Who will Errol Spence Jr. face next?
The talented 28-year-old welterweight sits on top of the IBF's 147 pound division rankings, and holds a major title in a weight class that is crowded with some of boxing's biggest names and talent. Keith Thurman (28-0, 22 KOs) holds the WBC and WBA titles in this weight class, while Jeff Horn (18-0-1, 12 KOs) holds the WBO World Welterweight Title. Keith Thurman is coming off of a March 4th victory over former champion, Danny Garcia (33-1, 19 KOs). Jeff Horn is scheduled to make his second title defense on April 14th against super lightweight boxing star, Terence Crawford (32-0, 23 KOs).
Bad Left Hook recently reported that Spence wants to fight Thurman in 2018. However, it is likely that Thurman will schedule a tune up fight before agreeing to a showdown against the IBF champ. Before a bout can be scheduled between Spence and Thurman, Spence may have to defend his title against other highly ranked, IBF welterweights, such as Carlos Ocampo (22-0, 13 KOs) and Konstantin Ponomarev (32-0, 13 KOs).
