What Does Danny Garcia Think Of Errol Spence Jr. Matchup?
Danny Garcia is feeling good ahead of his title fight with Errol Spence Jr.
On November 21, Garcia is expected to challenge Spence for the WBC and IBF Welterweight Titles. This will be Garcia’s first major title bout since September 8, 2018, when he fell short against Shawn Porter. Garcia did rebound by scoring a seventh-round TKO victory over Adrian Granados, capturing the WBC Silver title in the process.
Appearing on The Last Stand Podcast with Brian Custer, Garcia expressed his belief that he stacks up well with Spence (h/t Boxing Scene).
“Even before the accident. I felt like, you know, the things I seen in the Mikey Garcia fight and the Porter fight, I felt like, you know, his style was great for my style. And before anything, I felt like I could take him. But I definitely feel like it’s the right time. It’s Danny Garcia time, basically,” Garcia said.
“It’s time for me to go up there and take what’s mine because I am the true WBC champion. I’m the true WBC champion at 140 and 147. You know, I had a six- or seven-year reign at that. You know, I took a little break. But now it’s time to come back and take what’s mine.”
This will be Spence’s first bout since his car accident back in October 2019. He last competed back on September 28, 2019. He defeated Shawn Porter via split decision to capture the WBC Welterweight Title while retaining his IBF gold.
Up to this point, Spence has been perfect in his pro boxing career. He has a record of 26-0 with 21 of those wins coming by way of knockout. It’s an important fight for Spence as he will know just how much the car accident has impacted his career if it has at all.
As for Garcia, his plan is to take Spence’s gold and unbeaten record before having one last fight at 147 pounds. He wants to move up to the 154-pound division.
