SPENCE ON NOT TAKING A TUNEUP FIGHT THIS FALL…

“I don’t need no tuneup nothing I’m a shark so put me in that deep water where I belong. That’s where I belong don’t put me anywhere in the pool.

THE LESSON HE LEARNED FROM HIS CAR ACCIDENT…

“Don’t take things for granted, at the time I was taking a lot of things for granted.  Slacking off on my training and basically not as focused as I use to be.
