Spence Ready To Fight Fire Against Fire With Porter
On Tuesday, Errol Spence Jr decided to throw the first shot at Shawn Porter at a press event outside Staples Center,
“I acknowledge that [Porter] is kind of dirty. A lot of times he does like to fight dirty, especially if things don’t go his way,” the IBF welterweight titleholder said of the current WBC champion. “I’m not worried about it. We’ll have a game plan for it.”
“Maybe he can bring out different tools in my arsenal,” said Spence Jr. “He’s a guy who’s rough and rugged. If I do start outpointing him, he’s going to try and make it rough and knock me out of my gameplan, trying to miss me and break me down like he does with his other opponents. I’ll be ready for anything.”
Spence feels he is ready for any pressure or dirty boxing that Porter can throw his way on September 28th, knowing he’ll have to just adapt to the situation.
“I believe I can do the same thing too,” said Spence Jr.
“He’s going to try to break me down mentally. It’s on me not to fold. It’s about switching gears throughout the fight, turning it off and on and showing my whole talent.”
