Two of the welterweight titles Will Soon be Merged on September 28, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, as ShawnShowtime Porter collides with ErrolThe Truth Spence Jr..
Even the IBF welterweight champion, Spence Jr., is a -900 favorite in this struggle with the WBC titleholder, Porter, arriving straight back in +550.
Its no surprise to see Spence as a big favorite within this bout thats par for the course . The Truth was most recently a -450 favored against -300 from Kell Brook and Mikey Garcia to win the IBF title.
On the flip side, this is actually the second time in the past few fights that Porter has been an underdog. He closed from Danny Garcia to the vacant WBC title in 2018 he won. Showtime was an underdog in his bout by Keith Thurman for the WBA belt in 2017, a struggle in which Porter dropped by unanimous decision. ??
Porter really does a fantastic job in staying light on his feet, slipping punches until finding his opportunities to bite back on his or her mouthpiece and lets his hands soar and has good instincts. His footwork is unique and he uses it to make his opponents miss in addition to get to throw flurries of punches, overcoming his short height for the branch. He moves since stopping Andre Berto in 2017, almost as great as he does in the first, but he lacks accurate knockout power using not earned a win because fashion.
Spence is good at maintaining distance and with his jab to set up his crime and maintain his opponents. With the use of his jab, he piles on the cries and wears on his foes till he begins to let his left hand fly behind it which puts them in a way. Of The Truths 25 wins, 21 were by knockout and his decision win over Mikey Garcia in March was his fight to go because 2014 to the judges scorecards.
I think that Porter is going to have some problems closing the distance in this struggle as Spence flames out that jab and powerfully that Showtime in his paths ought to discontinue more often than not. Porter may have a small speed advantage in this bout but electricity and strategy??lean in favour of Spence.
Prediction: Errol Spence Jr. (-900) via decision
