This weekend promises an intriguing title unification bout between welterweight boxing stars. Errol Spence will defend his IBF welterweight title for the fourth time while opting to win his counterpart’s WBC belt. Let’s look at the Errol Spence vs Shawn Porter betting predictions.
On September 28 the “Staples Center” will host a blockbuster clash for the title of Unified Welterweight World Champion. The winner will be crowned as №1 fighter in the 147lb division. Undefeated Errol Spence aims to knock out the opponent to prove the separation between him and the rest of the division. Albeit, some online sportsbook news in the US question whether he can finish a well-conditioned fighter like Porter.
Errol Spence vs Shawn Porter betting predictions foresee the fight to go the distance
Boxing fans all over the world are having an exciting Autumn schedule. The upcoming fight will be a great addition to the line-up, with an undisputed fighter on the unification bout. Errol Spence sports a 25-0 record, finishing 84% of his fights with knockouts. He stands at 5’9” and has a 72-inch reach. “The Truth” last fought on March against Mikey Garcia. Despite ending his finish streak, Spence Jr. landed the biggest win of his career. Now he is looking to resume his signature technique.
It comes as no surprise that Intertops analysts consider Spence as a sizable favourite with 1.10 odds. The 29-year-old is highly athletic with an extreme punch accuracy. He has remarkably technical defense which allows him to counter effectively. However, it’s not likely to see this fight end with a stoppage. Spence will probably land shots to the midsection, but Porter is just not the opponent to rattle easily. His last three match-ups ended by decision. Thus several online sportsbook sites in the US predict the bout to go the distance.
To beat the underdog mentality
In his second reign as WBC welterweight champion, Shawn Porter will enter the ring with a 30-2-1 record. He will do so as the avid underdog with 6.50 odds to win the bout. This is the second time in the last three fights that “Showtime” is considered a longshot. Although, he managed to upset those odds before, his controversial victory over Yordenis Ugas dented his reputation. To be recognized as a welterweight world champion, Porter needs to redeem himself.
The 31-year-old fighter is one of the most underrated boxers in the world. He is an intense pressure fighter with really good instincts. Maintaining exceptional footwork, “Showtime” goads his opponents to come to him. He moves almost as well in the last round as he does in the first. While there are no problems with landing powerful shots, it will be highly difficult to close the distance.
