From the standpoint of craft and technical artistry, Saturday’s title bout (Fox PPV, 9 p.m. ET) between unbeaten and pound-for-pound ranked welterweights is among the best fights that can be made in the sport for lovers of the sweet science. The fact that both Garcia (39-0, 30 KOs) and Spence (24-0, 21 KOs) possess both fight-altering and fight ending power, respectively, only sweetens the pot.
For the 31-year-old Garcia, a four-division champion, an opportunity at a title in a fifth weight class against the most dangerous opponent available gives him the chance to call himself the best in the world if he wins. Meanwhile, for the 29-year-old Spence, who enters his backyard of AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, as the favorite, it’s an opportunity for crossover stardom while headlining his first pay-per-view card.
What makes the matchup so interesting is that both have commented how much they see themselves in each other in terms of how they carry themselves inside the ring. Spence is a southpaw who will hold advantages of three inches in height and four inches in reach. Yet both carry themselves with a similar level of poise and patient control as they systematically break down their opponents.
Most believe Spence will be too big and strong for Garcia, but the latter’s elite skill level creates at least a glimmer of doubt. That is where the intrigue lies. Garcia might be a better technical boxer, but he’s giving up three inches in height and four in the reach department. It isn’t as if he’s facing a smallish welterweight. Spence is big for the division. His shoulders are broad and he competed upwards of 154 pounds in the Olympics.
