Mikey Garcia: Errol Spence Will Get The Best of Me

By Miguel Rivera

Mikey Garcia has promised to give the best of himself when he moves up by two weight divisions challenge IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence.

The four division world champion is looking to capture another belt - against a fellow undefeated champion, who is heavily favored to win.

Garcia (39-0, 30 KOs) will challenge Spence on March 16th at AT&T Stadium in Texas.

Garcia, who holds the WBC strap at 135-pounds, will be moving up by twelve pounds to 147 to challenge Spence.

"If I do not take these risks, then I will not be rewarded," said Garcia to ESPN Deportes.

"I want to be recognized as one of the greatest and best of this generation. How can I achieve that if I do not take these risks? That's why I'm taking the biggest fight available."

"I'm excited for what's coming in a few weeks. This is the fight that I really wanted and it is, in short, the biggest challenge of my career. Fighting with the best welterweight in the division is not an easy task. Errol Spence is going to get the best out of me.

"It's something that's very special. I never thought I would be boxing in the middle of this stadium. But, this fight deserves a special place like this. We are two undefeated world champions that deserve a home like this. This fight is bigger than any other at this moment."

According to Garcia and his coach, his brother Robert, the camp has flowed in the right way with the physical and mental preparation.

Much of the work, Robert explained, has been against first-class sparring, against boxers who are even bigger than a welterweight.

"We had a great training camp and our sparring is doing a great job to prepare us for a really tough challenge," Robert said. "When the fight comes, you will see what Mikey is made of. Everyone who sees this fight will enjoy a great night of boxing."

"If he dies...he dies" Gotta love the confidence from Mikey but I just don't see how he wins on points, let alone by ko like he suggested. Definitely tuning in to see what happens though #ManDown
