How Errol Spence Jr Fights
Throughout his boxing career, Errol Spence Jr has shown a tendency to walk down his opponents in an attempt to get them into striking range. If Errol is successful, he will repeatedly throw the right jab to get the opponent to stand still and block the punch.
Once this happens, Spence will look to get his lead right foot around the opponent’s lead foot to eliminate the small space between them. If he can achieve the goal, Errol Spence will throw a right hook to the body followed by a left hook or straight left to the body.
For instance, against Chris Algieri, Errol repeatedly threw the right jab until Algieri decided to cover up. After Chris covered up, he moved his lead right foot around Algieri’s lead left foot and proceeded to throw a right hook to the body followed by a left hook or straight left to the body.
How To Beat Errol Spence Jr
However, one can argue that Errol Spence Jr’s fighting style will be the catalyst for his first loss. This is because every time he moves forward to close the distance, Errol always maintains his hands at or above the jawline.
Due to this, Spence is continuously giving his opponents an opportunity to land punches to the body without resistance.
As a result of this, when Errol Spence Jr comes forward, his opponent should look to duck under the jab and throw one or two punches to the body. Once the opponent is done, he should circle out of striking range in either direction.
The game plan should force Errol to regularly reset and slowly drain him of energy. If the opponent can successfully implement the game plan for the first half of the fight,
Errol should become more of a stationary target in the latter half. As a result, he should have the opportunity to stand his ground and throw more power punches.
