Spence defends IBF welterweight title with win over Garcia
Aowner Jerry Jones was there along with several players, including quarterback Dak Prescott, as part of an announced crowd of 47,525.
Jones and Prescott even stepped into the ring with Floyd Mayweather before the main event.
Exactly nine months earlier, Jones and the Cowboys were also there when Spence won his second title defense in the 147-pound division. Spence stopped previously undefeated challenger Carlos Ocampo with a first-round knockout at the NFL team’s practice facility in Frisco, not far from his home in Desoto.
Garcia grew up around Oxnard, California, where the Cowboys hold part of their preseason training camp each year.
WBA welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao was in the building and could be a future opponent for Spence. Pacquiao won two title bouts at the Cowboys’ stadium in 2010, when he beat Joshua Clottey for the WBO welterweight crown and later Antonio Margarito for vacant WBO super welterweight title.
“He’s broken records here before, he’s a legend in the sport and it’d be my honor to fight him next,” Spence said of the 40-yearold Pacquiao, who wants to return to the ring in July.
