Hello and welcome to tonight’s WBO welterweight title fight between Terence Crawford and Shawn Porter. Crawford, the longtime champion at 147lbs who’s been on the shelf since a TKO win over Britain’s Kell Brook last year, is out to bolster his claim as the world’s best pound-for-pound fighter opposite Porter, who’s fresh off a dominant win over Sebastian Formella in August.
Fascinating scrap, this. Crawford is a heavy favorite on merit – most oddsmakers list him as a 5/1 favorite – but no one ever looks good against the crafty, athletic Porter, a two-time beltholder at boxing’s glamour division. The consensus is tonight’s showdown will either be a virtuoso performance for Crawford against perhaps the highest quality opponent of his career or an all-out war between two of the best welterweights of their generation.
