On March 16 at AT & T Stadium in Arlington Texas, a fascinating and gripping fight between WBC lightweight champion Mikey Garcia (39-0 / 30ko) and IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr (24-0 / 21ko), with World Boxing Council Diamond belt at stake.
Spence Jr is a resident of Texas and is considered one of the best welterweights with significant punching power and refined technique.
Garcia who is also undefeated has fought several times in Texas, most recently in San Antonio when he defeated Sergey Lipinets in super lightweight.
While moving 2 division represents a major challenge for Mikey, he recognizes that it is those difficult fights that really motivate him, since his desire is to go down in history as one of the greats.
Facing Errol will be a complex mission, because in addition to giving away height and reach, Mikey has had to train and adapt his physique to face a different rival that comes to this battle with 11 consecutive knockouts.
