For Spence Jr., who holds an impeccable record of 20-0, 21 KOs, this December 5 fight will be his first appearance since he was involved in a horrible car accident in October last year. Spence Jr. will fight again in front of his hometown crowd at AT&T Stadium to give a masterful display of his performance. The last time Spence Jr. has fought at that stadium to the cheers of the local crowd was in March of last year when he outpointed four-division champion Mikey Garcia to a unanimous decision victory.
“Having my comeback fight be in front of my hometown fans at AT&T Stadium is added motivation and a dream come true,” said Spence Jr. who hails from Dallas, Texas in an interview. “It means even more because I’m going up against a great champion in Danny Garcia. I know people are looking out to see if I’ve lost a step or won’t be at my best, but I’m 100% focused and everything is on point in training camp. I just can’t wait to go out there on December 5 and put on a show.”
Meanwhile, Danny Garcia has expressed his enthusiasm and can’t wait to get back in the ring again for his second fight of 2020. “I’m very excited to get back in the ring,” said Garcia in an interview. “This is going to be my second fight of 2020, even though it’s been a crazy year with the pandemic and everything. I’m glad we’re finally getting back to where we were and that we’ll be able to bring this fight to the fans.
Garcia also emphasizes the importance of this fight with Spence Jr. to him, as it is a great opportunity for him to regain his place at the top of the division and become a five-time world champion. “This matchup is a mega-fight unification bout. It’s my opportunity to reclaim my spot at the top in this division and become a five-time world champion. Training and sparring has been going really well. I’m extremely prepared for this already and it can’t get here soon enough. Come December 5, I will be crowned unified champion!”
