Spence Jr. rolled over his Ferrari in that incident and fought a tough battle with life outside the ring. So tough, that his boxing career was also put at stake.

However, he successfully overcame the adversary and is ready to defend his WBC and IBF welterweight titles against ‘Swift’ in a main-event clash.

That said, Garcia tagged his opponent as “brave” for being able to get back the fighting spirit.

Errol Spence Jr. is still unbeaten inside the ring which gives Garcia an opportunity to land a major upset. ‘Swift’ is ready to do that but similarly has his respect for ‘The Truth.’

Danny Garcia said, “In the beginning I was, I ain’t gonna lie. You know. I was like whoa. You know this guy (Errol Spence Jr.), he is brave. But, you know, the doctor said you can fight, and he feels physically ready, mentally ready. Hey, you do what you want to do.”

He added, “But you know, I had a great camp. I know, I am ready. So, I can’t really worry about him.”
