    Default Errol Spence Jr., Danny Garcia agree to PPV fight

    https://www.cbssports.com/boxing/new...r-per-reports/



    This should be a good one. These are two great boxers with pop. I'd much rather see a fight like this than any fight involving Shawn Porter, TBH.

    As far as who wins, I imagine the favorite will be Spence..... but I was surprised by Garcia once before when he beat Matthysse.

    Garcia still seems like a top fighter. It seems like he has been around for a long time too without ever really losing a step. Garcia has massive issues with fighters who come forward and throw a lot. It prevents him from letting his hands go.

    Basically I think that if Spence is still in his pre accident form, he should win pretty easily. The accident is a huge question mark though.

    If Garcia is in his pre-Thurmond stage he'll lose for lack of speed.

    I have never rated Danny Garcia since he got bashed up and landed that lucky shot against Amir Khan. Garcia has strategically fought his way up the rankings at welterweight and lost the big fights when he had his chance.

    Spence should win this relatively easy, the real interest is seeing what the car accident has taken out of Errol if anything.

    That shot wasn’t lucky against Khan. Garcia is an excellent counter puncher and Khan has proven many times in his career that he can get caught with counter punches. There’s no way Khan could have kept that up for 12 rounds without getting caught eventually.

    I just hope if both guys bring their A-game..... that whoever wins gets the credit they deserve. Spence wouldn't be coming back to face a Garcia if he didn't feel (and his team) that he was 100%.

    This is a tough 1st fight back for Spence after his accident. If he is less than 100% back Garcia could spring an upset. Spence controls distance very well and I'm not sure Garcia has the speed to land his counters against Spence.

    Errol Spence Jr is back in the ring next month against hard-hitting Danny Garcia with his world welterweight titles up for grabs.

    Fighting out of Dallas, Texas, ‘The Truth’ will be fighting at the home of the Dallas Cowboys.

    The 31-year-old survived a horrific car accident just over a year ago, incredibly walking away with minor injuries.

    The accident occurred just weeks after arguably the biggest win of his career in a points victory over Shawn Porter, which ensured he unified the belts at 147 belts.

    Now back in the ring, he takes on Danny Garcia, who previously knocked out Amir Khan, in a tough fight to set up the potential for mega fights in 2021 against Terence Crawford and Manny Pacquiao.

    The fight is on Saturday, 5 December in Arlington, Texas at the Dallas Cowboys’ home, AT&T Stadium.

    It will see around 11,000 fans in attendance with the Cowboys already showcasing their ability to welcome socially-distanced spectators during the NFL season.


    The fight will start on 6 December in the UK, with ring walks expected after 4am and the fight to start 15-20 minutes following that.

    Yup, Danny just barely missed that shot many times before he landed it. It was only a matter of time, the lucky part was that it lasted so long. When I rewatch it I’m constantly “that was so close” “oh, just missed, it’s coming”

    I shake my head in disbelief when people say “ but Khan was winning on points.” He got decked in round 3 and was doing a funny walk.so that would’ve have been a 10-8 round, and spent all of Round 4 getting battered while walking away until he was stopped.

    I'm looking forward to this one and if Garcia wins he gets the credit, I just hope that people don't automatically say "Spence is fucked from the accident" if he loses, he has taken the fight so he's got to be confident that he can get the win.

    Danny Garcia won't let built-in excuse for Errol Spence Jr. distract him

    Danny Garcia isn’t frequently acclaimed as one of the best fighters in the world. Part of that, perhaps, is that one of his few faults as a boxer is that he can fight down to the level of his competition.

    But Garcia, who at 32 years old is a veteran of 13 years as a professional, is 36-2 with 21 knockouts. His only losses came on close decisions to Shawn Porter and Keith Thurman.

    He lost a unanimous decision to Porter on Sept. 9, 2018, though the judges agreed on only four of the 12 rounds. It was that kind of a fight.

