Garcia is a weighty dark horse against Spence, however he’s apro. He has beaten any semblance of Robert Guerrero, Zab Judah and Amir Khan, and his latest session saw him score a predominant seventh-round stoppage prevail upon Adrian Granados in April.
The 32-year-old is a sharp counterpuncher with an extraordinary jawline, however he’s hasn’t had the option to ascend to the top in a jam-packed welterweight division, having barely lost huge battles to Shawn Watchman and Keith Thurman as of late. Spence will be maybe the hardest test of Garcia’s profession, yet the Philadelphia local accepts he can cut out a way to triumph.
Accepting that he’s at his best, Spence should have the option to deal with whatever Garcia tosses at him. Yet, questions will wait until the battle gets in progress considering all that Spence has experienced in the most recent year. The 30-year-old southpaw paced his recuperation from the accident and just began fighting again in September, per Hurray Sports’ Kevin Iole. He confessed to stressing over his capacity to battle at certain focuses.
He could hop onto the worldwide stage and line up a battle with Manny Pacquiao, who holds the WBA overly world welterweight title. Yet, the Filipino is 41 years of age, and we’ve seen him lowered previously. A contender who hasn’t yet been lowered in the ring, and the one boxing idealists would most like Spence to confront, is Terence Bud Crawford.
The undefeated 33-year-old is falling off a staggering knockout win over Kell Creek and has communicated interest in taking on Spence. Crawford, the WBO champion at 147 pounds, is three years more established than the New Yorker, so the sooner that battle can get made, the better for all included.
