Following such a devastating collision, pound-for-pound contender Spence may have been excused for wanting a better route again to the ring.
However as an alternative, the defiant southpaw – feeling he has one thing to show – needed solely to face one of the best.
So now his fight against Danny Garcia – which was set for January till the crash – might be his first since escaping dying.
And it was a request he particularly requested his advisor Al Haymon at PBC to approve.
Spence revealed: “Combating a lesser opponent that I do know I can beat, I do not assume it might have me 100 per cent focussed like Danny Garcia has obtained me.
“I principally informed my supervisor Al Haymon, ‘I am a shark, do not put me within the pool with tuna’s and seabass. Put me within the tank with different sharks’.
“I wish to be in there with a shark, so we selected Danny Garcia.”
