Errol Spence is the slight (-135) favorite over Kell Brook (+105), according to Bovada boxing betting.
Errol Spence Jr. has long been viewed by boxing pundits as the future of the welterweight division and the oddsmakers seem to agree because they have made him the favorite over welterweight champ Kell Brook in his own backyard.
The fact that Spence is favored over Brook at this point in his career says a lot, especially when you consider that Brook is at the top of his game and his only loss came against GGG in a fight where he stepped up in weight to face a monster and put forth a respectable effort.
Spence is coming off two wins in which he absolutely destroyed two former welterweight title contenders in Leonard Bundu and Chris Algieri. This is impressive because he stopped these two fighters for the first time after they had lasted the distance with other top welterweights.
The advantages that Spence will have in this fight is that he is a southpaw with a 3 inch reach advantage. While Brook will have the edge in experience and will have the benefit of a partisan crowd in England.
