Rising welterweight star Errol Spence made a big statement Sunday knocking out grizzled veteran Leonard Bundu in the 6th round of their bout which took place at the Ford Amphitheatre in Coney Island, NY.

With the impressive win, Spence has now moved in top position to challenge current IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook for his title.  Spence is now coming off of two very impressive knockout victories and is ready to challenge for a title. 

Bundu came out with steady pressure from the opening bell but it wasn't long before Spence began to land shots to the body and head effectively starting to break down his awkward opponent.

Rounds two and three saw Bundu trying to make the fight ugly but Spence stayed steady on his body attack thwarting any sort of steady progress for Bundu. 

Round four saw Spence hurting Bundu with a  big shot to the head prompting Bundu to get more aggressive but Spence was able to weather his attack and continue to lands shots which seemed to have a lot more on them as the round closed. 

In round five Spence was dialed and started to pull away from Bundu landing some great shots and clearly winning the round.

The sixth round saw Bundu going down on what was ruled a push. Spence wasted no time and moved in to close the show dropping Bundu with a big right hook prompting referee Johnny Callas to stop the fight without a count declaring the winner by knockout victory Errol Spence.
