    R8- Spence definitely appears to be the fresher of the two, as he is consistently beating Brook to the punch in the exchanges, casually walking forward and pinpointing the straight left with success. Brook has a good moment towards the middle where he switches southpaw and lands a three-punch combo, but Spence puts up a stiff guard and walks through his punches in order to attack his body again. Brook lands a good right hand near the end, but it doesn’t overshadow the duo pairs of hooks that Spence landed square on each side of his jaw moments prior. As Paulie pointed out, the right eye of Brook, which notably was the same one injured by GGG. Another good round for Spence.

    R7- Despite this fantastic start through the first half by the champ, the young challenger would start to take from here. Whether he is walking forward or using it as a defensive device on the backfoot, Spence is having a lot of success with the jab. Of course, he is landing several straight lefts to the body and head behind the jab as well. The body work is still pivotal for Spence as well, allowing him to dominate the sequences of infighting. Rather than trying to gain the upperhand, Brook tries to halt Spences inside work by continuously pushing him back during the clinch. With Brook noticeably ducking his head over and over in the clinch, Spence is tagging him repeatedly with left uppercuts. Good bounceback round for Spence.

    R6- Plenty of good back and forth action occurs in the round, with both men having success. Spence comes out with the jab, only for Brook to halt his momentum with a counter jab and then blast him with a 1-2 combo. A blocked shot manages to get Spence off balance, but he catches Brook with a counter before he can capitalize. Spence lands several counter lefts and body shots, but Brook gets the edge towards the end by landing multiple clean rights and uppercuts, and also maintains effective aggression throughout the round by constantly pushing Spence back.

    R5- From the outside, Brook is tagging Spence with 1-2’s, and on the inside, he is hitting him with solid uppercuts to the head and body as well as walking him into the ropes during the clinches. Spence gets in numerous lefts in the closing portion starting when Brook briefly turns southpaw, but Brook was still in control of most of the round.

    R4- While the jab has been a prominent weapon for both thus far, each seems to abandon it in exchange for some high level trading instead. A lot of it takes place on the inside, allowing Spence to do some good work to the body in the first half. He also catches Brook coming in with a nice left cross. The right hand of Brook is still doing good for him, particularly with an uppercut that snaps back Spence’s head in the pocket. A late combination from Brook allows him to stop Spence’s momentum and swing the round in his favor in my opinion. A close and great round.

    R3- I honestly question compubox’s assessment of Brook only landing five jabs up to this point. Despite that, this is the best that Spence’s jab has looked in the fight thus far. For some more role-reversal, Spence is doing some good countering, particularly with lefts over the top and a well-timed right hook that Brook walks into when moving left on the ropes. In the final minute, a clean “chocolate brownie” from Brook seems to hurt Spence, as he holds a good portion of the round, allowing Brook to push him back without picking back up on his own momentum. While Brook seemed to land the best shot of the round, he failed to capitalize on it at all, and Spence overall did more work in the round.

    R2- It’s impressive how Brook, who has an excellent jab himself has been able to take away the jab of Spence, who has shown one of the best jabs in all of boxing through recent years. Aside from outpacing him, Brook is impressively angling his jab over Spence’s to effectively counter him. The uppercuts and left hooks are effectively landing through or around Spence’s guard. Spence has a bit of success on his behalf, but he was definitely outgunned in this round and it was clear he was new to this level of comp. Fun round, and a great one for Brook.
