The Star in Frisco was rocking on Saturday night in anticipation of the DFW’s own Errol Spence Jr. returning home for an IBF Welterweight Championship match against the undefeated, Carlos Ocampo. Let’s just say Ocampo isn’t undefeated anymore…and it didn’t take long. Strap Season continues!
In front of a crowd of over 12,000 fans, Spence made quick work of Ocampo with a body blow knockout as the first round was coming to an end. The former DeSoto Eagle has now won his 24th straight match remaining undefeated and recorded his 11th knockout.
“I was a little disappointed.” said Spence. “I wanted to give the crowd their money’s worth. I wanted him to sustain a bit and give him some punishment, but the body shot got him and I dropped him.”

“When I came out and everyone was proud to see me fight made me feel so good. The support and love from the fans was amazing. Being a boxer in Dallas, it was a great event,” said Spence. He also stated he hopes to return back to the DFW for more bouts after unifying welterweight championships. Many are anticipating a future collision between Spence and current WBO welterweight champion, Terrence Crawford.
