One of the worst accidents happened to Errol Spence prior to his fight with Danny Garcia. Many fans speculate that Spence Jr is taking a huge risk fighting Garcia and suggested to take a tune-up fight.

Errol Spence Jr was still the favorite coming to the fight with a -400 favorite betting odds. Spence even said that he did not remember what happened in the car accident but was still confident he can beat Garcia.
The fight ended in a decision where Spence most likely won 8-4 rounds which may not have had knockdowns but still dominated the fight.
Spence’s last fight was against Shawn Porter for the WBC and IBF unification bout. Shawn Porter has a win against Danny Garica but some fans think that Garcia won the fight. It was a close fight that could have gone either way.
Right of the bell, Spence was moving forward and pressing the action. He did not show any ring rust due to his long layoff which was intense to see. Danny Garcia was known to be a slow starter so he needed to adjust at first.
Garcia has had some moments where he successfully landed a counterpunch. Although in the first half of the fight, it was all mostly Spence edging the rounds. The punch stats may not have a huge margin at first but eventually punches started piling up. In the later rounds, Spence may have stepped off the gas pedal, he may have thought that he won the scorecards.
Spence has had the most punches per round landed by any other elite top welterweight which shows since he does not stop throwing punches. Meanwhile, Garcia has failed to successfully take the welterweight title for the third time.
Garcia could move back down since he had so much success prior to moving up. He has lost against Porter and Thurman but both were close fights. Errol Spence Jr once again showed that he is levels above other elite welterweights by giving a decisive win. No boxer had dominated Garcia until now.
Overall it was a fun fight that Spence needed to win to show everyone that the accident did not affect his future in boxing. Errol Spence still holds two of the four major belts in the welterweight division.
Hardcore fans are hoping that the two undefeated welterweight champions will collide soon. Terence Crawford is seeking to change promotions and PBC is the one fans are hoping for since it makes it likely he will face Errol Spence or Manny Pacquiao.
Manny Pacquiao still has not fought since his last fight against Keith Thurman but will eventually fight next year. No official announcement but most likely the Filipino Legend will seek a money fight with Conor Mcgregor.
It is a safer fight that guarantees the biggest money to make and he can also choose to fight Mikey Garcia who may be easier to beat. Errol Spence and Crawford are much bigger fighters and maybe a difficult fight for Pacquiao.
