Danny Garcia Believes Manny Pacquiao vs. Errol Spence Jr. Is 50-50 Fight, Expects KO

Garcia Spence

Danny Garcia expects a close fight between Manny Pacquiao and Errol Spence Jr.

Pacquiao and Spence are set to collide in a welterweight title clash taking place August 21 in Las Vegas.

Although Pacquiao still packs a punch and is one of the best in the world at 42 years of age, many have the younger WBC and IBF title-holder Spence as the favorite going into the fight.

Not Garcia, however. That’s despite his last loss coming against Spence back in December. Instead, he believes it’s a 50-50 fight and can even envision both fighters getting the knockout.

β€œI think it’s a 50-50 fight, to be honest,” Garcia told Fighthype.com (via Boxing Scene). “I can see both of them knocking each other out. And I think this fight is not going to go the distance. I think somebody is getting knocked out. It could be either-or.

“If Manny fights the way he fought [Keith] Thurman, I believe he can stop Spence. But if Spence comes with his A-game, I think Spence can stop him with a body shot.”

One thing is for sure — it promises to be one heck of a fight.

Do you agree with Garcia?
