The big IBF/WBC welterweight unification Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr. vs. “Showtime” Shawn Porter Pay-Per-View is just around the corner and fight fans will be able to watch the fight online via live stream on various devices.
Premier Boxing Champions on FOX PPV held two successful boxing events starting with Errol Spence Jr. vs. Mikey Garcia and Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao vs. Keith “One Time” Thurman.
Both PPV events were widely successful doing well over 300,000 buys and this one is predicted to be a hit as well. FOX has proven a major player in boxing pushing the sport to mainstream like no other network has in recent years.
Spence Jr. is an undefeated technical boxer-puncher from Texas and holds the IBF welterweight title. He is widely regarded as the boogeyman of the 147-pound division because of his ability to fight out of the Southpaw stance and use his length and power to keep fighters from being able close the gap and get in on him.
Porter wants to be the first fighter to really get in close on Spence and smother him with a high pressure style. Every other fighter has been kept at a distance with Spence and had difficulty getting close to apply pressure, Porter has the style to do that, but can he do it remains to be seen on Saturday night.
Porter is a two-time welterweight champion, he held the IBF title from 2013-2014 but lost it to Kell Brook, Spence went on to defeat Brook by stoppage to claim that IBF belt.
Porter became a champion for a second time when he defeated Danny Garcia for the vacant WBC belt and successfully defended it against tricky Cuban Yordenis Ugas.
September 28th will bring the fireworks to Los Angeles and Spence Jr. and Porter promise to put on a show with the victor possibly landing a mega fight with WBA champion Manny Pacquiao next.
