Who gets his hand raised in Errol Spence Jr. vs Danny Garcia?

Errol Spence Jr. is known for his durability inside the ring. While it will be interesting to see how much has his body recovered from the horrific accident, the chances are that Spence Jr. is still the old fighter we have loved to adore for all these years.

He has the ability to control the pace of the fight. However, in any situation where he can’t dictate the pace, he never shies away from going deep and taking the fight head-on. He is an impeccable boxer with credible skills and an unorthodox style that always keeps his opponent guessing.
