Errol Spence Jr., Mikey Garcia on Weight for Mega Fight



It’s the biggest boxing event of the year hands down and it’ll take
another massive matchup down the road to top it, and thankfully the
entire event has been greenlit. Errol Spence Jr. will climb through
the ropes on Saturday night inside AT&T Stadium in Arlington,
Texas, to stand toe-to-toe with Mikey Garcia in the main event on
pay-per-view, and both men were on target at today’s weigh-ins.

Garcia (39-0, 30 KOs) has been one of the best boxers in the sport
for years and has already captured world titles at featherweight,
super featherweight and lightweight. He’s tacked names like Orlando
Salido, Adrien Broner, Sergey Lipinets and Juan Carlos Burgos onto
his resume and the Ventura, Calif., native seems like a surefire
Hall of Famer once his career is over. Garcia is moving up two
weight classes to face Spence Jr., arguably the most talented
opponent of his career thus far. As expected, Garcia was on weight
and came in at 145.5 pounds.

Spence Jr. (24-0, 21 KOs) has also been a killing machine,
similarly destroying everything in his path. At 29 (two years
younger than Garcia), Spence Jr. has a different style than his
upcoming opponent, but the result is always the same; a one-sided
victory usually ending in knockout. “The Truth” has conquered the
likes of Lamont Peterson, Kell Brook and Chris Algieri and looks to
defend his IBF welterweight title against Garcia. The Texas-based
champ weighed in officially at 146.25 pounds.

The action goes live on pay-per-view at 9 p.m. ET.

Spence Jr. vs. Garcia weigh-in results:

Errol Spence, Jr. (146.25) vs. Mikey Garcia (145.5)
David Benavidez (167) vs. J’Leon Love (168.25)
McJoe Arroyo (117.25) vs. Luis Nery (118)
