What’s Next for Errol Spence Jr. after Beating Kell Brook?
I may or may not be an expert. I’ll let you decide, but I am a long Time fan with an informed and knowledgeable opinion.
Coming off his 11th round stoppage win over Kell Brook on May 27th 2017 in Sheffield
England, to win the IBF Welterweight Championship. What is next for Errol Spence Jr?
I know a lot of people are clamoring for an Errol Spence vs. Keith Thurman fight. Matching up the two welterweights that a lot of people fell are the two best in the world. I don’t think Spence’s next fight is going to be against Thurman. However, Thurman’s (who is out with an injury) next fight could be against Spence.
So Who’s next? When a championship changes hands. There is always the possibility of a rematch. However suffering from his second orbital bone break in as many fights. Brook is going to need some time off. If he fights again. The IBF ranks Carlos Ocampo and Konstantin Ponomarev at #3 & #4 as the top two contenders. Spence and Ponomarev were supposed to face each other, but PBC vs. Top Rank issues got in the way. I think it is going to come down to two PBC promoted boxers. Shawn Porter who is coming off a 9th round stoppage over Andre Berto or Lamont Peterson who won a share of the WBA championship winning a decision over David Avanesyan. I don’t think Danny Garcia who is coming off a loss is going to be next.
