Errol Spence Jr. will look to do what no other fighter has done — defeat Danny Garcia decisively.
Spence will compete for the first time since his car accident earlier this year when he defends his welterweight titles against Garcia on December 5.
“The Truth” last won the WBC title after a split decision win over Shawn Porter in December last year in what was a dog fight that lasted the full 12 rounds. And he intended for it to be that way after previously outboxing Mikey Garcia to defend his IBF title.
“With the Shawn Porter fight I could’ve beat him easily on the outside like I did with Mikey Garcia but my whole game plan was just to fight,” explained Spence Jr. during an episode of First Take on ESPN (via Boxing Insider). “I wanted to show people that I could beat him on the inside and that’s what I did.
“With Mikey Garcia, I wanted to show people that I could box because people said he has a better boxing IQ than me so I showed people that I could box.”
As for Danny Garcia? Spence plans on putting a one-sided beating on the former unified light welterweight champion.
After all, it would speak volumes considering the only two defeats for “Swift” in his professional boxing career have come in close decision losses.
“With this fight, I’m going to show that I’m just an all-around better fighter,” Spence added. “On the inside, outside, with the jab, combination, hooks – whatever you want to do in the ring I can do better than Danny Garcia.
“Danny Garcia’s resume, especially at 140, was great. He was a unified champion and things like that. He’s a great fighter and I feel like nobody has beaten him decisively and really put a hurting on him or you know, punished him. For me to do that, that would speak volumes. That’s what I’m looking to do. I’m looking to have this a one-sided beating.”
