A lot can change in one year. When boxing fans last saw Errol Spence Jr. in action, he had defeated Shawn Porter in a "Fight of the Year" nominee in September 2019. However, a nasty car crash and the coronavirus pandemic kept the pound-for-pound talent out of the ring for over 365 days. He’ll return to pay-per-view on Saturday night as he looks to defend his World Boxing Council and International Boxing Federation welterweight belts against Danny Garcia.
Perfect in his professional career, Spence (26-0) has established himself alongside Terence Crawford as the best boxer at 147 pounds. Spence faced some adversity in his last outing as an aggressive Porter took one judge’s scorecard in their memorable bout. Before that, Spence had little issue defeating the likes of Mikey Garcia, Kell Brook and Chris Algieri. Spence looked great on the scales and came in at 146.5 pounds.
Looking to dethrone Spence is former WBC welterweight champ Garcia (36-2). Despite recent losses to Keith Thurman and Porter, Garcia remains a top-10 fighter at the weight division. “Swift” is riding a two-fight win streak over Ivan Redkach and Adrian Granados. Garcia officially weighed in at 146.75 pounds.
Spence vs. Garcia will air live on Fox Sports pay-per-view at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
