Crawford vs Porter — The Main Event Preview
Terence “Bud” Crawford (37-0) is the WBO welterweight world champion, regularly ranked as one of the top five pound-for-pound boxers in the world. However, Crawford hasn’t been considered among the greats because he hasn’t been able to land a big fight against another truly great fighter.
For years, experts, fans and boxers have waited for an epic fight between Crawford and Errol Spence Jr., the current IBF and WBC unified welterweight world champion, but they’ve never agreed to it. While Crawford has looked impressive against the likes of Kell Brook and Amir Khan, none have presented enough of a challenge to truly measure him against. Faces a two-time champion who took his rival Spence to the limit, Crawford may finally have a chance to showcase his talent.
Shawn “Showtime” Porter (31-3-1) is an exciting challenger, a previous welterweight champion from 2013-2014 and again from 2018-2019. He is also the second ranked challenger in his class as rated by the WBO. This fight is a chance to build his legacy with a third reign as champion. Porter is no stranger to the spotlight, having fought in several huge PPV main events.
His most recent major fight was his bout with Errol Spence Jr. in September 2019. Used his aggressive pressure style, he pushed Spence further than anyone else had, leading to the only split decision of Spence’ career. Porter should be more than a measuring stick for Crawford, but instead a real threat to take his title and spoil his undefeated record.
Terence Crawford is a heavy favorite to win this fight at -750 odds.
