This fight may not have the mainstream hoopla to be billed as the “Fight of the Year” but if you ask boxing fans, there’s probably not going to be a more entertaining fight in 2019 than the welterweight unification fight between pound-for-pound list staple Errol Spence Jr. (25-0, 21 KOs) and all-action brawler Shawn Porter (30-2-1, 17 KOs).

Spence is well on his way to becoming one of the best boxers of this generation and there’s an argument to be made that he is the best pound-for-pound fighter on the planet.

Even though there’s a gulf in talent between Spence and Porter, there’s no pugilist who embodies the “anything can happen in boxing” cliche than Porter. The 31-year-old Akron, Ohio native is fearless, relentless and violent in the square circle.
