At the media day workout in Dallas, Texas for the upcoming fight between Errol Spence Jr. (24-0, 21 KO's) and Mikey Garcia (39-0, 30 KO's), Spence warmed up on the mitts and the heavy bag and is great condition.
The undefeated Spence appeared to be in top shape and ready to defend his IBF Welterweight championship belt against Garcia at the Cowboys Stadium in front of his hometown fans.
Their has been lots of views on the outcome of this fight, specifically about the weight difference, and Spence has been called the weight bully, but his response to that was that he was the one called out by Garcia.
But even he knows that weight and height are not all that matters in a fight of this caliber and he is ready to make his third defense of his welterweight belt.
It is less than a week for the showdown between Spence, who is considered the best in the 147 pound division and Garcia, the four-division world champion who is moving up two weight divisions.

ERROL SPENCE JR.
"I'm really excited for this fight, especially to have it at AT&T Stadium. I'm 100% focused and ready for next week. This fight is going to have a bigger crowd, be more electrifying and will just be an amazing event overall.
"A lot of times when I'm in AT&T Stadium watching the NFL games, or watching Pacquiao fights or Canelo fights, the jumbotrons are so big that you get caught up looking up even when you're ringside. It's great because there isn't a bad seat in the place with the jumbotron."
"This is definitely one of those crossover fights for me. Garcia is the biggest name to date that I'm fighting on American soil. It's just great being so young in my career, fighting in my first pay-per-view and fighting with a guy like Garcia who brings over a different fanbase."
"You can tell how I looked ten weeks ago compared to how I look now. I'm not overlooking Garcia. I'm in tip-top shape, slim and ready. The difference is that now in a pay-per-view fight you have to be more dedicated and focused to promote the fight, showing that you are a star in boxing and sports media."
"If you know me and you know my boxing style, you know I'm never in a boring fight. Even if it's just me beating up my opponent, or them just being hurt, I'm always going to try to stop my opponent and put on a spectacular performance."
"I put that pressure to look great on myself, not just because I'm undefeated or because everybody says this about me, I do it for myself to put on a great performance and a great show. I want to do that so great guys can look at me and think about if they want to fight me or not. That's why a lot of guys don't want to fight me."
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.
