Spence: I'm Looking To Stop Porter, I Want To Clear Out 147!

The two boxers will collide in the headline bout of a FOX Sports PBC Pay-Per-View event on Saturday, September 28 from Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Porter last only lost twice, and they were both close decisions at the hands of Keith Thurman and Kell Brook.


But Spence is looking to do one better. He wants to put everyone in the weight class on notice by stopping Porter inside the distance.

Spence feels confident that Porter will not see the final bell.

"I know Shawn will keep this same energy on fight night. It's going to be an amazing moment when I get this knockout at Staples Center. This is what I've been waiting for. I had to be on the sidelines and watch Shawn fight Keith Thurman and Danny Garcia, but now I'm in that group. I have the opportunity to fight these top guys and make my name known," Spence said.
"My whole thing is that I'm looking for the stoppage. I want to make a statement that I'm clearing out the division. I want Manny Pacquiao and all of the top names in this division."

Spence has been calling for a unification bout for a long time. He finally gets the opportunity to face another champion next month.

"Shawn is a warrior who always comes to fight and leaves his heart on the table. He always comes ready, but I'm in shape and ready for him too. We're both always in exciting fights and that's what we're going to give the fans," Spence said.
"You've seen my growth over the years to where I'm fighting in bigger and bigger stadiums and headlining the pay-per-views. Now I'm in a unification fight, which is what I've wanted for a long time."

[QUOTE=FredWreck;19986679]After you take Spence’s sausage out of your mouth, close it and never open it again. Spence is an overrated boxer. No real tests. ANYBODY can look good against lower level opposition. Porter with the upset. Spence and Crawford will…
