Errol Spence is supposed to do that, he's the bigger welterweight'.
Garcia is a four-weight world champion, having began his career at 126lb winning titles at featherweight, super-feather, lightweight and most recently super-lightweight.
The fact that both Garcia (39-0, 30 KOs) and Spence (24-0, 21 KOs) possess both fight-altering and fight ending power, respectively, only sweetens the pot.
Tickets for Saturday's event, which is promoted by Man Down Promotions and Garcia Promotions, in association with TGB Promotions and Ringstar Sports, are on sale now, and can be purchased at SeatGeek.com, the Official Ticketing Provider of AT&T Stadium.
"Skill for skill, talent for talent, I'm more dominant than him in everything, in every aspect", Spence said.

The true test, however, will come in the middle rounds once Spence is able to set up and land his left hand, which is a scenario he may be able to speed up should he be able to use his jab as a weapon sooner than later.
"I'm not going to sit and wait my turn, I'm not someone who's going to sit around and wait until they decide it's time - I want to move on with my career". But he doesn't think the size difference is what gives him the advantage. I'll beat him in anything he wants to do. "On paper, he's the toughest opponent to date but once we get in the ring we'll find out". He called me out, so they obviously think that they see something. We don't allow that kind of mentality into training camp. "I hope he keeps that same energy inside of the ring".
"This is a legendary fight". This is where we see what fighters are made of. "If I beat him up throughout the whole fight, they'll say, 'He has fantastic heart for a little guy". You can't ever write off the little guy. "This is going to be a hard fight".
When Spence and Garcia step into the ring Saturday night - at midfield in the massive billion-dollar home stadium of the favorite National Football League team for both fighters - it will be a matchup of undefeated champions, and two of the best pound-for-pound boxers.
"Saturday night, Errol is going to find out why I picked this fight", Garcia said. And I'll leave you now with show notes after the jump.
"Here in Texas, it's like a second home".
The Deontay Wilder-Tyson Fury heavyweight world title fight generated about 325,000 pay-per-view buys in December and the Manny Pacquiao-Adrien Broner fight in January did about 400,000. "Whatever gameplan they've got going, it won't work". "I want to make history and this is the one that will get me there". "I have to fight the best fight of my life". We trained very hard.
"If that person would have told me a week or 10 days ago [he felt the PPV would only sell 300,000], I wouldn't have told him that he's foolish", said Schaefer.
"If I wanted to make a big splash and a big name for myself I needed to go for the best out there and Errol Spence is the man right now at welterweight". "They have this [saying] 'Sí se puede, ' [or] 'Yes, we can, ' and what I mean by that is people believe Mikey can pull it off".
