The heavyweight beat the test on Saturday night in Arlington, Texas, when he faces ULS Champion Errol Spence Jr. Danny Garcia in the main event of Fox PPV. Spence’s battle (26-0, 21 KOs) will be the first since the terrible car accident in October 2019 when he managed to escape largely unscathed.
For Garcia, it’s an opportunity to top the division again after losing a pair of tough decisions to Shawn Porter and Keith Thurman in previous shots with the 147-pound titles. “Swift” (36-2, 21 KOs) has had two victories over Ivan Redkach and Adrian Granados since losing to Porter in September 2018. It’s an important division showdown with stuck champions like Terence Crawford and Manny Pacquiao keen to unite all four titles.
