Danny Garcia will get his shot at Errol Spence in January!
Well we knew Garcia would be next but it didn’t take long to set a date!
3kingsboxing.com has learned that the newly crowned unified welterweight champion will defend his titles against former two-division world champion Danny Garcia (35-2, 21KO) on January 25 according to Mike Coppinger from The Athletic.
The fight will take place on Fox Pay-Per-View which will be Spence’s third consecutive fight as a pay per view headliner. People watching the aftermath of Spence vs Porter were taken back as Fox’s Hedi Androl introduced Garcia as the next opponent for Spence.
Nevertheless, it seems as if Garcia will be the latest to get a shot at dethroning the unbeaten two belt titleholder. The former champion has the ranking to do so as he is #1 by the WBC and #4 by the IBF.
This match-up was thought to happen maybe a year or so ago after the unified champ won the IBF strap from then champ Kell Brook. However, Garcia balked at the idea of the fight at the time, feeling as if he had warranted the opportunity although he was the champion.
Like Spence said in his post fight interview to the former two division champion, who called him out face to face “how the tables have turned.”
