    "he's the most technical boxer errol has ever faced" - Spence trainer. What will the excuses be?

    Spence made you all look like chumps when he destroyed Brook and you still haven’t recovered. Now your new hope is a roided 135 pounder who quit against Salido and who is running from Lomachenko. Good luck with that!

    How in the world are you reading this as beinh nervous? Spences team have to hype Garcia up to trick people into thinking this isn't a complete mismatch. This happens in every high profile mismatch.

    There’s no way Robert Garcia would have taken this fight if it was a mismatch, he’s far too smart to throw Mikey to the wolves like that. Brook showed why Mikey can beat Spence. Mikey has the tools to improve on that blueprint with better defense, footwork and movement, he’ll need to fight the perfect fight but he can beat Spence.

    Spence fans are definitely worried. Especially after seeing those recent pics where Garcia is looking like he is trying a similar supplement regimen to Spence’s. They don’t like level playing fields :)

    I think the same thing. The Garcia family has been in the game for a long time. They may see something that they can exploit when they watch Spence.

    You don't need excuses when you win.

    Mikeys counter punching skills will offset Spences aggression. I expect a lower punch output from Spence in this fight due to mikeys pinpoint accuracy and balanced punch placement. Mikey.has.definitely.got.a chance.

    Everybody acting like Spence can't box. You gents are in for a rude awakening and Mikey is in for a brutal knockout.

    He was/is always against this fight. But, I guess, it's not easy to argue with Mikey.

    You're forgetting that a well known rule in boxing is that the big juicehead always beats the smaller juicehead.
    And that both doping doesn't "level the playingfield" because they aren't physically the same people, and benefit differently from chemical enhancement.

    I think it's unlikely for Garcia to pull a JMM in this case. Spence breaks him down and stops him around 7.

    I don't see anyone noticeably worried, personally. And Mikey will be the most technical boxer Spence has fought; he's a P4P talent. But size matters, ultimately.
