Errol Spence Jr 147 lbs beat Chris Algieri 146 lbs by TKO at 0:48 in round 5 of 10

Time of stoppage: 0:48 of round five

  • Algieri down in round four and twice in round five. The first time was on his back. The second time Spence finished him on the ropes.
  • Spence down near the end of round four from a push or similar, ruled no knockdown. Algieri celebrated briefly. The round then ended.
  • Spence dominated the bout with jabs in center ring and won every round. Algieri moved well and tried to both land jabs and counter.
  • Algieri's game plan flaw was settling on the ropes at various times, giving Spence a free target, where Spence ultimately finished him.
  • Perhaps Algieri could have gotten up and continued, as he did numerous times against Manny Pacquiao. He was nine points down though.
