WBC, IBF lightweight champion Mikey Garcia admits the sheer danger of facing Errol Spence is exactly what's enticing him to pursue the fight.

Garcia (39-0, 30 KOs) has made it clear that he wants to move up by two weight divisions to challenge Spence for his IBF welterweight world title.

He wants to return in a big fight by the end of the year, which could push the Spence showdown back to 2019.
