They both beat a common opponent in Sebastian Formella with a UD win for both. I think questions need to be asked in how tough he is. Porter is a tough boxer but he has hit the canvas and times where it hasn't been scored a knockdown (gloves touched the canvas). I'd say Conor is actually on the same level as Porter or around his level currently. Porter is world class but not elite. I think Porter is fading and eventually some up and comer will come along and take him out. I'd say give Conor 2 to 3 fights and then put him in with someone like Porter.
