed was to beat the mandatory count. But of course, the potent stopping power of a body shot is deadly. I mean, we saw a lot of fighters who were unable to get up. The pain is just too intense that it will take your breath and legs.
Spence improved his undefeated record to 24 wins, with 21 wins by stoppage. Spence was keen to fight the winner of Garcia-Porter fight.
