Errol Spence Jr. issued a statement following his unanimous decision victory over Danny Garcia in their boxing match on Saturday night.
Spence Jr. was involved in a terrible car accident last year that put his boxing career in jeopardy. But he was able to recover and just over a year later he stepped into the ring over Garcia in an attempt to defend the WBC and IBF welterweight titles. He did so with flying colors, as Spence Jr. beat Garcia to the punch over 12 rounds, winning a unanimous decision on the judges’ scorecards (117-111, 116-112, 116-112). For Spence Jr. to look so good after his car accident is pretty remarkable.
Following the win over Garcia, Spence Jr. took to his social media to release a statement on his big win in his return to the boxing ring. Check out what Spence Jr. wrote on his Instagram the day after a victorious and emotional return to boxing.
