Video: Mikey Garcia Reacts To Suffering First Defeat To Spence

Errol Spence Jr. had to go the distance to defend his IBF welterweight title for the third time. Still, the outcome was never in doubt for one of the world’s best pound-for-pound boxers.

Spence unanimously outpointed previously undefeated challenger Mikey Garcia, a skilled boxer who moved up two weight classes for what he considered a legacy fight Saturday night.

Spence improved to 25-0 after all three judges awarded him every round. One card was 120-107, and the other two were 120-108.

Garcia took a pounding but never went down. He spent the later rounds blocking punches instead of throwing them and was never able to find the opening for a fight-changing response.

Not a word from Robert Garcia wearing the look on his face ‘I told you blood,not to do this’ now they’re exposed. It going to be a lot harder for Mikey to bounce back with a relevant opponent

Frame wise it was the equivalent of Spence fighting at Supermiddle.Tall order for a 40 year old Pac man too.
