What Do Errol Spence Jr. And Danny Garcia Think Of Their Title Fight?
Errol Spence Jr. and Danny Garcia are weighing in on their huge title fight.
Spence is the WBC and IBF Welterweight Champion. Garcia will challenge him for the gold on November 21. It’ll be Spence’s first bout since the October car crash that had him in ICU. Many are wondering if the crash has impacted Spence’s fighting abilities.
One thing appears to be clear and that is Spence hasn’t lost his confidence. Speaking to Brian Kenny during a PBC on FOX broadcast, Spence said he feels Garcia hasn’t lived up to expectations at welterweight (h/t Boxing Scene).
“At 140 (pounds), I’m not gonna lie, he was doing his thing. At 147, he’s fallen short.”
Garcia responded to Spence’s take by saying that he got too complacent in his two career losses to Keith Thurman and Shawn Porter.
“I will say a lot of that is because I was comfortable with where I was at in life. I was already a two-division champ. I didn’t get up as much as I should have for those fights, as far as that grit and wanting it more. This fight, I feel like this is it. I’m seasoned now. I’ve been in a lot of tough fights. I feel good. I feel like my career is where I want it to be and I feel better than ever.”
Spence was last seen in action back on September 28, 2019. He took a split decision victory over Shawn Porter. Spence retained his IBF gold while capturing the WBC Title thanks to the win.
As for Garcia, He was in action earlier this year. On January 25, Garcia shared the boxing ring with Ivan Redkach. Garcia scooped up the unanimous decision victory after 12 rounds of action. Garcia is a former WBC Welterweight Champion so he’ll be looking to add gold to his mantle again.
