THESE days, few rising stars in the sport of boxing are shining brighter than Errol Spence Jr. (20-0, 17 KOs). The 26-ear-old former Olympian is unbeaten in 20 fights and is blasting through the welterweight rankings.

He has knocked out his last seven opponents and is being pegged by some as a potential heir to the welterweight throne long-held by Floyd Mayweather Jr.

On Sunday, in Brooklyn, New York, he will be competing in an IBF title eliminator against veteran Leonard Bundu (33-1-2, 12 KOs), who hails from Freetown, Sierra Leone, by way of Florence, Italy.
