Four division world champion Mikey Garcia is moving up by two weight divisions to challenge IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence, and the contest takes at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
But, he does give Garcia points for his edge in experience and views him as the best fighter that Spence ever faced in his career to date.
Tickets for Saturdays event, which is promoted by TGB Promotions and Ringstar Sports, are on sale now, and can be purchased at SeatGeek.com, the Official Ticketing Provider of AT&T Stadium. Having great fan support at the grand arrival was a special moment for me. This is where I started.
How do I watch Errol Spence vs. Mikey Garcia?
Some people are saying size matters, but history has shown that some ring legends were able to overcome a massive size difference and go up to beat larger men including Henry Armstrong, Roberto Duran and modern legend Manny Pacquiao.
I dont think anyone has the power to knock me out.

"It's fantastic to have this great support from the local fans and media here". I'm glad he's as confident as I am. I'm looking for a third on Saturday. "When it comes to timing, speed, reflexes and defense, you name it, I'm better", said Garcia, who has won belts at junior welterweight, lightweight, junior lightweight and featherweight.
"It's going to be a really good fight. He's going to wish he took his brother's advice not to take this fight". "This fight does exactly that".
And another Hall of Fame trainer, James "Buddy" McGirt, who at one times was a top-tier fighter and a former world champions, agrees with Roach's view of the contest. He can punch and he can move. That's how I win this fight.
"It's unbelievable to be on this stage". "This is a dream come true fighting in my hometown at AT&T Stadium, the champion said". This fight is about big challenges and obstacles. The venue has also played host to high school and college football, concerts, championship fights, global soccer matches, and other special events. I want to go after the best and he's the best right now.
"I'm not going to be an easy fight for Benavidez". Pick a victor and we'll release the results at the end of the week. I cant wait to put on a great performance. He will be ready on Saturday night.. "I am ready, and I am always prepared". I will beat him in anything he wants to do. I want to make history, and this is the one that will get me there.
"I'm very proud and happy to be competing on this great pay-per-view card". "I've got to go in there Saturday night and show why I picked this fight".
"I'm the type of fighter that lets the fight unfold and develop". I have to see how my opponent is going to react and be intelligent. "I am ready to get it on now". "I'm going to take it round-by-round". He's going to try to keep me off balance and that's why I made sure I came in great shape for this fight so I can chase this kid around.More news: R.

"I have to be smart and work behind my jab, while also being aware of what he can do with his left hand". Everyone wants to take Floyd Mayweathers place as the face of boxing, and this puts me on the right track to become the face of boxing and the best fighter in the world. We dont allow that kind of mentality into training camp.
"It's definitely an honor to be on this platform".
"Spence's style is pretty basic, so it's not too hard to find sparring partners to emulate him".
"Whatever game plan they got going, it won't work", Spence Jr. added.
