Shawn Porter Decisions Russell Jordan Over Ten Rounds

By Mark Vester

At the Wolstein Center in Cleveland, Ohio, junior middleweight prospect Shawn Porter (13-0, 10KOs) won a ten round decision over a tougher than expected Russell Jordan (15-7, 10KOs). The scores were 97-92, 97-92 and 100-89 for Porter.

The more experienced Jordan proved to give Porter some early trouble. Jordan used his tall 6'2 frame to his advantage by keeping his distance and throwing punches in bunches but suffered a cut on the left side of his head from a clash of heads. During the fifth, a cut opened around the left eye of Porter from a clash of heads. Jordan kept coming even when Porter began to throw a lot of punches. In the sixth, Porter landed some heavy power punches. Jordan ate them and kept coming and threw some good punches near the end.

The were trading a lot of punches in the seventh. Porter may not be that hard of a puncher because he was unable to put Jordan away with flush shots. Porter managed to outwork him in the eight and ninth. During the ninth, a left hook from Porter knocked out the mouthpiece of Jordan and the ref had the nerve to take a point from Jordan over the mouthpiece coming out. It was the second time Jordan lost his mouthpiece and neither time was intentional. In the tenth, Porter continued to outwork Jordan. They traded some punches in the final ten seconds.

On the undercard, junior welterweight prospect Lanard Lane (11-0, 7KOs) won an eight round unanimous decision over Martin Tucker (7-5, 3KOs). The scores were were 77-75, 78-74 and 80-71.

I think it was a perfect fight for Porter at this time in his career.It was a good learning experience for him to fight a much taller southpaw.Something he hasn't seen.Will he be a great?Lets see how he improves.

[QUOTE=PR Boxer;7557893]To be honest I see a lot of people discrediting Porter and it's not to hype him up but we have to see the type of opponent he's in there with, he was a southpaw with a reach and…

Saw this fight and wasnt too impressed with Porter but he still pulled out the win for his hometown fans, shouldve ended it early with a KO he kept pulling outside and bouncing around though, obviously not much experience with…

[QUOTE=Sugar Q;7558335]Porter was an amateur that seems to have had too many amateur fights. This kid was getting way too much hype. If this guy is one of Manny's key sparring partners wow cause he's just a thick guy that…
