Errol Spence Jr. is out to prove he remains one of the best boxers in the world following a car crash in 2019 that held him out of action for more than a year.
He’ll take on Danny Garcia on Saturday night as he defends his IBF and WBC welterweight titles. His undefeated pro record (26-0, 21 KOs) is also on the line.
Garcia enters with a 36-2 career record. He has never been knocked out, losing only to Shawn Porter and Keith Thurman by judges’ decisions.
The event will be broadcast on Fox Sports PBC from AT&T Stadium, the home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys. Including preliminary fights, the card will include 10 showdowns.

Errol Spence Jr. vs. Danny Garcia live updates, results
10:01 p.m.: Next up is a 10 round welterweight showdown between Josesito Lopez and Francisco Santana. There’s never been a fight that Lopez didn’t like so this should be fun. Whether or not it goes the distance is another question entirely. We’re going to say that it won’t.
9:41 p.m.: We’re kicking off the Spence-Garcia PPV with a Miguel Flores vs. Eduardo Ramirez in a WBA World Featherweight title eliminator. Some expect this to be the best fight of the night but it’s been all Ramirez. And just as that is said, Ramirez flattens Flores in the fifth round with a right hook counter. Flores gets to his feet but he is finished and the referee rescues him from further damage. Exceptional performance from Ramirez.
