Thurman Breaks Down Porter-Spence
With the welterweight division slowly walking towards unification, WBA “super” welterweight champion, Keith Thurman, is keeping his eye on a showdown between WBC champion Shawn Porter and IBF champion Errol Spence Jr.
“You know, Porter is tough,” Thurman said of the man he beat in 2016.
“If you let him fight his fight, which I don’t think he even did in his last fight – I’m not a fan of this Porter boxing. I’m not a fan of Porter on the outside. If Porter stays on the outside against Errol Spence, it’s easy pickings for Errol Spence.”
“If Porter roughs him up and fights him the way he fought me, if he fights him the way he fought Andre Berto and got up all in his chest – and there was a few head-butts. I know they’re not intentional, but it makes the fight annoying, you know,” Spence continued. “It’s that you don’t have to just watch out for this guy’s hands and what punches he’s throwing, you’ve gotta watch out for that bulldozer of a head he’s got, charging at you at the same time. But I definitely favor Spence in that fight.”
