Weaknesses: Not a natural welterweight. How will he react to a Spence body dig? Short 5’6″ and short-armed. Ordinary footspeed. Knows how to go to the body but not a brutal body puncher like traditional Mexican champions. Tends to be a slow starter.

Errol Spence – Boxer

Strengths: Southpaw pressure fighter with excellent overall boxing acumen. Physically imposing with a strength advantage over most opponents. One punch knockout in either meat cleaver keeps foes honest at all times. Well-balanced with tight hand placement on defense. Very instinctual with effective head movement, shoulder shimmy’s and parries. Devastating bodypuncher with excellent accuracy and punch placement. Sharp boxing brain with ability to fight at every range and make in-fight adjustments. Purple-hearted stamina as a result of a rigorous training camp with hundreds of sparring rounds. Despite his tremendous power “The Truth’s” ability to finish with a high killer instinct is on par with his heavy hands.

Weaknesses: Good hand-speed but not lighting quick. Can he keep up with Garcia’s fast hands and not load up in an effort to knock him out? Best fighters he has beaten were at a B+ level (Kell Brook and Lamont Peterson). Despite physical strength can be backed up with pressure as he was against Kell Brook.
