Terence Crawford Fights Shawn Porter Tonight On ESPN+ PPV

Audio

Terence Crawford and Shawn Porter’s fight is set to be historical.

Terence Crawford and Shawn Porter’s fight will take place tonight on ESPN+ PPV. The fight is said to be one of the best fights to take place this year.

Terence Crawford has developed into a three-division champion and one of the most respected fighters in the world when it comes to pound-for-pound rankings. But it doesn’t necessarily imply that anybody can safely assert that they understand precisely how good Crawford (37-0, 28 KOs) really is. This weekend, though, at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, all of that will be different.

Terence Crawford has spent most of his career savoring the scraps of second-rate and long-dead opponents, thanks to the endlessly irritating nature of boxing politics. However, as a result of the World Boxing Organization (WBO) naming former two-time champion Shawn Porter (31-3-1, 17 KOs) as his mandatory opponent, the two fighters from opposite sides of the network and promotional divide will square off on Saturday in a pay-per-view showdown that is expected to be entertaining.

Over the course of the last two years, Porter has established himself as the most active and ambitious member of a star-studded welterweight division, while Crawford has steadily increased his weight class. Throughout his career at 147 pounds, the two-division champion has sparred with fighters such as Kell Brook, Adrien Broner, Keith Thurman, Andre Berto, Danny Garcia, Yordenis Ugas, and Errol Spence Jr., just to name a few.

Porter hasn’t been victorious in all of the major battles he has undertaken, but he has been equally competitive and interesting in each of them. Even more impressive is the fact that he has refined his aesthetic over time.

In his early years, Porter was a physical fighter who bulldozed his way inside like a fullback breaking through the line of scrimmage. Over time, though, Porter has refined his game by adding feints and fast footwork while also enhancing his pure boxing skills.

Last but not least, Crawford finds himself looking across the ring at an opponent that has the ability to bring out the best in him, and the Nebraska native seems to be just as enthused about this as his detractors.
