Boxing News: Terence Crawford Will Have Advantage Over Errol Spence Jr, Says Former Boxer
Shawn Porter explains why Crawford is the favorite
Porter had a ton to say about the two going at it and added some interesting analysis to the situation.
“I honestly think for him there’s going to be more strategy involved than ever with his switching,” said Shawn Porter to K.O. Artists Sports when asked if Terence Crawford should turn southpaw against Errol Spence Jr, given that he’s a southpaw too.
“I don’t know if he’s going to stay southpaw or orthodox, whatever he’s going to do.
“I don’t want to give away his [Crawford] game plan from what I’ve seen for how I’d prepare for him, but I can say is if he were to turn southpaw and remain southpaw, I still have a feeling that Errol would have more trouble than he would with the southpaw situation.
“I could be completely wrong, but I think Errol would have a little more trouble, but we’ll see. It remains to be seen. There are so many questions. I’m tired of answering them. I’m ready for that fight to come so I can stop answering the questions.
“I’m pretty sure every Hall of Famer in here has had a trilogy fight. So, yeah, why not?” said Porter when told that there’s a rumor that Spence wants a rematch clause for the Crawford fight.
“Obviously, you don’t want to limit yourself to the possibilities outside of winning that fight or losing that fight. Both guys are trying to be very smart and very strategic. I respect it, and I get it. We’ll get the fight. Everybody has got to be patient,” said Porter.
Is what he said true?
Because of Crawford's track record, it would be tough to argue with Porter. Crawford is one of the best to ever do it, and although Spence Jr is too, Crawford could take this one.
When is the fight?
The fight is expected to occur on Saturday, October 15, at the famous Madison Square Garden in New York.
Who will win this fight?
This will likely be the toughest fight of the year to bet on. However, we must consider what Porter said here because it shows that Crawford might take it all. Crawford should probably be the guy if we had to put money on someone.
