Roach is looking forward to the fight and respects Garcia, but believes Spence is way too much for him.

"This is a great battle between two top-10 pound-for-pound fighters,” said Roach to Premier Boxing Champions.

“Mikey is showing great courage in challenging Errol, but I think he may have taken on too much in moving up for this one. It's is the type of fight that creates intrigue for fans and that's good for boxing. I'm going with Errol Spence in this one. I think he has the size and power advantage. I'd love to see Manny Pacquiao fight the winner next. What a fight that will be!"

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.

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.

“I do think that Garcia has his hands full with Errol,” said McGirt. “Garcia has a heck of a journey in front of him come fight night. But in all fairness, Garcia is more experienced than Errol. Errol is still green and rough around the edges. Garcia is by far the best fighter that Errol will face.”

I fear for Manny against Spence. I see him getting beat up quite badly

Garcia was just too small and the additional weight seemed to slow him down
