Pound for pound boxing stars Mikey Garcia and Errol Spence throw down for the IBF welterweight championship next month in Texas and hype is starting to build ahead of a fascinating bout.
Two undefeated young champions recognized already as pound for pound talents in the sport of boxing, it isn’t often you see undefeated fighters this young and in their prime clash.
When it happens it’s a bit special. Hence the positive reaction from fight fans so far.
Over the weekend Spence warned Garcia that he dares him to bring his talk of knockouts into the ring come fight night:

The interesting thing about the fight is that Garcia is stepping up an entire two weight classes to take on Spence.
Something boxing history has told us never really works out for anyone so he has to be commended for that type of bravery.
If he were to pull it off it would be one of the most famous wins at world level in recent years.
The bout takes place on March 16th at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
