Shawn Porter Aims To Secure Spence vs. Garcia Winner

Two-time welterweight world champion "Showtime" Shawn Porter scored a dominant unanimous decision victory over previously unbeaten Sebastian Formella in an IBF welterweight title eliminator Saturday night headlining FOX PBC Fight Night and on FOX Deportes from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
 
"He was a tough fighter," said Porter. "After about six rounds my dad told me that he's going to keep taking these punches, so I just needed to keep the pressure on him."

Porter (31-3-1, 17 KOs) began to impose his renowned all-action style from the outset, as Formella (22-1, 10 KOs) looked to use the ring and his jab to slow the ongoing attack. Porter's arsenal was more varied and effective as the fight went on, adding in increased body attacks and thudding left hooks and uppercuts to punctuate his numerous combinations.
 
In addition to out-landing Formella by a count of 304 to 148 throughout the fight according to CompuBox, Porter had a significant advantage in body punches landed, connecting on 89 to Formella's six. Porter's 304 punches landed was the most he's connected on in a fight, surpassing the total he accrued in his 2016 clash against Keith Thurman.
 
Porter's victory puts him in position for a showdown with the winner of the upcoming Errol Spence Jr. vs. Danny Garcia FOX Sports PBC Pay-Per-View matchup in November. In his post-fight interview with FOX Sports' Jordan Hardy, Porter delivered a succinct message for his potential next opponent.
 
"I'm still here and I'm not going anywhere," said Porter, who dropped a close decision to Spence in a unification bout last year, and defeated Garcia to capture the WBC title in 2018.
 
"There's no telling what they'll see from me in a rematch," added Porter later. "I think both guys can also make adjustments. That's what makes rematches so great, the fans have seen what both of you can do and they want to see who will make the right adjustments. I definitely think that I will be a little different against either guy."

[QUOTE=JakeTheBoxer;20724633]Every. 154 is very bad division.[/QUOTE] He’s not being Charlo and Lara. I will think he wouldn’t have the power for Rosario or Even former champion Hurd. Maybe Teixeira.

Title eliminator for both my titles ������ **** it— Errol Spence (@ErrolSpenceJr) August 23, 2020 Even Spence has to laugh at the corruption.

If Spence beats Danny, Spence -Porter 2 makes full sense. Porter was the toughest Spence`s fight so far.

[QUOTE=champion4ever;20723397]Trust me both guys would rather face a Terrence Crawford for a welterweight unification bout than to face a Shawn Porter again.[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=Curtis2;20723463]You must be a comedian if you believe that... lmao-[/QUOTE] Well Id want to face Crawford too. Porter…
