R1- As expected, Spence is out on the front foot and is active with the jab. Also as expected, the jab is preventing Garcia from getting much done. Garcia is trying to load up counters and has limited success by doing so. Meanwhile, Spence is landing double jabs to the face, effectively pinpointing the straight left to the body or looping left to the head behind it.

R2- The double jab from Spence is still scoring and preventing Garcia from getting going. While it’s only thrown occassionally, Spence is really cranking the looping left, but it lands with good accuracy. The commentators over exaggerate when Garcia catches Spence off balance towards the end. The best punch that Garcia lands is actually after the bell, but Spence tkaes it just fine.

R3- While still doing most of his scoring off of the jab, Spence focuses a bit more on the body in this round than he did in the last two rounds. Spence is also taking advantage of times when Garcia positions himself awkwardly by getting around him to land punches, and at one point knocks Garcia off balance with a looping left before he could release a counter.

R4- I don’t trust CompuBox’s assessment of the punch stats being close. Garcia ups his output, but he is only able to land one shot at a time on Spence when throwing combinations and is missing most of his potshots. Both of these inaccuracies on behalf of his offense are due to the underrated defense of Spence. As opposed to Garcia’s occassional one shot, Spence isn’t having much problems landing three shots at a time on Garcia, as he keeps his jab in Garcia’s face and Garcia’s back in the corner, and following him out of it with hooks to the body. No matter the type of head movement Garcia tries to utilize, Spence is still able to find him whether it’s with his jab, or by catching Garcia with an uppercut when he crouches. Sharp round for Spence.

R5- As they go shot for shot in this round, it’s interesting to see how easily Spence is able to stay a step ahead of Garcia. While walking through Garcia’s offense by catching most of it on his gloves, he is still delivering combos to his body, several jabs and occasional lefts upstairs, and timing the left uppercut whenever Garcia dips down. He does crack Garcia with a big left to the side of the head early, but Garcia takes it well.

R6- They take the fight to the phone booth briefly, and Spence dominates it with an array of hooks to the body. Right after, he catches Garcia coming in with an overhand left. Spence is seemingly sitting down on his body shots, and the left eye of Garcia is showing damage from Spence’s right jab. The commentary has resorted to reacting to blocked shots from Garcia.

R7- Spence is doubling up to the body and head with his right hook and straight left. The jab of Spence is making Garcia dip down still, and Spence throws a counter each time. Already outscored through the round, Garcia lands a few counter rights late, but Spence utilizes some head movement and counters him several times.

R8- The power shots to the body from Spence are unable to miss, as he is able to trap Garcia on the ropes and unload barrages to his ribcage and midsection. Garcia has mild success with his counters, but his single shots are not nearly enough to overshadow the hard combinations of Spence. Garcia’s face looks more marked up than ever at this point. Another good round for the champion.

R9- Upon getting dominated for eight rounds in a row, Garcia would finally make it a fight for Spence for a bit. While Spence is having success with his jab and body work, Garcia is seemingly the one pushing the pace for once. His countering is now more accurate, as he is able to get through the guard of Spence with his right hand for a change, and he even starts to score with some body shots of his own.

R10- While it does seem as if Spence has stepped off the gas in the last round and this one, Garcia does the right thing by taking advantage. When in close range, Garcia is matching Spence punch for punch to the body, and even outlanding him by a bit. Garcia is also able to have success with his jab and left hook for the first time in the fight, and he lands a big counter right hand that he had been looking for all night, but Spence reacts to it well. Best round in the fight for Danny Garcia without a doubt.

R11- Spence picks the pace and pressure back up in this round, walking Garcia down and leaning on him, while maintaining a high output with solid accuracy. As Spence lands most of his combos to the body, he is effectively finishing them off with right hooks or left hands to the head. Spence does lose his mouthpiece at the end of the round (unclear how) and turns his attention to it, and it’s ironic how the same would happen and come to somewhat haunt him in his next fight.

R12- Still following Garcia around the ring, Spence seemingly tries to load up on some bigger shots. He is unable to land any detrimental blows on Garcia, but he is still scoring plentifully, responding to everything Garcia does with his own shots. Garcia puts together a short rally at the end, but Spence evades it with effective upper body movement. Just like that, Spence proves that he is back and as good as ever, totally unaffected by the car accident (and it’s a wonder that he even survived). Spence proves doubters wrong, coming back to immediately fight a top ten guy in the division at the time, schooling him in the process. While Garcia had never beat a great name at welterweight and had arguably seen better days, I still believe Spence wins this fight ten times out of ten when analyzing the styles. Garcia looks human against a good workrate and jab alike as well as when he is forced backwards. Put the three together to an even higher degree to make Spence, and this fight was a virtual kryptonite for him. Nobody had ever been able to beat up and outclass Garcia this clearly before, and I don’t see how a few think it was close at all. People point out that Thurman (who also clearly won despite what some say) could have done better than Spence if he didn’t take rounds off, but the only two rounds I even saw Garcia win were when Spence appeared to have stepped off of the gas. The nicest thing that I can say about Danny’s performance is that he clearly did better than the last Garcia that faced Spence by default. This win was so clear that Danny and Angel couldn’t even cry “robbery” like they did after the Thurman and Porter fights. The jab was too much for Garcia to begin with and the body work was icing on the cake. Spence also beat Garcia in his own game of counterpunching, consistently following Garcia on the way out with hooks, and throwing left handed power shots whenever Garcia ducked his head down. I also believe CompuBox was off and that Spence both outhrew and outlanded Garcia by a wider margin than credited for. Sadly, Spence would miss more time out after this due to another career-threatening injury, but pass the test with flying colors in a unification with Yordenis Ugas.
