As Sugar Ray Leonard once said, “Success is like a lady; dating to getting married, the thing that it took for you to get there in the first place are what will keep her. So stay on top of your game and don’t let up!
Given America’s best professional boxer has dominated his opponents with success since he joined welterweight division five years ago at age 25 (as well as winning two Olympic gold medals), this quote from boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard just might be one of many inspirational quotes or statements which have helped him along the way.
Spence’s career has been a clean sheet all through and round. He has had a total of 27 fight so far and which he’s won all 27. 21 of all 27 wins were by knock-out. Many combat fans see him as the best welterweight in the world. He became the IBF champion in 2017 after he defeated Kell Brook at Brook’s hometown in Sheffield and later became WBC champion in 2019 in a spectacular split decision over Shawn Porter
When the series of winning streaks in his career grew, he earned the title ‘The Truth.’ Spence was unfortunately involved in a car accident that had him hospitalized and in recovery before a contest with Danny Garcia. All this happened last December and retained the WBC and IBF championship belts. Does he boast over his 77.77% Knock Out ratio of his 21KOs in 27 wins to reassure his combat fans to continue the streak?
Spence now faces a challenging assignment that will continue to define his career. Such a high-profile match against ‘Pacman’ is a highlight in the career of this elite boxer. In his prime, there’s the yearning to maintain his winning streak but caution against the legend’s age belaying him should be highly observed.
Spence will be coming forth with his titles, the WBC and the IBF, as the legendary ‘Pacman’ strolls in. This undaunted challenge will see Spence’s ‘truth’ rise higher or fall in the history of professional world boxing. As such, the challenge is accepted for the 21st August 2021, Las Vegas!
