Spence, 28, is already considered by many to be the best welterweight out there (23-0, 20 KO), and is coming off of a dominant win in January over Lamont Peterson.
“I believe that I’m the number one fighter in the welterweight division and I’ll step into the ring on June 16 with that feeling,” he said. “I’m going to draw from the energy of my fans. I’ve studied some of Ocampo and I can tell he likes to box but he’s willing to get into a fight. I know how he feels going into someone else’s hometown for his first shot at the title. This is his big opportunity and it’s going to make this a great event.”
Ocampo (22-0, 13 KO) is a 22-year-old prospect from Mexico taking a big step up in competition.
“I’m training very hard for my fight against Errol Spence Jr,” said Ocampo. “This is the opportunity that I’ve worked my whole life to get and I’m coming to take Spence’s belt on June 16. I will give the fans a very exciting fight and show once again what Mexican fighters are made of.”
