That said wouldn’t mind if he did.
He’s by far gonna be Spence toughest challenge to date.
Whitaker wasn't the average ww as you stated
Some people will disagree with you but i think you're right. Spence is a boxer-puncher who likes to stay in front of his opponents and assert his dominance behind his methodical skills and thudding attack.
Plainly, he likes to let his hands go in front of his opponents. He's not a runner. He's not a clincher. He's almost exactly the type of guy Garcia likes to fight. Garcia will have plenty of opportunities to get his shots in. If Spence's reflexes and whiskers are still up to the task he probably beats him. If not he could very well lose.
I like Garcia... and i'm probably hoping against hope here... but i hope he's evolved a little bit since we last saw him. For as naturally talented as he is it's a damn shame that he's not a more well rounded boxer. His ability to throw hands almost demands it. It's criminal that he lets guys get away with the gamesmanship that they get away with against him. He should be knocking all of these guys barring Pacquiao --and maybe Spence -- out imo (mini rant over).
Boy i don't buy that for a second
He will not give Spence a tougher fight than Shawn Porter did and probably won't give him a tougher fight than Kell Brook did
That’s a good insightful post.
All Garcia is really missing to make him great is a little workrate. Too much waiting on that perfect left hook. Throw the damn jab and cross a little more.
Garcia tends to rise to the level of his competition, work rate wise. Usually he is content to box and not be the aggressor unless he's got a guy hurt. But if his opponent is aggressive (Khan, Matthyse, Thurman), Garcia will fire off everything he's got when they're within range. It looks a bit wild but he manages to land square a lot during these exchanges and that's usually how he has hurt opponents in the past.
When Garcia was coming up, he had a great right hand which you rarely see anymore. He has a decent jab too.
Fun fact: Danny Garcia has six toes on one of his feet. Performance enhancer imo.
You could be right with Porter.
I do think he’ll give him more trouble than Special K.
Correct. He waits on his opponents to lead and in essence create the counter punching openings for him. Not sure if it’s a mental thing or just that he lacks the skill to take something off his punches in order to draw return fire and then counter.
He used to be more well rounded. He became left hook happy after the Khan fight.
That was a long time ago tho. He has a good right hand but he sits on counters too long. His hook is amazing tho. Weird but super effective. I get why he'd fall in love w/ it.
That's a pretty cool fight.
The fact he's coming back from a bad car crash should probably be weighed in. Assuming Spence is the same fighter (it would be pretty amazing if he was), then I think Garcia still might be a tougher fight than Brook if for no other reason than his mental toughness and durability. Porter is probably the tougher fight, though.
Also the bones in Danny's face stay in place better than Kell's and against Spence that's important. I will say tho, that Danny's face does tend to blow up fairly easily and even tho he hasn't seemed to have a huge problem w/ it throughout his career, against an offensive beast like E, it is something to take into consideration, imo.
Now, it's also not unfair to make the assumption that Spence, who had mouth/face lacerations at the very least from the car crash, iirc, might also have issues w/ his face in terms of taking damage.
Both of these guys are gonna be pretty beaten up by the end of this one either way, imo.
Yeah, I don’t get this logic. He’ll sure as hell give Spence a tougher fight than Mikey Garcia did, and that’s before according for the fact that Spence was in an almost fatal car crash. I’ll be shocked if DSG doesn’t give Spence a real fight, if not win
