This kid is class all the way. Put him down as a future welterweight champion.

Future mega-buck matchup: Errol Spence vs. Shawn Porter.

Dude should and probably will definitely grab one of those alphabet-sanctioning commission belts. Buts against “Showtime” Shawn, he melts. Holla!

He is the cream of that Olympic class

Spence impressively out classed a very good fighter last Friday in Ronald Cruz. I do agree that he is the best of the US Olympic class of 2012

To me, what was most impressive was the fact that Spence stood in the pocket in front of Cruz and landed combinations while avoiding anything Cruz threw back. It was the sweet science at its best.

No doubt in my mind that Spence is ready for a step up again his next time out. Kermit Cintron, who beat Cruz in March, would be a good opponent for Spence or also Pablo Cesar Cano would be another one. I think Spence is ready for this mild jump up and with his amateur background we could see him moved fairly quickly going forward and positioned to fight for a belt in 12-18 months or so.

As for Porter, that fight is definitely possible down the line. Maybe not at 147 but at 154 as both fighters mature. With the styles of both men, it would certainly be one that is not to be missed.
