Errol Spence arrived on these shores with a reputation as having the potential to become a superstar in the world of boxing.

The manner in which Spence dismantled Kell Brook has given further credence to those claims.

Spence now has a record that reads 22-0 with 19 of those wins coming by way of stoppage.

The American has now ended his last 10 fights inside the distance and looks set to go on to have some huge fights with Keith Thurman and Manny Pacquiao being mentioned in the post-fight chit-chat, with Thurman being the holder of the WBA and WBC belts.

Talking to the media, in the immediate aftermath of claiming the IBF world welterweight belt, Spence had this to say,

‘I give Kell all the credit, and the hardcore fans here.

‘A true champion goes anywhere to fight. He has gone to America and fought so I came here.

‘I didn’t feel that sharp, but true champions still win.

‘He was tired, fatigued but kept firing shots. The goal is to unify and become undisputed welterweight champion of the world.’

And on the evidence of Saturday night it wouldn?t surprise me if the boxer who fought at the 2012 London Olympics achieved just that, how about you?
