    Another Stevenson/Herring prediction thread. Most will root for Porter. Crawford will probably win though.

    I feel like Porter could have gotten the nod against Spence. If Porter has anything left in the tank he should give Crawford all types of problems.

    Crawford is going to beat up the shopworn Porter and stop him.

    Porter SD. Will sit on Crawford's chest the whole fight.

    Any fighter can be beat. What's your point? And why would the ref get paid for not calling a flash knockdown? I myself would not say that it was a knockdown but I stopped debating with zealots. Can't win. But yea, why would you just say that the ref was paid for that? Lol. You sound like another one of those crazy and irrational combat sport fans that keeps joining this forum.

    Surprised so many are picking Porter. Quality fighter, really likeable nice guy, and he always brings it and is a tough night's work, but he's 34 y/o, been boxing 30 years, competing for 26, and had a very extensive amateur career (290 fights) fighting with a very aggressive style, and he's been in a lot of wars and Crawford is probably the best guy he's fought and even though he's also 34 is much fresher with a lot less miles on the clock.

    Crawford is a master of draw and counter

    Style wise I think this is going to be Porters toughest fight...

    & I dislike Crawfish

    If Crawford comfortably beats Porter then we'll finally know how good he is

    Style wise this is going to be Crawfords toughest fight. All the pressure is on Crawford to look good, and Porter is going to go in there and do his job, hes got nothing to lose.

    I'm going to go against the grain here and say Crawford wins comfortably.

    Crawford is a 2/11 favourite, implied probability 84.6%. Even if it's a competitive fight for as long as it goes, the bookies expect there to be only one winner.

    Crawford has significant height, reach, punching power and stance advantages, Porter has more high level welterweight experience but probably a lot more more wear and tear. Porter's KD and especially his KO record against decent and even less than decent opposition is pretty dreadful and I'm not sure if he even has a better chin: Kavaliauskas is a big puncher and Porter has been down on several occasions (Broner, Ugas, Spence). Porter has been less active (15 months out vs 12 for Crawford) and he seems to be more of a boxing analyst than a fighter these days. The politics won't favour Porter, forcing him to be aggressive more than he would perhaps like to be at certain times and he won't be as confident as Crawford, seeing as he knows that he doesn't have big power, is a big underdog and has lost/drawn several times before. I expect he'll give Crawford a hard night, probably the hardest of his career (the competition being Postol, Benavidez and Kavaliauskas) but Crawford will win a clear UD or get a stoppage in the 2nd half.
