It’s ok to disagree. Porter brought the fight to Crawford and Porter was the aggressor.I disagree. Its the fight in the dog and not the dog in the fight. Every time you fight someone again there are differences, people grow. Crawford had a real tough time with Porter until the knock out, if he fought him again, he would change up a bit to avenge the loss. Remember, his dad stopped the fight, he was still ready. I boxed for a long time, became a national champion, and fought and lost to someone more than once, and each time I fought dude, the fight was different. He beat me hands down the first fight, but the second fight, I got in that ass, I should have won it, it was a 3/2 split, but I loss. Nonetheless, it was a different fight. I was in better shape and my approach was different. My two cents.
But was Porter tagging Crawford? Was he really hitting Crawford with lots of punches? Did he rock Crawford a couple of times or was he just the busier fighter?
Porter’s skill level isn’t going to get better, he’s an aggressive fighter that smothers his opponents and outworks them.
His skills aren’t going to improve enough to beat Spence or Crawford. He does stand a punchers chance but if Spence or Crawford doesn’t want to fight Porter’s style, they’ll pick him apart all night.
His Dad stopped the fight because Porter was about to get knocked the fuck out.
To use your words: “I’m not sure what fight you were watching”, but Shawn was knocked down twice in 30 seconds. He Wasn’t staying on his feet for another minute plus in the fight.
If you believe that he would’ve lasted the rest of the round that’s great and Shawn thanks you for you belief in him. But myself and his Dad knew that he was going down.
