Errol Spence Jr., a relentless cyborg, stalked and slaughtered the ever-valiant Lamont Peterson in Saturday night’s Showtime main event, and now turns is attention to the rest of boxing’s glamour division.
The only question now: Who wants some?
Not me, says Shawn Porter, who notes that he’s unranked by the IBF. Not me, says Keith Thurman, who will take his time recovering from elbow surgery. Can Danny Garcia trust his counter-punching style against a punching machine-like Spence? Is 140-pound giant Terence Crawford ready for a 147-pound showdown people are already hyping as the next Fight of the Century?
Our expert analysts, Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti unpack Spence’s most-recent virtuoso performance and gaze into the welterweight crystal ball on this week’s show.
In our own main event, 1980s superstar Marlon Starling gives a rare, in-depth interview about his life, career, and welterweights past and present as this week’s featured guest.
In between, we get our weekly update on the UK boxing scene from British correspondent Paul McLaughlin, and an inside peek at the talented young boxing stable at Garcia Boxing, where sensational featherweight prospect Ruben Villa IV, tough super featherweight Joel Diaz Jr., and scrappy warrior Alan Sanchez are co-existing in Salinas, Calif.
