PHOTOS: ERROL SPENCE LOOKING FIGHT FIT FOR HISTORICAL MATCH AGAINST MIKEY GARCIA
Errol Spence Jr. (24-0, 21 KO's) looked in great shape and fighting fit for the defense of his IBF Welterweight World Championship belt against the four-division world champion Mikey Garcia (39-0, 30 KO's) at the media workouts in Dallas, Texas.
Leading up to this historical fight, Spence looked very confident and calm with all the cameras on him as he warmed up and worked the mitts with his trainer.
Prior to the fight, Spence was called out by Garcia, who has never lost a fight, has more knockouts than Spence' total matches, and is moving up two weight divisions.
That is why this match has such a historical factor and is being compared to the Leonard v. Hagler fight when Leonard came out of retirement and moved up two weights to fight the undefeated Hagler.
The result of that is not what Spence will want and he is very determined for that not to happen.
After going to England to capture the IBF Welterweight World Championship belt from Kell Brook, Spence has made two defenses against Lamont Peterson and Carlos Ocampo.
But this time he goes up against a fighter who is in his prime and claims he has equal or better boxing skills than him.
Spence will be fighting at the Cowboys stadium, and considers his home town to be Dallas, Texas.
The fight will be promoted by Premier Boxing Champions on FOX Sports Pay-Per-View this Saturday, March 16 from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
