Errol Spence has “screenshotted” his doubters, he’ll gloat after Nov.21

By Allan Fox: Sounding like he’s got a chip on his shoulder, Errol Spence Jr says he’s taken “screenshots” of all his doubters in the media that are giving Danny Garcia a chance of beating him on November 21

The idea is that Spence (26-0, 21 KOs) will make sure to gloat afterward when he defeats Danny (36-2, 21 KOs). Boxing fans and members of the media have grave doubts about whether Spence is physically ready from his horrible car crash last October.

Spence was injured in the crash involving his high-priced Ferrari Spyder in Dallas, Texas, on Oct.10, and he wound up with lacerations and broken teeth. Spence has gone through a lot with his car crash, and it’s unthinkable that he’s about to enter the ring next month to face knockout artist Danny Garcia in his first fight back.

Is Spence making a mistake fighting Danny Garcia?

It’s an insane move on Spence’s part, and you have to believe that his management likely attempted to talk him out of taking this risky fight. Danny has the kind of power that could separate Spence from his senses from the first punch he lands in the match, and he’s fighting him at the ideal time.

That’s the outward stuff that happened to Errol. We don’t now if Spence’s brain was affected by the car crash.

Promoter Lou DiBella said Spence was traveling at 150 mph when he crashed his Ferrari, which cartwheeled several times before it came to a stop in a mangled heap of unrecognizable wreckage on the road.

IBF/WBC welterweight champion Spence will be defending against the former two-division world champion Garcia on pay-per-view at a still to be determined location.

Spence sounds like he’s in serious denial about what he went through with his car crash, and Errol needs to understand why people think he’s going to lose. It’s not that the media thought Danny Garcia would have beaten him a year ago. Almost no one would have given Danny ‘Swift’ a ghost of a chance had he fought Spence BEFORE his car crash, but things are different now.

Errol chose not to take a tune-up

That car crash changes everything. What the 30-year-old Errol went through in his accident is hard on his body, and he’s rushing things by going straight into a fight against a talented fighter like Garcia without taking at least one tune-up to make sure his mental faculties are still intact.

All the recent videos of Spence on Youtube in which he appears highly agitated, it doesn’t seem like the same guy as before the accident.

With what Spence went through with his car crash, would it be a surprise if Danny Garcia knocks him out on November 21? I don’t think so. Spence is lucky to be alive after that crash, and he could be bitting off more than he can chew in facing Garcia.

The Philadelphia native Garcia is arguably the biggest puncher in the 147-pound division today, and he’s got the kind of power that could get Spence out of there quickly.

Spence could be kicking himself later for not taking the tune-up after if he loses to Garcia, and he’ll only have himself to blame for it.

Had Spence done the reasonable thing by fighting a scrub or two, then he would know if he’s physically fit to take on a dangerous puncher like Danny Garcia. But with the things are now, Spence could be in trouble on November 21.
