Two of the welterweight titles Will Likely be Merged on September 28, in 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 fight with the WBC titleholder, Porter, coming back at +550.
It comes as no surprise to view Spence as a favorite within this bout thats par for the course for the New York native. The Truth was a -450 favorite against Mikey Garcia and -300 from Kell Brook to win the IBF title in 2016.
On the other hand, this is the second time in the past few battles that Porter was an underdog. He shut from Danny Garcia for the WBC title in 2018 at +125 that he won. Showtime was an underdog in his own departure by Keith Thurman for the WBA belt in 2017, a struggle where Porter lost by unanimous decision. ??
Porter does a wonderful job at staying light until finding his opportunities to bite down on his or her mouthpiece slipping punches and allows his hands fly and has really good instincts. His footwork is outstanding and he uses it to create his opponents miss as well as get to throw flurries of punches, beating his short height. Lastlyhe moves almost as great as he can in the first, but he lacks knockout power using not earned a win in that style since quitting Andre Berto at 2017.
Spence is extremely great at with his jab to set up his offense and keep his opponents and maintaining distance. With the usage of his strong jab, he piles on the punches and wears on his foes until he starts to allow his left hand fly behind it which puts them in a terrible way. By knockout, 21 were of the 25 wins of The Truth and his decision win Mikey Garcia in March has been his very first battle to go a period of 11 struggles, since 2014 to the judges scorecards.
I believe that Porter will get some difficulties closing the distance inside this struggle as Spence flames that rigid jab out and powerfully that it ought to stop Showtime in his paths. Power and plan lean in favor of Spence although porter may have a slight speed advantage in this bout.
Prediction: Errol Spence Jr. (-900) via decision
