And Garcia made the fateful decision of backing former sparring partner Romero to win.
And despite the bookies odds heavily stacked in Davis’ favourite, the American made a winner-take-all 20 grand bet with Spence.
Garcia, 23, said: “20k I’ve got on Rollies, he’s got on Tank.”
Spence, 32, replied: “Yeah. Don’t play with me.”

Garcia, a man of his word, commented: “Send me your wire info.”
Spence was probed later that night about a super-fight with Terence Crawford, 34, this year.
