Porter is Firm That 'Tremendous' Errol Spence Fight Will Happen

By Ryan Burton

Former welterweight champion Shawn Porter has a hit list.

On September 8th he will face former two-division champion Danny Garcia in a Showtime time televised main event at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. The vacant WBC welterweight title will be at stake.

If the 30-year-old Ohio native gets through that fight with a victory he wants to clear out the division.

At a recent media day he held at his Las Vegas training camp, Porter said that he considers himself the #2 welterweight in the world at the moment.

"It is hard to put Keith (Thurman) in there. He has been inactive. There is no need to even say that. We all know that. I go right above Keith. Errol Spence has been the champion longer. Errol Spence, Shawn Porter, then we get it going," Porter told BoxingScene.com.

A fight that a lot of fans would like to see is Spence versus Porter.  Spence has had trouble luring the big names in the ring with him but Porter said that he has no issue facing the Texan.

As far as how the potential fight would play out, Porter believes that it would be an action packed battle similar to his fight against WBA champion Keith Thurman.

"We don't back down. I think it is the same with me and him. You see our competitive drive and our heart round after round. Everybody was expecting big things out of me and Keith Thurman and we answered that bell and I think the same will go for myself and Errol Spence. Obviously we will have a game plan for him and figure out what he can do and can't do. We already know a great deal about him. I think it will be a tremendous fight just like this one between me and Danny Garcia," Porter explained.

[QUOTE=club fighter;19041591]You mean Leon Spinks *WITH* teeth -plus- ain't nothing straight about Shawn's grille. They both fought a little similar too, barreling in like a linebacker, relying on physical ability instead of ring science ......... they even look like they…

[QUOTE=Lemonhead_Jeff;19040775]Leon Spinks with straighter teeth! And both of them seem underappreciated. Spinks may not have had the greatest career, but he achieved something that most fighters never do. There is no shame in being a 'one hit wonder'. Spinks and…
