Spence too strong for Lo Greco; Gausha, Easter and Hunter win

Errol Spence Jr lived up to expectations as the welterweight up and comer became the first fighter to stop tough Canadian Phil Lo Greco in Las Vegas.

The 25 year-old was on top from the word go and began sitting down on his punches towards the end of the first round. Lo Greco had taken the fight at short notice just days before and proved to be no match for Spence who took him out in round three with some crunching blows.

With the win, which is the best of his career so far, Spence heads to 17-0 with a 14th stoppage.


Terrell Gausha dropped Luis Grajeda in the third round on his way to a comprehensive points win to take his record to 15-0. Scores came back 79-72 (twice) and 78-73 after eight rounds of action as the middleweight continues his steady progress.

Super light weight Robert Easter and cruiserweight Michael Hunter both recorded early knockouts on the MGM Grand bill, whilst super middleweight Kevin ‘The Second Coming’ Newman made it three wins on the spin by taking every round of four from Bobby McIntyre on all three judges scorecards. Added to his debut draw, 23 year-old Newman is now 3-0-1 as a pro.
