The city of Dallas declared April 16 as “Errol Spence Day”. A recognition to the sports career of one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in boxing and who will challenge the World Boxing Association (WBA) super champion, Yordenis Ugás, this Saturday in Arlington, Texas.
The New York native has had a great professional career and owns the IBF and WBC belts, now he will seek a third in his difficult unification fight against the Cuban.
The mayor of the city, Eric Johnson, presented an award to the 32-year-old fighter and proclaimed April 16 as his day, a great occasion considering that this Saturday he will make his fight in Texas.
