Spence on Garcia-Porter: ‘Danny Garcia on that one, by decision’

IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr.(23-0, 20 KOs) has some mandatory business he needs to handle on Saturday night as he battles Carlos Ocampo at Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas on Showtime.

After Ocampo, Spence hopes to get the winner of Danny Garcia-Shawn Porter, which was ordered by the WBC, and reportedly will happen late summer or early fall.

If and when that fight happens, Spence expects Garcia to get the nod:

“I don’t know. I think Danny Garcia could pull it out,” Spence said during a conference call on Tuesday. “He doesn’t do anything spectacular but he has great timing, good fundamentals and mostly really good timing. He just pulls it out. Whenever we think he’s going to lose the fight, he ends up winning the fight so I’ll go with Danny Garcia on that one, by decision.”
The SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING telecast begins at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT and features super bantamweight world champion Daniel Roman defending his belt against unbeaten Moises “Chucky” Flores and former world champion Javier Fortuna clashing with Adrian Granados in a 10-round 140-pound special attraction.
