WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford will face mandatory challenger Shawn Porter on November 20th, at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada
Porter is expected to be the biggest test of Crawford’s career and he is a former IBF & WBC welterweight champion, and challenges Crawford for his WBO title. Crawford is undefeated and is a two weight world champion and the Porter fight will be the sixth defence of his WBO welterweight world title
Porter feels being a former world champion and being in a numerous top fights gives him the edge of experience over Crawford and this could be the deciding factor in what he feels will be a great fight
”Experience means nothing if you don’t use it, but my record speaks for itself. Everyone’s seen what I’ve done, every experience that I’ve had, I’ve held onto them and I’ve used them to my advantage” Porter told ESPN
“When you consider the experience in this fight and me having more experience than Terence Crawford, that is a fact. … When I say the fight between me and Terence Crawford is going to be great, it’s gonna be great”
”When I say I have what it takes to beat him, don’t sleep on that, believe that. I do.”
Will experience play a key in this fight – can Shawn Porter as the underdog claim victory and become a three time world champion??
