WITH ‘The Truth’ looming ever closer for Kell Brook, Boxing News spoke to Errol Spence’s last opponent, Leonard Bundu, about this weekend’s huge showdown.

Bundu fought Spence last August in the Italian’s second big American fight after two separate reigns as undefeated European champion – in 2014 he lost a one-sided but creditable decision to the excellent Keith Thurman in Las Vegas. That Thurman fight, in which a frustrated and wary Bundu was never really able to get close to his elusive but always coiled adversary, played a part in influencing how he approached the Spence fight. Determined not to let the rounds get away from him, Bundu put in a spirited effort against Spence and had the occasional success. Nonetheless he was outgunned and outworked in every round before being razed to the ground by a huge right hook in the sixth.

Reflecting on that fight, Bundu gave his thoughts on what Brook can expect when he gets into the ring with the touted Texan.
