A Couple of the welterweight titles Will Soon be unified 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 favored in this struggle with all the WBC titleholder, Porter, coming back at +550.
Its no surprise to visit Spence as a favorite within this bout which is par for the class lately . The Truth was a favored against Mikey Garcia and -300 from Kell Brook to win the IBF title in 2016.
On the flip side, this is the second time in the past few battles that Porter has been an underdog. He shut from Danny Garcia for the WBC title in 2018, a bout at +125 he won. Showtime was a fight in which Porter dropped by unanimous decision, an underdog in his departure with Keith Thurman for the WBA belt in 2017. ??
Porter has instincts and really also does a great job in staying light on his feet, slipping punches and allows his hands fly. His footwork is outstanding and he uses it to create his opponents miss as well as get in close to throw flurries of punches, beating his height for the division. Finally he moves since stopping Andre Berto at 2017, nearly as great as he does in the first, but he lacks true knockout power using not earned a win because style.
Meanwhile, Spence is good at with his jab to set up his offense and keep his opponents and maintaining distance. With the use of his strong jabhe piles on the punches and wears his foes till he starts to let his left hand fly behind it which puts them in a terrible manner. By knockout, 21 were of the 25 wins of The Truth and his decision win over Mikey Garcia in March had been his battle to go a period of 11 struggles, since 2014 to the judges scorecards.
I believe that Porter will have some difficulties closing the distance as Spence flames out that stiff jab and powerfully that Showtime in his tracks should stop more often than not. Plan and power lean in favour of Spence although porter may have a slight speed advantage within this bout.
Prediction: Errol Spence Jr. (-900) via decision
