    Spence Jr by stoppage, I have a feeling this ends with body shots.

    Garcia hasn't got the chin or the body to cope with the power that will be thrown at him.


    I like them both, rate them both but Spence Jr will just prove too big and powerful.

    I don’t think Garcia has any advantages in this fight. Spence can hurt him with one punch, and is a good finisher. Or Spence can break Mikey down and stop him in the second half of the fight.

    A few points to make. Reach advantage is not the only thing Spence has over Garcia. Size, strength , power , jab , speed and technical skills are also in Spence’s favour. The other key advantage is mindset mentality. Garcia is going to wish he is not in with Spence during the fight. You mention Kell Brook and you conveniently forget that Brook was the best Welterweight in the World a big physical skillful powerful Welterweight and Spence in his first World title fight. He took this fight in Brook’s hometown in front of 30,000 fans and made Brook quit! That should tell you a lot about Spence Jr.

    I think Spence is going to run over Mikey who got too big for his boots and let his ego run wild.

    So what if Spence fought GGG? GGG did not put Brook on the floor. Spence is a better fighter than GGG.

    Spence does not have speed over Garcia. No way - Garcia is the faster puncher and is faster on his feet. I also dont agree with mindset mentality. Nothing suggests Spence is mentally stronger than Garcia

    U overestimating spence & underestimating Garcia, do so at your peril. If you think spence has jab, speed, tech skills and mindset over Garcia then so be it, we will see very soon, ps brook was semi shot when spence fought him and gave him fits.

    If Mikey and Spence were naturally the same size I would have zero qualms in picking Mikey to whoop Spence's ass and the reason why that is because he is simply the better, far more proven and accomplished fighter of the two of them. And don't ask me what Mikey would do to him if the roles were reversed and he was the one who held the kind of size advantage over Spence that Spence holds over him because it would only end one way via brutal HL reel KO ala Zlaticanin. Mikey is a fantastic fighter, Spence is hideously overrated. But size matters and even a 7lb weight advantage is a lot when your opponent is a big puncher at a weight you've never fought at and one your whiskers have never been tested at, let alone by a big puncher at that weight.

    Lipinets has a better chin than spence, and he wasnt eating the right hands the way spence will(down the shoot, flush). That was the Garcia that has been hitting the heavybag, jogging and sparring exclusively to prepare for fights. If you look earlier in his career he is much stronger and more explosive when he was doing more of the training expected of a pro boxer. Mikey has a high ko percentage not from a pressure style like spence, he is a very hard hitter. And if snac qnd the s&c he hired did their job he'll have enough power to badly hurt spence with a single shot.

    Garcia by SD. I think he pulls off a once in a lifetime performance and has everyone's jaws dropping.
