Ding ding – it’s fight time! The welterweight title is on the line in Texas tonight, with Errol Spence Jr defending his belt against the awesome Mikey Garcia. And with this handy guide we’ll tell you how simple it is to get a Spence vs Garcia live stream no matter where you are in the world.
Garcia is ascending two whole weight classes to take on Spence Jr in a title bout for the latter’s IBF welterweight belt. Spence is arguably the world’s best fighter at his weight, so the appeal for legendary fighter Garcia to show him who’s boss is easy to see.
Errol Spence vs Mikey Garcia: when and where?
The undercard to the Spence vs Garcia fight is set to start tonight (Saturday, March 16) at 9pm ET, 6pm PT – so that’s 1am GMT on Sunday morning. We’re expecting the headliners to head to the ring no earlier than around 12am midnight ET, 9pm PT, 4am GMT.
The venue for the fight is the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas – the usual home to NFL franchise the Dallas Cowboys.
Garcia (39–0, 30 KOs) has an undeniably stunning record and is taking a big risk by moving up in weight category to take on the welterweight champ. While Spence Jr (24–0, 21 KOs) holds the experience in his favour as the resident in the weight class he also has an extra benefit as this is his turf in a more literal way – he grew up in Texas. That should mean he has the crowd behind him too during this super fight.
Both fighters are undefeated and are both ranked in The Ring’s top 10 pound-for-pound fighters – but someone will almost definitely lose their perfect record. While Garcia has won titles in four weight classes, Spence holds the world title in the welterweight arena where some of the greatest talent in boxing currently exists.
As a measure of this fight’s importance, WBA regular welterweight champion and legend Manny Pacquiao will be attending this match to watch it live. And you can watch it live too as if you were right there with him. To catch everything online, you’ve come to the right place.
