Errol Spence Will Be Ringside To Scout Mikey Garcia For Fight

According to the Los Angeles Times, IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence (24-0, 21 KOs) will be ringside on Saturday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Spence will be scouting WBC lightweight world champion Mikey Garcia (38-0, 30 KOs), who faces IBF champion Robert Easter Jr. (21-0, 14 KOs) in a high stakes unification.

In the last few weeks, Garcia has specified on several occasions that he wants to move up to the welterweight division for a fight with Spence.


A spokesman for Premier Boxing Champions told the paper that a December date has been penciled in for Spence’s next bout - and he will be ringside to watch Garcia's performance.

“We’ll see how that [Garcia-Easter] materializes,” PBC spokesman Tim Smith said. “If it’s makeable, it’ll get made.”

Garcia was very pleased after learning that Spence will be ringside to watch him fight.

“Nice! That’s a good sign and that [December date] makes it a lot easier,” Garcia said. “That’s promising. Believe me, when we get there, I’m going to turn all the doubters into believers. I didn’t know [Spence] was coming, but if he’s coming, that shows interest,” Garcia said. “He has obviously heard what I’ve been saying and is paying close attention.”

Garcia has captured world titles at featherweight, super featherweight, lightweight and junior welterweight.

His last two fights took place at 140-pounds, where he dominated Adrien Broner and Sergey Lipinets over twelve rounds.

But Spence is regarded as one of the best pound for pound fighters in the sport and many view him as the best fighter in a very loaded welterweight division.

Garcia would not be the first boxer to take the big leap, after starting in a lower weight class like featherweight, to rise up for a major fight in the welterweight division. Others, like Floyd Mayweather Jr., Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez have made similar moves after starting their career at much lower weights.

[QUOTE=chrisJS;18978073]I think Mikey only has two fights at 135 though. Two good solid wins but I think Lomachenko beating the guy who was the clear cut #1 in the division gives him a decided edge as far as claiming superiority…

[QUOTE=RJJ-94-02=GOAT;18977989]Did you watch his fight last night?? How about his destruction of Zlaticanin?? Loma is the clear P4P #1 for me, but Mikey has the superior resume at 135. Even if people don’t rate Mikey as the #1 lightweight (which…

[QUOTE=rick3262;18975994]I like Terence Crawford. He's one of my all-time favorites. Still, while Errol Spence is talking about taking on Danny Garcia, Shawn Porter, Mikey Garcia, etc., Terence Crawford is talking about Manny Pacquiao. Think Errol Spence is too big of…
