Spence said on the ‘All The Smoke’ Podcast: “100% focused, I think I’d beat Floyd.

“He’s mentally tough. I’d cut him up, and use my jab, throw combinations and work the body and work the head.

“He’s one of those tough fighters like Shawn Porter. You’re not going to break him down mentally.

“You can break him down physically, but mentally he’s always going to be there. I would just break him down physically.”
