Less than a week after Errol Spence Jr. (23-0, 20 KOs) defeated Lamont Peterson, he will be getting his wish to fight at home in his next title defense of his IBF welterweight title on June 16 against his likely mandatory challenger Carlos Ocampo (22-0, 13 KOs) in Dallas, Texas.

Spence-Ocampo is still yet to be negotiated, but the IBF ordered the fight this week for Spence’s next defence.

Spence is riding the crest of his impressive 7th round stoppage win last Saturday night over Lamont Peterson. That was a voluntary defense for Spence. After the fight, Spence said he wanted to return home to fight in Dallas for his next title defense.

Spence lives in Desoto, Texas, which is in Dallas County.

Spence will have a lot of his fans turning out to see him put on a show against the little known Ocampo, who will likely be the equivalent of a voluntary defense/tune-up.

Ocampo has fought only in Mexico during his 6-year pro career. The closest that Ocampo has come to fighting a quality opponent was his fight against Rames Agaton (20-6-3, 10 KOs).

Ocampo beat Agaton by a one-sided 10 round unanimous decision in June 2016. Ocampo did a better job beating Agaton than the highly ranked Top Rank fighter Konstantin Ponomarev, who beat him by an 8 round majority decision in November 2015.
