Barclay's Center, Brooklyn, NY, April 16
By Peter Lim
Spence (19-0, 16 KOs) has the superior skill set, speed and power so there is little doubt as to who wins this one. The suspense in this fight stems from whether or not Spence will be the first fighter to stop the tough and determined Algieri (21-2, 8 KOs). Spence hits as hard as Pacquiao but is a more ferocious finisher. But if Algieri could weather the relentless offense of Provodnikov, he will survive Spence's onslaught as well en route to losing a lopsided decision.
A head shot ended the fight but it was really the body shots that did the most damage.
