Errol Spence vs Danny Garcia
Two of the top fighters in the boxing industry will go head to head when IBF and WBC Welterweight Champion Errol Spence Jr and former two-division champion Danny García face off on November 21. The highly anticipated welterweight bout will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
Spence Jr. and Garcia are two of the greatest boxers of the past decade, and the winner of the matchup will walk away with both the WBC and IBF welterweight titles. An interesting aspect of this match is how well the two men match one another in the ring.
30-year-old Spence Jr. is 5′ 9½″ and has a 72″ wingspan with a southpaw stance. On the other hand, 32-year-old Garcia is 5’8” and has a 68½” wingspan and fights with an orthodox stance.
Spence Jr. will be making his return to the ring after an October 2019 car accident that left him in the intensive care unit. He was reportedly driving drunk and received a DWI after being released from the hospital.
The incident was a negative one for the champion’s legacy. He received a lot of heat for making the poor decision to get behind the wheel. Furthermore, many wonder if he will be as effective as he was before his accident, but we do not have to wait much longer to find out.
Spence Jr. credits his training with Floyd Mayweather as a major reason why he is such a force in the industry today.“When I fought Floyd, the sparring was intense,” said Spence Jr. “It was tit for tat. It was very competitive.”
Garcia got back on the winning track after his two victories in his last two bouts. Before that, he had lost two out of his previous three matches spanning from March 2017 to September 2018. He will look to keep his good fortune going and end Spence Jr.’s incredible winning streak in the process.
