Predictions:

Garcia by late KO. I still have my doubts about Spence. Should he be back so soon and against a formidable foe such as Garcia? Some are downplaying Garcia, but that’s unfair to him. A round here or there, and Garcia is still undefeated. With the uncertainty of Spence, I give Garcia more than a puncher’s chance. – Steve Kim, ESPN

Spence by unanimous decision. Garcia hasn’t been stopped as a pro, and I don’t expect Spence to do it in his first action since the accident. Spence might start off slowly, and he might even be losing in the first half of the fight, but in the end, he has too much for Garcia. – Cameron Wolfe, ESPN

Spence by unanimous decision. We still don’t know what Spence will be like in his return from the car accident. At this point in his career, it’s more important for him to get quality rounds against someone such as Garcia than to push for a knockout. Look for Spence to be tested at times but ultimately pick up a lopsided decision. – Ben Baby, ESPN
