Late in 2019, Errol Spence Jr. had a rather strong case to be considered the best boxer on the planet, pound-for-pound. He earned a split-decision win in September 2019 over Shawn Porter to unify the IBF and WBC welterweight titles. He was 26-0 with 21 KOs. Spence's career was soaring.
Then a month later, everything Spence had worked for was nearly gone.
In the early morning hours of Oct. 10, Spence, who was driving his Ferrari at a high speed, was in involved in a "horrible accident." He was ejected from the car, which flipped multiple times, but he managed to escape suffering broken bones. Now over a year later, the question for Spence is can he again thrive in the ring?
He'll try to prove that he can when he takes on Danny Garcia at AT&T Stadium in Dallas on Saturday night. The welterweight title fight headlines a pay-per-view, with the main card beginning at 9 p.m. ET.
Spence, who is ranked fourth in ESPN's pound-for-pound rankings, should face a difficult test in Garcia, a former two-division world champion. Garcia enters Saturday on a two-fight win streak and has a 36-2 career record.
