Keith Thurman vs Shawn Porter may have eluded the general public, however it was a mouth-watering clash anticipated by many boxing fans around the world.
And boy, did it live up to the expectations.
Porter’s fast and aggressive come-forward style set a high pace, with Thurman being effective on the back foot and delivering hurtful counters off the ropes. Both landed big shots throughout the fight, with Thurman landing the more eye-catching managing to convince all three judges to score 115-113 in the Californian’s favour.
Porter will come again, proving he’s still to be reckoned with at world level. However, it’s Keith Thurman looking at the more lucrative options in the welterweight division.
Will he go for an all-American unification clash with Danny Garcia? Take on rising star Errol Spence? Or would you like to see him against the IBF champ Kell Brook?
