Image result for errol spence 2018IBF Welterweight World champion Errol Spence JR (23-0, 20 KO’s) will defend his title against mandatory challenger Carlos Ocampo (22-0, 13 KO’s).  The fight will take place in Dallas Texas on June 6th of 2018, but a specific venue has not yet been chosen.  Spence is coming of of a total wipe out victory over top welterweight contender Lamont Peterson, in a fight that looked super easy for Errol to get through.  Spence dominated the entire fight before ultimately getting a stoppage in the 7th round.  Aside for one nice rally that peterson had, which was a rest round for Spence, Spence was in complete control the entire fight.  If Spence was able to beat down a former champ and top 10 welterweight like Lamont Peterson like that, there is absolutely no telling what he will do to the less experienced Ocampo, come June 6th.

This is most definitely a nice fight for Spence, but more importantly one that he cannot avoid.  Carlos Ocampo is rated #1 by the IBF, which Errol Spence is a title holder in.  So that means that Spence must fight Ocampo (his mandatory challenger), or be stripped of the IBF Welterweight title.  There is little doubt that the IBF is known for bogus rankings among fighters.  This is not the first time that they have ranked a relatively unwon fighter at #1.  Ocampo is not even ranked n the top 10 by TheRing Magazine or ESPN.  So why if he ranked #1 by the IBF?  The WBC for instance has Ocampo ranked at #22, while the WBO has him ranked at #7.  The other thing is that Ocampo, while being undefeated, has never fought a top tier opponent.  The logical #1 for the IBF should be either Danny Garcia or Shawn Porter.

This is however a nice fight for Errol Spence JR.  It’s a great stop gap, while he waits until the end of the year for the fight he really wants, which is Keith Thurman.  Ocampo brings a nice undefeated record to the table, so on paper, it doesn’t look like a walk in the park for Spence.  Keith Thurman will have a come back fight sometime this summer after undergoing elbow surgery.  He has stated time and time again that he will not fight a top tier opponent in his first fight back since surgery.  For now, Spence has to deal with Ocampo however, so expect to see more of the same from the IBF champ.
