IBF World Champion, WBC Welterweight Champion Errol Spence returns to the sport. On December 5, he will enter the ring against former division champion Danny Garcia. Spence has been away for over a year. The reason for this was a car accident in the fall of 2019, and then the Covid 19 pandemic.
In an interview with the British tabloid “The Sun” Spence talked about his plans for the future, in particular, mentioned who he sees (of course, if he wins) as the next opponent after Garcia. Spence says he foresees his mega-fight with Canelo Alvarez in the future: “I would certainly welcome the fight with Canelo. And if it happens, it will be a huge event for Cowboys Stadium, especially if we are back to 100% attendance by then. . This is another mega fight I could have. I could have a lot of mega fights. It takes a lot of pounds to get down to 147. I won’t have a problem fighting 160. “
However, it is clear that much more needs to happen before Spence meets Canelo. For example, Spence has to win the fight against Garcia, and Canelo has to settle legal problems with DAZN and Golden boy. And to do both will not be easy.
