PBC stars Errol Spence Jr and Danny Garcia are set to collide for the WBC and IBF welterweight title after both moved to confirm the fight.
The World Boxing Council then released a short statement rubberstamping the contest. “Finally…Errol Spence Jr and Danny García will clash on November 21st at a venue to be announced,” they said. “Spence will defend his WBC welterweight title against former champion Danny Garcia in a match expected to be a classic. “Both warriors made the official announcement through their social networks.”
Spence (26-0, 21 KOs) is coming off a sensational split decision victory over Shawn Porter last September. In October he suffered a serious car accident but has since fully recovered.
Danny, meanwhile, scored a decision victory last January over Ukrainian Ivan Redkach.
Also, the next challenger in line to Spence vs Garcia is likely to come from another announced match-up. Former World Boxing Council welterweight champion and number one ranked Shawn “Showtime” Porter will return to the ring on August 22 against undefeated German Sebastian Formella.
