Errol Spence Jr. vs Chris Algieri
Spence looked good in the first, controlling it. Algieri looked like Algieri always does. Nice boxer, but zero power.
Algieri is a punching bag. Spence hit him with a left hand and Algieri held on, taking a lot of punches. He was hanging on the ropes taking punishment. I’m not sure what Algieri was doing there.
Spence controlled this one too. He’s loading up on the left hand. Algieri keeps his hands high, so a lot of the punches land on the gloves, but they look impressive.
Spence put Algieri down with a left. Algieri was dazed and then took a knee. Late in the round, Algieri pulled Spence down and took a swing at him. He should’ve been docked for that.
Spence put him down twice in the round and it was stopped. During the first knockdown, Spence was holding behind his head and Algieri was off-balanced. Spence drilled him and Algieri went down oddly. He may have twisted his ankle. He finished him with a loaded up left. That one couldn’t have been fun.
Winner: Errol Spence Jr. by way of 5th round TKO
