AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, held one of the year's best fights with Errol Spence jr. and Yordenis Ugas. Spence got the TKO victory in round 10 after dominating Ugas after round 1. Spence's first round was rough, but he made some adjustments and dominated every round except for round 6. During round 6, Spence got hit with some big shots because he lost his mouthpiece, and he searched for it. After he turned to look for his mouthpiece, he was clipped by Ugas and sent across the ring. I had Ugas winning round 1 and 6 because of that. All the other rounds went to Spence.

I thought the ref said 'stop,' so I stopped," said Spence, who scored his first stoppage of a champion since he won the IBF title from Kell Brook in May 2017. "And then he hit me with three or four shots. That's my fault. That was a rookie mistake. You're supposed to protect yourself at all times, and I didn't do that. I wasn't out on my feet. I turned and looked at my mouthpiece and he hit me.

After unifying the welterweight titles, Spence immediately called out Terence Crawford. Spence holds 3 of the major belts in the welterweight division, and Crawford has the last piece to the puzzle. If Spence unifies all four belts, he will be the first to do so in the four-belt era. The victory added Ugas's WBA welterweight title and Spence's WBC and IBF belts. Terence Crawford currently has the WBO title. Crawford and Spence have talked about fighting for years, but now it can happen because Crawford is a free agent.

Congratulations, great fight, now the real fight happens," Crawford tweeted at Spence. "No more talk, no more side of the street, let's go!

There are talks of Spence moving up after the Crawford fight, but Crawford is the next step to solidify his legacy.
