Just over a week ago, at Bramall Lane, Sheffield, we saw Errol Spence Jnr live up to his hype.

The American defeated the IBF world welterweight champion, Kell Brook, with a clinical display to take the IBF crown back to the US.

Spence Jnr now has a record that reads 22-0 with 19 wins coming by knockout and is looking for the huge fights that now inevitably await him.

One such fight would be against the WBA / WBC champion Keith Thurman.

Thurman, who has a record of 28-0 with 22 wins coming by knockout, would be a formidable opponent and a unification fight between the two would be big box-office.

However, Spence Jnr is under no illusions as to who would win the fight, remarking to the media,

?Keith Thurman hasn?t fulfilled his full potential yet? When is he going to show it??

?He?s been a professional for 10 years now. I know I can beat Keith Thurman. I think physically, he?s not as strong as Kell Brook. I feel like Keith Thurman is small, 5?8?, 5?7?. I feel like we have the same speed. I feel like I?m in better shape than him. All around, I feel like I?m a better fighter than Keith Thurman. He does have power, but I have power too. I feel like everything is in my favor in that fight. I just feel like I?ll beat him.?

Let?s hope the fight gets signed and delivered, it would be an absolute cracker.
