Following a horrific car-crash in 2019, it will be Spence Jr’s first fight. Although he appears confident and is still a treacherous elite, umpteen analysts doubt his chances for what will be his comeback fight.

Former champion Andre Berto has already pictured the welterweight thriller and has favored Danny Garcia to leave with the win. However, he hailed Errol Spence Jr’s fighting mentality.

Reporter Lance Pugmire broke the news via social media, to send fight fans into a frenzy.

Speaking about the upcoming main-event, Berto said, “Spence’s confidence is going to be sky high after battling back from everything he’s gone through. But at the same time, it’s the accident that’s going to cost him in the ring against Danny Garcia.”

He continued, “Both guys are going to come out swinging and tire themselves out, but Danny’s going to bring it early and often to make Errol prove he’s fully recovered in a donnybrook. My man Garcia’s going to keep punching, and then, you know – Blammo! Garcia KO 5.”
