Errol Spence Jr. is a monster.

In a tremendous performance, the former Olympian outclassed veteran Leonard Bundu before knocking him unconscious in the sixth round.

Bundu (33-2-2, 12 KO) came out quite aggressively, but immediately found himself on the end of Spence’s jab. Spence (21-0, 18 KO) controlled range with it and repeatedly punished the body, most notably with his straight left, as Bundu tried valiantly to corral him.

Bundu landed a few decent shots, but Spence was well in control when he decided to go on the attack in the sixth. The American punished him on the ropes and in he corner before landing a vicious uppercut that sent Bundu to his back. Despite it not being called a knockdown, Bundu was in dire straits when he returned to his feet and his heroic last stand ended when a right hook behind the guard put him to sleep.

It’s a great win for Spence, who has now knocked out eight straight en route to becoming Kell Brook’s IBF mandatory challenger. No telling how this obligation will interact with Brook’s Golovkin adventure.
