R1- As soon as Peterson gets close, Spence tags him with a counter left. The jab at Spence is getting through the guard of Peterson often, and is keeping Peterson from firing back when it doesn’t get through. The straight left to the stomach is landing for Spence as well.

R2- Peterson sneaks in a few counter rights early on, but Spence is smacking the sides and front of his body continuously with power punches. The jab of Spence is making it hard for Peterson to get in his preferred range, and Spence hurts him briefly late with a combination through and around the guard, which causes Peterson to shell up and lay on the ropes.

R3- Spence is scoring heavily with the 1-2 early on, looping with his left hand to effectively get around the guard of Peterson. When Peterson opens up and exchanges with Spence midway, he lands some hooks to the head that Spence tries to say are rabbit punches, but they appear legal. Still, Spence is easily outgunning him, particularly with the angles that he is showcasing within his body work. This is honestly Peterson’s best round, but it is still a major stretch to say that he won it.

R4- The ref has been on Spence all night about low blows, but it seems he lands the first actual one in this round. Spence steps on the gas, sitting on the left to the midsection, which always lands for him. The right hooks and left uppercuts are landing at will. Peterson gets in a counter right hand late, but Spence drills him with a pair of lefts and a combo to the body in response.

R5- The right eye is closing on Peterson, who unsuccessfully tries to force the fight early. Spence quickly assumes control, hitting Peterson with power shots at ease, especially to the body. After a big flurry punctuated by a chopping left to the head, Peterson is down. Doing service with a smile, Spence stalks Peterson like a mad man, jolting him multiple times with left hands and assaulting his body. Showing tons of heart, Peterson is often punching with Spence, but is unable to get Spence’s respect whenever he lands. Fun round, and a great one for Spence.

R6- Connecting heavily during, Spence ralllies pretty much the whole round, not giving Peterson any space, and hardly a moment to punch back. The jab is key for Spence, but he is landing a variety of power shots at numerous angles. Peterson lands a right at one point, only for Spence to respond with a four-punch combo to the head.

R7- Ringside doctors examine Peterson at the start of the round due to the bad condition of both of his eyes. With Peterson in survival mode, Spence is still giving him nothing short of a hard time, displaying lots of shuffling-like footwork and feints, keeping Peterson guessing and creating angles for his own offense, particularly with his body work and uppercuts.
After taking a sustained beating for seven rounds, Peterson’s trainer/father figure mercifully pulls him out of the fight. When I first saw this, I was a year into being a boxing fan and wanted to box personally. As an aspiring pressure fighter, I was inspired. I was in awe at the pressure, angles, and killer instinct displayed by Spence. While Peterson had seen better days and was at a size disadvantage, I do not think he would ever beat Spence or really give him a hard time. He was never really in the fight, and I don’t think him going in with a slow starting strategy was wise. II do commend him for the heart and grit he displayed here though. Good win for Spence.
