Errol Spence Jr: There might not be a lot of talking and bad blood between us, but you know that the two of us always give a great fight for the fans. I had to wait for my title defense and then I had a lot of guys not answer the call for this fight. I have a belt and I still have to call these other guys out. Lamont Peterson answered the call like a real fighter. In a perfect world, I’d be unifying with Keith Thurman this year. I’m going to fight three times this year though. You don’t get time back.

View From Ringside

By Terrell Groggins

Sonny Fredrickson knew he was in for a long night, his eyes seemed to say as I photographed him during the ring walk. For me, this could be a biased view since I’ve been documenting Shohjahon “Sho” during training camp. You know he’s tough when one of his sparring partners is Domonique Dolton. This is what makes Kronk such a special place to train, you never know who will be in the gym on any given day.Sho came out hungry from the start of the bell and jumped all over Sonny. He was consistent with power punches and movement up until referee Benjy Esteves stopped the fight in the third round. More
