Derrick James, coach of the WBC / IBF welterweight champion (66.7 kg), American Errol Spence Jr. (26-0-0, 21 KO), said that his ward began to spar in preparation for a fight with a mandatory challenger and compatriot Danny Garcia (36-2-0, 21 KO) and for the first time since a car accident.
“I am not worried about the fact that he hasn’t sparred for so long. I’ve been watching him all this time, and his timing, his reaction is in place. Sparring, in our case, is just a continuation of what we have been working on before. how many blows it won’t get in. That’s all.
Look, we’re talking about Errol Spence. He always goes through at least 10-12 rounds. And he’s in shape. Let’s just say he’s able to go through as many rounds as his sparring partners can give, “said James.
