Fight Sports lands Spence/Garcia exclusively in 30+ countries
FIGHT SPORTS™, continuing to secure rights to the top Live World Championship Boxing Events in the sport, has now landed the exclusive rights to over 30 countries for one of the best fights of the year as WBC and IBF Welterweight World Champion Errol Spence Jr. (26-0, 21 KO) returns to the ring to take on former World Champion Danny Garcia (36-2, 21 KO) on December 5th from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Spence is widely considered to be one of the top five pound-for-pound boxers in the sport today, and will be returning after over a year away from the ring due to injuries sustained in a devastating car accident that propelled him from the vehicle (https://www.espn.com/boxing/story/_/id/27812496/errol-spence-jr-seriously-injured-dallas-car-crash). Experts and fans were amazed at his swift recovery, and return to action in such a short time.
What is more impressive is the level of competition he has agreed to face upon his first fight back. A true testament to the level of his skills and confidence, he jumps right back into top-level competition by facing Garcia, ranked #2 by the WBC, a former WBC Welterweight Champion and one of the most exciting and dynamic fighters in the division. This immediate return to such a difficult fight makes this event so highly anticipated.
FIGHT SPORTS™ holds rights to this event in over 30 countries throughout Asia and Europe and continues their momentum of top fights of the year, having broadcast 2x Olympic Gold Medalist and top pound-for-pound fighter Vasily Lomachenko’s exciting upset defeat to new unified Lightweight World Champion Teofimo Lopez in October.
