The fall often sees a number of huge boxing events, and while many fans may already have their sights set on the huge heavyweight showdown between Anthony Joshua and Kubrat Pulev, there is a huge welterweight contest to look forward to this weekend before that.
Errol Spence Jr and Danny Garcia are two of the most exciting fighters in the world, and they will meet this weekend for the IBF and WBC welterweight titles. But, will Garcia be able to put recent defeats behind him and claim a huge win at the AT&T Stadium?
Boxing News: Garcia Looking For More World Titles
Danny Garcia is widely regarded as one of the best fighters in the world, and is currently ranked by BoxRec as the eighth best in a very competition welterweight division. He has achieved success throughout his career by winning world titles in two different weight classifications. His most dominant era came between 2012 and 2015, as he was the lineal light welterweight champion, as he beat all of the biggest names in that division.
The step up to the welterweight division has raised questions about whether he has the tools to compete with the best, and defeats against Keith Thurman and Shawn Porter means that there will be questions hanging over Garcia coming into this fight. However, he has won his last two in the division, with the most recent of those coming against Ivan Redkach in January.
Boxing News: Spence Jr Looking To Make A Statement
The challenge in front of Garcia couldn’t be any bigger, as Spence Jr boasts a perfect record. He has won all 26 of his professional fights, and has knocked out 21 of his opponents. Spence Jr will be the heavy favourite to regain his WBC and IBF belts. A victory could set up a huge unification bout against either Manny Pacquiao or Terence Crawford next year.
Spence Jr’s record is something to behold, as the list of names that he has beaten is staggering. Among the fighters that he has beaten include Kell Brook, Shawn Porter and Mikey Garcia. His most recent title defence for the IBF belt also saw him win the WBC title against Shawn Porter, as he beat him by split decision. This will be another huge occasion for the 30-year-old, but he will be the favourite to get the win.
