Spence was outlanding Garcia in each of the last six rounds. After 12 rounds, the judges scored the fight 117-111 and 116-112 twice, all for Spence.

Spence (27-0, 21 KOs) had a 187 to 117 advantage in punches landed, according to CompuBox. Spence controlled much of the action with his jab, landing 84 of them to slowly damage the left eye of Garcia.

Garcia admits that Spence's jab was better than he anticipated and it created a lot of problems for him in the fight.

"His jab was rangy and threw my timing off a bit," said Garcia. "That was the key to the fight. Everything else I feel like I adapted to. The jab was the only thing that was better than expected."

Garcia (36-3, 21 KOs), known as a supreme counter puncher, picked his spots against the unrelenting attack from Spence, having occasional success with his counter right hook and body shots. However, Spence was the more accurate fighter, connecting on 26% of his shots to 17% for Garcia.  

Spence was able to nullify Garcia's biggest weapon - the left hook, which forced the Philadelphia fighter to throw more right hands.

"I was trying to be more active," said Garcia. "He did a good job taking away what I wanted to do. Everyone is looking for my left hook, so I thought my right hand could be the difference. I had some success going to the body with it. When two champions fight, one guy is going to be better on the night."
