Spence vs Garcia ready to roll!

March 16, 2019


Tonight’s showdown is set, as Errol Spence Jr, Mikey Garcia, and the rest of the fighters made weight yesterday in Arlington, Texas, ahead of tonight’s big show at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, home of the Dallas CowBoys.

Spence (24-0, 21 KO) will defend the IBF welterweight title against Garcia (39-0, 30 KO), a four-division champion making his most dangerous and bold move up to date.

Spence weighed in at 146¼, with Garcia at 145½, both under the 147-pound limit.

The three-fight pay-per-view undercard is also in good shape, led by the return of super middleweight David Benavidez (20-0, 17 KO) against J’Leon Love (24-2-1, 13 KO). Benavidez weighed in at 167, with Love at 168¼.

Bantamweight star Luis Nery (28-0, 22 KO) is also in action, facing former super flyweight titleholder McJoe Arroyo (18-2, 8 KO). Nery, who has had weight troubles in the past, came in at the limit of 118, with Arroyo at 117¼.

The pay-per-view opener will see popular veteran heavyweight Chris Arreola (37-5-1, 32 KO) back against Jean Pierre Augustin (17-0-1, 12 KO). Arreola weighed in at 239¼, almost six pounds lighter than he was for his December win over Maurenzo Smith, which was also Arreola’s first fight in about two-and-a-half years. Augustin weighed in at 226½. He wanted to take the scales with his shoes and pants on, because it doesn’t really matter, but organizers were very much against this.
