In this fight Spence has an intriguingly challenger. Garcia is the WBC champion at lightweight and has leapt up two divisions to take on Spence in this Fox Sports pay-per-view event. Although Garcia has fought and won at super-lightweight he is clearly the smaller man, a few years back for instance he was a highly successful featherweight.
But he is talented. Spence has to acknowledge that. “I think he definitely brings a lot to the table,” the champion said. “People who say that he doesn’t stand a chance I feel like don’t really know anything about boxing or don’t know the history of boxing, just to say he doesn’t have a chance. He does have a title at 140lbs.
