Errol Spence thinks his unanimous decision win over Danny Garcia on Saturday night at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas establishes him as the number one welterweight in boxing.

Spence was impressive in his first fight back since being seriously injured in a car accident in the fall of 2019. ‘The Truth’ who was first to the punch all night outworked Garcia over 12 rounds and was happy to be back in the ring and the winner circle post-fight.

“The moment is surreal,” Spence said. “Coming back from the accident, I feel like I looked pretty good tonight. All training camp I felt good. I told people I didn’t want a tune-up fight. I proved to everyone that I’m the best 147-pound fighter in the world.”

Spence was full of praise for his opponent who was a live underdog heading into this fight and showed in spurts that he could hang with one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the sport.

“Danny Garcia pushed me to the limit, especially in training camp,”  Spence said. “I’ve watched him fight since he was an amateur. I knew he was a great champion and I had to be 100% ready.”

The 30-year-old admitted he felt a bit rusty after more than a year out of the ring but was happy to shake it off and prove he is still one of the best fighters in boxing.

“I had a little bit of ring rust, but I was in such great shape and took everything seriously in training so that I would not be discouraged by that,” Spence said. “I worked my jab and used my angles because that was my best move. It’s been a long year and a half, so I’m going to wind down for a week or two, then get back on it. I proved that I’m back and I’m here to stay.” (Transcribed by Boxing Scene)
