Fox Sports Pbc Ppv World Welterweight Championship Fight Spence Vs Garcia Dallas Usa 16 March 2019

In one of the most anticipated and intriguing fights in a long time, IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr (25-0, 21 KOs) and Mikey Garcia (39-1, 30 KOs) squared off at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday night in front of 47,525 boisterous fans.

If you entered the stadium Team Garcia or had your doubts about Spence Jr., you quickly realized why he is called The Truth. Spence peppered his opponent from all angles, moving backward and forward, and it seemed as though he could not miss with his left hand.

Garcia (39-1, 30 KOs) never stopped trying to turn the tide against the Texan, but Spence was virtually ideal for 12 rounds. Spence turned up the heat in the latter stages of the welterweight contest and battered Garcia badly in the ninth round, with one judge scoring it 10-8.

The 29-year-old was arrested in February 2018 after a woman claimed Broner touched her butt, thigh and "private parts" without her permission outside of a Louis Vuitton store. With that, he retained his IBF 147-pound title.

Spence Jr. and Manny Pacquiao met in the center of the ring which could be the next mega fight at Jerry World as it has been rumored. Neither a date nor a location has been set.

It was the first time Spence had to go the distance in his last 12 fights. That's a feat no one has done recently. "I am hoping to be back here, soon".

Paul Scholes resigns as Oldham manager, gives reason
I personally was always supportive of any decisions Paul made or consulted me on, reassuring him that he was the man in charge. I have been in Dubai over the last couple of weeks and actually at ease knowing that he was in charge.

Chants of "Mikey!, Mikey!" broke out in the second and third rounds, but those faded away as Spence kept punching and the crowd instead responded to hard shots many more for the champion than the challenger.

Jones and Prescott even stepped into the ring with Floyd Mayweather before the main event.

Previously undefeated Garcia, 31, suffered his first loss in 40 professional fights.

Garcia grew up around Oxnard, California, where the Cowboys hold part of their preseason training camp each year. Pacquiao won two title bouts at the Cowboys stadium in 2010, when he beat Joshua Clottey for the WBO welterweight crown and later Antonio Margarito for vacant WBO super welterweight title.

A Pacquiao-Spence fight however will come down as one of the biggest fights in 2019 and will surely become a Pay-Per-View blockbuster.

Spence said he could be ready to fight again then.
