It's fight week and I'm currently get caught up on all the interviews and grand arrivals and such! Most don't give Porter a chance, but we're two days away and predictions tend to sway just a bit as the fight draws closer. 

 

Remember, the weigh-in is tomorrow, so others' predictions may change by then as well. 

 

Thoughts?

 

PS: Predictions for Dirrell/Benavidez and Molina/Lopez are welcomed here as well!

I think Spence wins a close decision. Porter isn't an elite fighter but he has elite intangibles and does enough in each area to not get blown out of the water. He's also determined and tough as nails. I think he'll start the fight trying to show Spence a wrinkle by boxing and using angles but ultimately Spence's amateur pedigree will allow him to adjust. Both fighters will come out of this fight having earned each other's respect as well as the boxing public.

Spence by TKO/KO. The press conference was funny as hell. Spence is sly comedian. Called Porter "an in-shape street fighter." Also said "he fights like he's drowning and doesn't know how to swim."  

Porter will give his best. Think he'll touch Spence up a bit, but it won't be enough. Spence's bodywork will break Porter down. Poppa Porter throws in the towel in the 11th. 

 

Benavidez hasn't really been tested. Hopefully, Dirrell can do a little something. Think Benavidez stops him late or gets a UD victory.

 

Molina KO's Lopez. This will be a war. Rock 'em Sock 'em robots type of fight. Both guys are shop worn, but Molina can still crack.

I think Spence is going to put on a clinic against Porter. Porter is good and tough but Spence is a cut above him in every facet of the game. I see a stoppage in the late rounds. Porter will not land as many clean shots as he thinks. Spence's defense is underrated... If Porter boxes he gets picked apart... if he comes forward to slug he is going to be hit harder than Keith Thurman hit him on the way in...TKO between rounds 8- 10