    His first pro loss came to Thurman on March 4, 2017. That was a split decision that easily could have gone the other way.

    If those fights had gone his way, there would be a lot more attention being paid to his pay-per-view fight on Saturday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, against IBF-WBC welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr.

    Spence is 26-0 with 21 knockouts. If it were two undefeated fighters going head-to-head for supremacy in the welterweight division, the entire world would stop for it.

    As it is, it’s an excellent fight that got heavily overshadowed by the Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. exhibition match. But of the three pay-per-view shows the Premier Boxing Champions has put on this fall, this is by far the best and most compelling main event.


    And a big reason for that is the perennially underrated Garcia, who is nagged by things he could have done better not only in the two fights he lost but also in the fights in which he won.

    “Always,” he told Yahoo Sports. “Even fights that I won, I look back and say I could have done something better. You always feel like you could have done something better. Those are two fights that I could have won, and that I feel like I won. But they’re in the past now and I really can’t do nothing about it. I’m really focused on [Saturday] now and that’s my main goal now.

    “Everything I’ve done in the past, it doesn’t really mean anything any more. I have to go in there on [Saturday] and [understand] this is my new future.”

    Spence seems to be on a collision course with Terence Crawford, the WBO champion who is also undefeated. After Spence’s fiery accident in October 2019 in which his sports car tumbled end over end, Spence is lucky to be alive.

    Crawford said he didn’t want to fight Spence in the first fight back after the accident because he felt if he won, he wouldn’t get the credit for it because the accident would be used as an excuse.

    Saturday will mark Spence’s first fight since that fateful night, but Garcia had no problem. He was scheduled to fight Spence previously, before the accident, and said he felt it made sense to move ahead with it.

    Garcia frequently hasn’t gotten credit for his accomplishments and so he doesn’t worry about it. He believes Spence wouldn’t have taken the fight were he not healthy and ready to show his skills.

    “That doesn’t concern me at all,” Garcia said of fighting Spence in Spence’s first bout since the accident. “At the end of the day, I’ve been training hard and I’ve been preparing myself for the best Spence. That’s all that matters to me. My job is to win no matter the circumstances.”

    Garcia is a healthy underdog at the MGM Grand Sports Book, where Spence is -450 and Garcia is +340.


    It shows a level of disrespect for a fighter who has been among his sport’s best for at least eight years.

    Garcia shrugs it off because he knows the opinions of others don’t matter. Even his outspoken and often profane father, Angel, is taking it in stride as they prepare for the bout.

    “There’s never been a fight that we’ve taken lightly,” said Angel Garcia, who also trains his son. “We’ve always taken everybody seriously and of course that’s the same for this fight. We don’t change things; we just multiply fight by fight. Danny has always been the underdog. Whether it was Amir Khan or Lucas Matthysse, it don’t matter. He’s only the underdog because Spence is undefeated, but that doesn’t mean anything when we get in the ring.

    “What really matters is that once Danny lands his shots, will Spence be able to handle them? I’m not worried about anything that’s being said on the outside. If Danny throws a straight right and hits him flush, Spence isn’t getting up. Spence hasn’t been hit yet. I respect every fight, but Spence has only really fought three guys that people know. Just look at all the fighters Danny has fought. That résumé matters.”

    They both have strong résumés and this fight is one that is comparable to any of the best welterweight bouts of the decade.

    Garcia may finally get credit for his talent should he pull off the upset, but he’s not worried about it.

    He’s a fighter’s fighter and so when the bout ends, his first thought won’t be about having proven anyone wrong.

    It will, as it always is with Garcia, be about this:

    “Who’s next?”

    Undercard has really been shuffled but 75 bucks on a ppv main event has not. Can see a huge contrast in what geezer Mike & Roy with some youtube wanker raked in last week but this will be a top notch competitive fight. Spence up close and often stood up high is not hard to miss! But I think Garcia goes for it if-when in trouble and Spence stops him late championship rounds. The way he rolls out varying power combos remains insane.
