Mikey Garcia and Errol Spence edge ever closer to their welterweight title fight, as both men would address the press on Tuesday in Dallas.
Spence, the favorite in their IBF welterweight title fight, is excited for the opportunity to face the four-division world champion on March 16th.
“Well first of all, I’m happy somebody challenged me. I’ve been looking for a name-known opponent, somebody with a record like his,” Spence said of the current WBC lightweight champion. “I’m happy that I took on that challenge.”
“I’ve got the pedigree. Even if I don’t have that experience I have the pedigree to overcome anything he brings to the table come March 16.”
Garcia said that he took the challenge of fighting Spence at AT&T Stadium for one reason, legacy.
“I’m looking for legacy, you know, I’m in search of greatness. You know, not many fighters get an opportunity to do what I’m doing — you know, fighting another undefeated champion in their prime. And that’s the kind of fight that excites me, that’s the kind of fight that motivates and that’s the type of fight I need to bring the best out of me. And that’s why we decided and chose to go after Errol Spence.”
