Errol Spence Jr dominated Mikey Garcia straight from the off to win a one-sided unanimous decision (120-107, 120-108, 120-108) across the board.
Spence, who was the bigger man coming into the fight as Garcia moved up a weight class, used his height and reach to his advantage to extend his undefeated record to 25-0, handing Garcia his first professional loss in the process. Spence called out Manny Pacquiao after the fight, and the Filipino boxer entered the ring and welcomed the fight with “The Truth.”
Here’s how Twitter reacted to Spence’s dominant performance.

Spence displayed dominance and control against García and my prediction was somewhat taken out of context in what I predicted was about who started and establish control and that was Errol Spence being the case! Congratulations Errol!— Sugar Ray Leonard (@SugarRayLeonard) March 17, 2019
