Showdown in Texas! – Errol Spence Jr. v Mikey Garcia

Tonight’s Welterweight world title fight between IBF world champion Errol Spence Jr. and 4-weight world champion Mikey Garcia brings together everything that a fight fan could wish for in what can be described as a Superfight.

Spence Jr. who dislodged the IBF title from Britain’s Kell Brook with a stoppage win in 11 rounds, will clearly come the time of the bell for the first round  have a considerable weight advantage over Garcia which could be as much as 10 lbs.

However despite Spence Jr. being the bigger man, that hasn’t stopped Boxing Legends such as Mike Tyson, Sugar Ray Leonard and George Foreman to name a few predicting that Garcia will win the fight.

Garcia has more experience with a 39-0 record compared to Spence Jr’s 24-0 record and won his first world title as a Featherweight in 2013  compared to Spence Jr. who won the IBF welterweight title in 2017.

Both fighters have formidable technical skills as fighters with a high percentage of knockouts between them which makes this a fascinating showdown between two fighters who are ranked in the top 10 of current  pound for pound fighters.

History tells us that a great bigger fighter will prevail against a great smaller fighter  as World Heavyweight champion  Joe Louis showed against Light-Heavyweight champion Billy Conn in their classic encounter in 1941 when Louis was in his prime.

Whether the 31 year old Garcia can carry the extra weight at 147 lbs and be as effective against Spencer Jr. who is in his prime at 29 years old, is open to debate but this showdown has all the ingredients of being a classic encounter between two great fighters in which Spence Jr should win by a late stoppage.
