# 12 WBA welterweight contender Errol Spence Jr. (18-0, 15 KOs) will be battling late next month on November 28th versus non-top 15 ranked junior middleweight Alejandro Barrera (28-2, 18 KOs) in a 12 round fight on the undercard of IBF 154lb champion Jermall Charlo’s first title defense against unknown Wilky Campfort (21-1, 12 KOs) on Premier Boxing Champions on NBC from The Bomb Factory in Dallas, Texas.
Both fights seem mismatches unfortunately, however the 25-year-old Spence at least isn’t a champ, so it’s not as bad for him that he’s taking on a soft opponent.
Spence wants to fight for a world title today, however he’s not ranked high enough for him to get a title shot versus any of the champs. He was ranked at No. 8 by the WBA, however they have actually moved him down twice after his wins over Phil Lo Greco and Chris van Heerden. It’s not that Spence didn’t look good in those fights. It’s more a case of the WBA wishing to press the following fighters above him: 44-year-old Shane Mosley, Teerachai Kratingdaeggym, Sadam Ali, Charlie Navarro, David Avanesyan and Dmitry Mikhaylenko.
