“All the finance to Errol Spence,” says Garcia, who remarkably didn’t land more than 10 punches in every single round. “He’s the simple truth. He’s for certain. He create an incredible fight and executed the gameplan well. He kept the length at his favor. I wasn’t able to find my rhythm going and the man did what he to perform. I could to make adjustments but he managed to keep executing the gameplan within the favor.”

Spence: 'It will be my honor to deal with [Pacquiao] next'

Manny Pacquiao climbs via the ropes and congratulates Spence, then wanders on to take photos some with Garcia’s team. Spence basically falls over himself trying to get Pacquiao go back over for his in-ring interview, where he challenges the eight-division champion into a fight within this same stadium this year.

“Tell Manny Pacquiao to go back over here,” Spence says. “It would be my honor to fight him next.”

Says Pacquiao: “Yeah, why don’t you? We’ll provide the fans a fantastic fight. I’m so thrilled to be here in Dallas and i am hoping I am back here soon.”

Round 12

Spence is hell of an fighter. He just keeps coming, attempting to close the show. Numerous same in the final round: a boxing clinic. Garcia learns how to protect himself, to his credit. But his corner has done him no favors in any respect to keep him on this fight. 120-108: an extensive whitewash. Ain’t likely to be no rematch. Don’t want one. Life for any official scorecards.

Round 11

CompuBox says Spence is outlanding Garcia by the 282-63 margin through 10 rounds. Garcia can’t win this fight. Spence is definitely teeing off and it also seems everything remains will be the moral victory of going the gap with the elite champion in a higher weight. I really believe this fight needs to be stopped. The referee is taking a close look. Garcia has to be truly buzzed, even so is perfectly one-sided. This is the reason weight classes exist.

Round 10

Spence looks to end the battle, bouncing one punch after another off Garcia, that is too brave for his own good. Spence is throwing your entire arsenal at his opponent: hooks, straight punches and uppercuts on the head and the. And they are all landing or coming close enough absolutely nullify whatever attacking instinct Garcia leaves. Another round for Spence.

Spence isn’t too far off forward with urgency, throwing and landing punches mixed with. Garcia is beginning to consider a growing number of punches within the chin. Spence is battering Garcia into the ropes with unanswered combinations. Garcia is busy. The perfect time to stop this. The outcome is bound. Never let it’s an evening Garcia loses something he can’t recover.

Round 8

This is an utterly dominant perfomance. Spence is pouring it on but never within the expense of his composure. Even if Spence influences pocket, Garcia cannot find the openings to counter. We’re eight rounds in and it’s like Garcia hasn’t even got started. He’s going to demand a stoppage to win possibly at this aspect that might seem impossible for Garcia, who’s no big knockout puncher to start with. The sole remaining question is whether Spence is content to work out your clock for that lopsided decision or perhaps if he needs to step on the gas and obtain Mikey due to there.

Round 7

Clearly, Garcia has to take risks if text messaging isn’t have got chance, because what’s experienced until now is not going to be enough. Not really close. Spence’s four-inch advantages tall and reach were always imposing written down, but his opportunity to use every millimeter of them so skillfully is something to behold. A lot of the same while in the seventh round. The good news is Spence is mixing from the uppercut into his combinations, which can be coming with greater frequency. Garcia doesn’t are at risk of being badly hurt, even so the workouts are beginning feel slightly repetitive and pointless. You wonder the amount longer Garcia’s brother and trainer, Robert, will permit it to keep.

Round 6

Spence is set in total command, mixing up that straight left between hooks and straight punches beautifully. He’s using right jab so effectively and beginning to stick to it up with unpredictable left hands that will be moving Garcia back. Spence lands a crushing right hook and Garcia fires back, but can’t do one thing to stem the tide. Garcia has taken a beating. We have it six rounds to zero with the scheduled halfway point.

Round 5

Garcia, in the behest of his trainer and brother Robert Garcia, immediately springs in the corner to pressure his opponent. He has to toss the taller, longer man off balance so he is able to land something. Anything. But because Garcia ventures to the pocket, Spence is countering with pinpoint accuracy. I’ll show you, this really is one-way traffic to date. Garcia’s inspired begin to the 5th has become erased as Spence will continue to pepper away that has a number of punches to the head and the body. Garcia’s face start to show the toll with the action because retreats to his stool following your bell.

Round 4

Spence lands some more left hands, mixing on the hook and also the directly to keep Garcia guessing all while staying active with the jab. He’s scoring quite effectively and keeping the action down the middle of the ring. Spence’s range is giving Garcia big problems: he’s landing the crisper and more telling blows with volume and variety. Garcia can’t find a way close the length so the guy can counter. CompuBox says Spence has landed 67 of 265 punches (25%) as compared with 22 of 106 for Garcia (26%).

Round 3

Spence is collecting the pace from the third and start to bring Garcia’s tight guard down which has a series of sharp body shots, followed by a left along the middle along with a left hook. He’s beating the smaller man towards the punch. Garcia can’t land anything of substance. Best round to date for Spence.

Round 2

Spence lands a straight left into the head in early stages, the earliest solidly landed power punch within the night. The scale advantage is rather clear beneath lights. Garcia still endeavoring to negotiate his way inside for countering opportunities. Spence misses which includes a right leaving a job opening for Garcia but he can’t capitalize. Garcia is showing different angles and beginning time his left hook but it is not found whatever target yet. Garcia walking Spence down somewhat oftentimes and commencing to figure things out, it seems. Seem round versus first but we’ll score it to Spence on higher quantity of punches thrown and landed.

Round 1

The bell! The southpaw Spence immediately attempts to establish his right jab, more like a rangefinder. Garcia sitting back looking for opportunity to counter. Spence continues the probing jabs in to the partner on the round and Garcia hasn’t thrown much else, simply measuring the duty before him. Spence finally follows a right jab having a straight left to your body that lands but doesn’t hurt his opponent. Spence easily takes the outlet round on activity, throwing and landing more punches.

Spence is really a soft-spoken personality and hasn’t done much talking within the build-up to tonight’s fight. But don’t permit mild-mannered disposition fool you: the 2012 US Olympian has finished his last 11 opponents into the distance, the third-longest active knockout streak among current world champions (after Artur Beterbiev’s 13 and Gervonta Davis’s 12).

“I’m always calm, that’s just my demeanor,” Spence said at Wednesday’s final presser. “I could discuss with Mikey Garcia in the locker room prior to a fight then end up and knock his depart. I’m always on go. I’m naturally in this way. I have been prepared to go for 2 months. I’m sick of seeing him and i am just ready for fight night.”

Spence is a taller, sturdier man by a great deal. His four-inch advantages tall and reach are realities not lost within the oddsmakers, but neither man believes will have them the deciding factor.

“The size difference won’t matter,” Spence said. “Skill for skill and talent for talent, I’m more dominant than him atlanta divorce attorneys aspect. I’ll beat him at anything he really wants to do. In theory he’s the most difficult opponent currently, but once all of us inside ring we’ll discover.”

He added: “This win makes me pound-for-pound number one. Mikey carries a great record in addition to a big fan base and so i think that winning this fight turns me towards a star. Everyone wants to consider Floyd Mayweather’s place as the face of boxing, and that puts me on track for being the head of boxing as well as best fighter worldwide.”
