Spence Sees Porter Being “Easier” Than Garcia
Errol Spence Jr is not looking for a long night at the office against Shawn Porter in an eventual unification fight.
The two fighters have signed for a showdown later this year, but not with a specific date and location in mind,
“It’s not really no difference,” Spence said to FOX Sports on facing Porter as opposed to Garcia.
“Me, personally, I’m looking to make it easier than the Mikey Garcia fight. So, you know, I hear a lot of talking from him and his father [Ken Porter], and how they been talking. So, I’m definitely gonna put on a showcase performance. And I’m looking to put on a great performance, and hopefully a stoppage.”
Spence controlled the entire pace of his March fight with Garcia at AT&T Stadium, but that can be attributed to Garcia moving up two whole weight classes in the process, while Porter has been a welterweight for nearly a decade.
“I think he knows this is not an easy fight for him,” Porter said. “He knows – you know. I’m not gonna talk about you like you’re not right here. You know this is not easier than Mikey Garcia. You know this ain’t gonna be no wash. You know you gonna have to get ready. And I will be ready.”
“I think everybody out there knows I wasn’t ducking Errol,” Porter said. “Errol knows I wasn’t ducking him. He knows it’s just a matter of time, as I have said before. And that time is coming real soon.”
