Wilder, Thurman, Danny Garcia, Harrison Back Spence To Win

Only a few days remain before the first Premier Boxing Champions on FOX Sports Pay-Per-View event headlined by unbeaten welterweight world champion Errol Spence Jr. taking on undefeated four-division champion Mikey Garcia.

The contest takes place on Saturday, March 16 from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Garcia, the WBC world champion at lightweight, is moving up by two weight divisions to challenge Spence for his IBF title at 147-pounds.

Several notable fighters were asked for their opinions on the contest, and it was no surprise that almost all of them were backing Spence for victory.

The general feeling among most, is that Garcia is undersized and many expect Spence to overpower him in the fight.

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder - Both of them are my guys, but I'm leaning a little bit more to Errol Spence. Although Mikey Garcia has the skill and will to win, I have to go with Spence.

Former two division champion Danny Garcia - Mikey is a good fighter, but I think he's biting off more than he can chew by going up two weight classes.

WBC junior middleweight champion Tony Harrison - Errol Spence is too big, too physical, it's just his time. I just think it's his time, he's floating high. No stoppage either way, but I think Errol gets the job done. He's too big and too strong.

Welterweight contender Yordenis Ugas - Spence has the same level of talent but he is much stronger and bigger.

WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman - I love Mikey Garcia, I love everything that he brings into the ring. I definitely think that, in his experience in moving up in weight he's never really fought a true welterweight and he doesn't really know what it means to compete with the upper echelon level at 147. I think he's going to run into a brick wall named Errol Spence Jr.

Wouldn't be shocked if Mikey won a decision but the obvious safe pick is Spence by decision, Mikey should have enough skill to at least survive 12 rounds, but wouldnt be surprised if he hits the canvas due to a…

[QUOTE=sammybee;19576530]I like Thurman's opinion. But Mikey will shock the world if he wins.[/QUOTE] Yes it would be a great shock to everyone. I for one don't think we have to worry about being shocked.
