IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence gets the biggest fight of his career so far on Saturday  (March 16), when he takes on Mikey Garcia at the AT&T stadium in Arlington, Texas.

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.
