Shawn Porter-Yordenis Ugas - CompuBox Punch Stats

By CompuBox

In a fight that defied expectations on several levels, Shawn Porter (the master mauler) retained his WBC welterweight title by boxing effectively from long-range for most of the contest (leading 65-49 in jab connects and 26%-22% in jab accuracy) while the usually scientific Yordenis Ugas stalked and landed well to the body (he led 57-34 in body connects) and tied Porter with 79 power connects while being more accurate in that department (35%-28%).

Porter overcame an early deficit and worked his way back into the fight as, after six rounds, Porter led 68-67 in total connects, then, in rounds 7-12, Porter out-landed Ugas 76-61 overall and prevailed in total connects in three of the final four rounds.

In the end, Porter led 144-128 overall, and the CompuBox round-by-round breakdown of total connects had the fight 5-5-2. Porter was more active (42.9 punches per round to Ugas' 37.4), which may have helped Porter over the finish line. Scoring: 116-112, 115-113 P, 117-111 U.

The American only just managed to hold onto his crown in California, two judges scoring the fight 116-112 and 115-113 in his favour, with the other giving it to Ugas 117-111.

Porter, 31, struggled to make weight and he was below his best against challenger Ugas.

"I think we won the majority of the rounds. I would not have given Ugas very many," he said after his win.

Ugas, the 32-year-old Cuban coming off eight straight wins, rattled Porter and only just fell short of an upset win.
