    • Top Rank is above staging these gimmick fights. We’ll probably get a legit contender in the co-feature like Nico Ali Walsh.

    • Porter’s style is very predictable in many cases. Porter simply smothers his opponent s on the inside and hits. When Porter reaches to throw outside punches, he literally becomes so far off balance since he does not sync his legs well. In my opinion, Crawford will win this fight on the outside while Porter will be struggling just to keep up. Crawford can make this fight actually boring by keeping himself laterally moving and popping the one-dimensional Porter all night long.

    • Then why are you even here? You don’t want to support fighters but you want to be entertained by them

  • excellent. lets see it
    seems like a promotional fiscal loser.
    these two want a lot of money
    hope it happens.. have had my doubts

    • He didn’t have stones he had no choice. Secondly, the fight hasn’t happened yet. As long as you have “COVID” or Arum in the picture something bad can always happen.

      • Porter has all the choice in the world. He doesn’t have a belt and is highly ranked by other straps. Crawford offered him 2 mil before and he turned it down. So he’ll be getting more money that’s the only “force”. Crawford is loving it! If only the governing bodies could force unifications so Spence can’t avoid Crawford.

  • Porter is an excellent fighter. Hes beaten some really good pros. His loses have all been close, so have a lot of his wins. I think he’ll push Bud harder than anyone and Bud will end up giving Porter the first convincing loss of his career. Bud UD 12.

  • Crawford is starting to slip.. he is way too inactive and his timing and balance looked awful vs. Brook.. his finish was wild and sloppy too.. Porter by upset SD

  • Will be entertaining for sure, too early to pick a winner. Both guys are dogs, so it will be physical and violent. Crawford finally in against one of the PBC Big Four: Porter, Thurman, Garcia, Spence. Chance to prove he’s the top dog, if he beats Showtime convincingly.

  • I THINK CRAWFORD WINS THIS ONE… PORTER HAS NEVER BEEN AN EASY FIGHT FOR ANYBODY BUT I THINK CRAWFORD HAS THE SKILLS TO BEAT HIM…

  • Boxing seriously needs this fight. We’ve already missed 2 block buster fights this year. Crawford vs Porter is very intriguing. We’ll see if Crawford truly has the goods. I hope this fight happens without interruption.

  • This will finally be a true test for Crawford. They have him P4P while not having fought one legitimate threat at Welterweight. Khan? Horn? Brooks severely damaged goods? Porter will test his skill and resolve . Not sold on Crawford, but if he beats Porter convincingly, which no one really has, will make me a believer.

  • Finally Crawford I’ve been a fan no matter what fight fans say he will beat porter 11 round TKO and PBC fighter will duck this Indeed, talent switch-hitting fighter who can box going backward and forward an excellent jab, power, ring IQ, and the killer instinct to finish his foes.

  • just sign the damn contract already Bud stop letting uncle Bob pick your unranked opponents for you this will be the 1st current top 5 rated 147lber that bud has been in the ring with should be a good fight and if he cant handle Porters aggression then he loses and if boxes well and doesnt get into slugfests he could escape with a SD win lmao for all you clowns thing Crawfish has a chance at a legit KO you guys make me chuckle

  • Porter has one of the best chins in boxing never seen him get stopped,crawford one the best technical fighters in boxing.long layoffs are never good in boxing.Hopefully crawford can stay busy in boxing,its a shame to see someone as talented as him to be on the shelf for so long.
