Boxing champ trades punches with much larger man until one of them quits

Friday, September 15, 2017

Have you ever wanted to see how a current world champion boxer would handle himself in a street fight? Then this is the video for you!

The boxer in question in this video is current IBF welterweight (147lbs) champion Errol Spence Jr, who holds a professional record of 22-0, with 19 of those victories have come by way of T/KO.

On his way to winning the title, Spence defeated the likes of Conor McGregor’s former sparring partner Chris Van Heerden, Samuel Vargas and Chris Algieri, all inside the distance.

However, the 27-year-old’s biggest triumph to date was undoubtedly his 11th round stoppage of Kell Brook back in May of this year to win the title.

Given that brutal body work was part of Spence’s key to success that night, ‘The Truth’ seems like the last person you would want to engage in a game of ‘to the body’ with on the streets, but apparently, his opponent in this video still thought he could take him.

In all fairness, the unnamed man did have a big size advantage over the boxing star, outweighing him by a considerable margin, but when it came to actual skill and technique there was no comparison between the two.

In this good-natured scrap, we saw Spence repeatedly rip into the man’s body with pinpoint accurate left and right hands, while his opponent attempted to return fire, often resulting in failure as this master of ‘the sweet science’ saw his shots coming and was able to block them accordingly.

The man’s thick midsection helped him absorb some of the initial blows, but in the end, a hard right hand from Spence took the wind right out of his sails and left him wincing as he wisely bid a hasty retreat.

Other bystanders then laughed and teased the big man, who quietly grumbled about being tired as he tried to catch his breath and salvage his pride.
