American Errol Spence Jr. cleared all doubts about his physical condition last Saturday with his resounding victory by technical knockout in the tenth round over Cuban Yordenis Ugás, from whom he took the World Boxing Association (WBA) super championship belt and added it to his collection, which already had those of the WBC and IBF.

After about a year and a half without stepping into the ring and with many unknowns around him due to different injuries, Spence proved to be at one hundred percent and dispatched the Cuban under a great atmosphere at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Spence went from less to more in the fight, showed a good use of the jab and upper, besides showing a great power that ended up fracturing Ugas’ orbital.

The precision of the 32-year-old southpaw fighter was key to wear down the humanity of his opponent and as the rounds went by, he took control of the fight to delight the boxing world and win three welterweight belts. 

Spence has been very clear in his intentions and said that now he wants to fight Terence Crawford, the owner of the WBO belt, which is the last one left in his showcase. The winner of that hypothetical fight would become the undisputed champion of the category. 

While boxing fans are waiting for that fight to materialize, Spence remains the top fighter in the division and has proven that he is still one of the best after his performance this weekend.
