The scores were 116-112, 116-112, 117-111.
The answered a lot of questions, as Spence was involved in a serious automobile accident last fall.
Shawn Porter – I saw it 8-4. 1 early run. Errol took 2 late rounds off. And then I thought Danny stole the 10th… but I may be bias to the underdog right there. At any rate both fighters fought hard and strong and Errol showed us THE TRUTH! #SpenceGarcia
Andre Ward – Errol Spence was blessed with another opportunity to fight again. He came back tonight and fought a great fight against a fighter who is respected in the game. Big respect ! Congrats bro.

Stephen Edwards – Spence knows how to “BOX” going forward. Everyone thinks you have to move away while boxing but that’s not true. Errol boxes going forward. Hard to outpoint him. Good job, nice performance!
