The two unbeaten boxers meet in the main event of the first pay-per-view telecast offered by Fox as part of a four-year partnership with Premier Boxing Champions. Garcia (39-0 with 30 knockouts) holds the WBC 135-pound lightweight title and wants to add Spence’s 147-belt to his collection.
“Getting this victory will leave my name in the history books,” Garcia said this week. “I’m here to make history, and this fight does that. No other fighter dares to do what I’m doing and that’s what I’m about.”
Perhaps Garcia, 31, is being too brave for his own good. Trained by his older brother Robert, Garcia is easily one of the sport’s elite fighters, having won belts at featherweight, super featherweight, lightweight and super lightweight. He is a master technician with the ability to break down an opponent with timing and power. The Oxnard, Calif., native is also confident.
“I’ve got all the tools and skills needed to beat him,” Garcia said. “I’m better than him in every way. When it comes to timing, when it comes to reflexes, defense, you name it, I’m better.”
That has to be proven. Spence, a member of the 2012 U.S. Olympic team, has been impressive just about every time he has entered the ring. Like Garcia, Spence (24-0, 21 KOs) is a puncher and a thinker with explosive power. This will be his third defense of the IBF title.With all of the talk regarding Mikey Garcia’s daring move up two weight divisions and whether IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. can live up to his reputation as the boogeyman who everyone avoids, the time if finally here to focus on the actual matchup.
From the standpoint of craft and technical artistry, Saturday’s title bout (Fox PPV, 9 p.m. ET) between unbeaten and pound-for-pound ranked welterweights is among the best fights that can be made in the sport for lovers of the sweet science. The fact that both Garcia (39-0, 30 KOs) and Spence (24-0, 21 KOs) possess both fight-altering and fight ending power, respectively, only sweetens the pot.
