Ocampo went down for the count in the first round from some well-placed body blows.
But unless you enjoyed the hoopla from Texas and the Dallas Cowboys, you might think the fight wasn't worth staying up for.
Spence Jr. was decked out in stunning Cowboys garb and they had superstar Cowboy players hugging it out in a big show of Texas' affection. The affable Jerry Jones put himself in the picture but I wonder if the stadium spectacle overshadowed the purpose of the main event. It was a bit much, even for me, and I'm usually okay with over-the-top.
In the later interview with Jimmy Lennon, Spence Jr. said he was looking forward to the outcome of Shawn Porter v. Danny Garcia. The down side of it was that Spence vs. the Victor in that fight is not likely to occur until 2019, a disappointment for people who want to see Spence right now at the top of his game.
The young man is ready, has been ready, and I'd bet on him to end up on top of the division. All of which brings us to Terrence Crawford and the possibility of a classic as Crawford moved up to the weight class. Unfortunately, that's not likely to occur until late 2019 at the earliest. Both Crawford and Spence Jr. are boxer-punchers, with Spence Jr. having the heavier hands (imho). If boxing fans should be so lucky as to see that fight materialize, we'd be back into the boxing time-machine to the era of Sugar Ray Leonard-Marvin Hagler - Tommy Hearns. Or close to it.
