- Shawn Porter: (+300)
Spence and Porter have both been active champions, especially with PBC keeping fighters active and fresh. After Spence defeated an undersized Mikey Garcia in March, Spence and Porter got right into it, see below.
Spence has immense boxing IQ, probably the best among Terrance Crawford and Lomachenko. This will be a major advantage against Porter, who has once been criticized as one-dimensional, where he operates best fighting from the inside with powerful combinations. Expect Spence to command the ring and keep the distance using his long jab, knowing that Porter has already lost to Keith Thurman in the past will give him added confidence too.
