Terence Crawford and Shawn Porter are expected to serve up a potential fight of the year contender in Las Vegas when they meet in the middle of the ring on Saturday night. ‘Bud’ is looking to make it six successive knockouts since he moved up to welterweight back in 2018 after becoming the undisputed king at super-lightweight.
Crawford’s hit-list includes Jeff Horn, Jose Benavidez Jr, Amir Khan, Egidijus Kavaliauskas and Kell Brook with his record currently standing at 37-0.
And while this may not be the blockbuster unification that everybody wants to see with Errol Spence Jr, Porter is largely considered a top-level operator and the third-best fighter in the division.
‘Showtime’ always bring the action and has never been in a dull encounter, meaning we are set for fireworks in Sin City.
Porter has never ducked a challenge, with his record now reading 31-3-1 after losing his WBC strap to Spence in September 2019.
And if there was ever a time for Crawford to cement his legacy as an all-time great, beating Porter would be the perfect way to go about his business to once again set up the chance to meet with Spence.
