Four-weight world champion Mikey Garcia is moving up two weight classes to take on the IBF world welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. Internet sportsbook news in the US reported that the fight will be held
- at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, texas
- on March 16, 2019.
Garcia, (39-0, 30 KOs), is the clear underdog due to the assumed size and his age. However, in our predictions on Spence v Garcia, we have to give Garcia some credit. He is brave to call out the – arguably – most dangerous name available in the welterweight, Errol Spence JR.
Spence v Garcia odds:
- Spence – win – 1.23
- Garcia – win – 4
- Draw – 23

Garcia Seeks Glory across 5 weight classes
The 30-year-old Garcia has held world titles at featherweight, super featherweight, lightweight and super lightweight, amassing a record of 39 wins. Just last year, he won the IBF lightweight title against Robert Easter, and he stripped Sergey Lipinents of the IBF junior welterweight title too.
Many applaud Garcia’s willingness to challenge himself during an era when many top stars prefer not to. Should he win, he would join the likes of Mayweather, Hearns, Pacquiao, Leonard and de la Hoya in winning world titles across five weight classes. His odds are 4 at to capture victory.
Spence is bigger than Garcia
The 28-year-old Errol Spence (24-0, 21 KOs), seeks to defend the belt he won by stopping Kell Brook in 2017. This fight will be his third defense. Spence is still young, hungry and he wants to make an example out of Mikey Garcia. Spence is bigger than Garcia and that will be his main advantage in the ring, according to online sportsbooks in the US. With three-inch height and four-inch reach, Spence (1.23) is the favourite at uGObet Sportsbook.
In boxing size is always important and adds power to the fighter, but it might not save Spence from Garcia’s speed, footwork and precision. After all, Spence is not as experienced or knowledgeable in the boxing game as Mikey is.
It will be a fascinating fight between the southpaw against the conventional fighter. It will be between the body puncher against all around offensive guy. Spence v Garcia predictions see both guys to be technically skilled, but Garcia has a little bit of an edge. Should they get engaged in a dogfight a disappointing draw can also be an option with 23.
