    In his lastest interviews his speech is noticeably slow and slurred.

    I think that's just how he talks.

    Nobody know how well he will respond to punches. Coming back to fight Garcia takes testicular fortitude, but may end up being a bad move by him and his camp once the fight is over. Garcia is a real live dog in this fight. Warrr Garcia!

    Everyone says thats how hes always talked, but just imo, Ive seen my fair share of Spence interviews pre crash and to me he does seem off.

    But... time will tell. Hope I am wrong.

    Well think of it, a car crash like that has a high chance of giving most people a tbi. Now I’m imagine being dehydrated and coming off a night of taking a lot of hits to the head, he was also drunk which makes you more susceptible to a brain injury. It’ll actually be a miracle if he’s the same man he was before

    Pbc success going forward hinges on spence. If García was a threat he wouldn t be fighting him. This is Haymon we’re talking about.

    Garcia arguably beat both Thurman and Porter.he could virtually be an undefeated fighter going into the fight with spence, depending on who u ask.

    What if Spence's punch resistance is even better? He's like, "Buddy, I've been hit by the street coming at me at 260mph, I can definitely take that powderpuff you call a punch." That would be some Terminator s--t!

    He's got a mouth of false teeth or implants. He's not gonna speak the same because of those alone

    It's hard to say. Dude's always been sleepy-eyed and he's always been a slow talker.

    He didn't arguably beat Thurman. He did arguably beat Porter, though.
