Which noticeable mistakes does Spence make? He has very good fundamentals and throws his punches correctly, very tight high guard as well. I'm not seeing a lot of countering opportunities for Garcia. I think Spence will bully him.
His feet were all over the place in the Brook fight he doesn’t have great footwork and unless he’s bulldozing forward having his own way he looks a bit out of sorts. He hasn’t fought anybody in the class of Garcia and like I said if he gets the better of Mikey it won’t be because he’s the better boxer it will be his size.

Hmm, I gotta say I thought his footwork looked very good in the Peterson fight.

He had pretty much his own way in that fight of course he looked great. Watch the first 7 rounds of the Brook fight when he was being pushed back and his feet kept crossing. It was only until he got a foothold and start to get some shots off he looked good. He has flaws that a good boxer like Garcia can exploit. I bet they watched the Brook fight over and over and thought we can take this, I don’t think Spence looked good in that fight at all, and that’s been his only real test.

I remember Spence having some trouble with Brook's speed and ability early on but he was always applying this constant pressure, we will see if Garcia can replicate parts of what Brook did. I tend to think that's a bit of a tall order as Kell and Mikey have different styles, and if anything Spence will bully Garcia much worse than he did Brook. But I will check out that Brook fight again and look specifically at Spence's footwork
