I can't see Porter losing.

Normally, I'd say this ends in decision but Porter been bs-ing lately. Overconfident? I don't know but he has been working on increasing ko power.

Porter is high volume not as precise with decent power

Ugas is low volume but precise with low power. (Supposedly beat Crawford in amateurs) 

Porter is going to bum rush Ugas and get it over with. If Porter took Thurman's best shot and still pressed I think he will walk down Ugas. Also, he cut Thurman and NO it wasn't from a headbutt, watch the tape. 

I've even heard people say Ugas will KO Porter. That's crazy talk!! 

Anyways, should open very interestingly and it's FREE on Fox tonight. Under the radar fight tbh 

All I know is anything short of a KO/TKO for Porter won't look good for him. 

Leaning more toward a TKO in 10th.

 

Any quick thoughts and predictions? 

 

Also, I noticed this forum isn't very active on boxing talk unless it's big names unfortunately. Does anyone know of an active boxing forum?

I really dont think too much of Porter.  Yea he works hard, but misses alot vs world class and great fighters.  Would have really liked to do more research on Ugas, all you really need to do to beat Porter is be able to control distance, a chin, and poise.  Brook beating Porter was just a perfect blueprint vs his style.  Garcia was doing it too but gassed, and ended up getting hit more and pushed back just a tad bit too much.  Felt that fight was a draw

I never had a chance to watch the fight but Porter won via split decision. This guy smothers his own work and doesn't sit on his punches. You were right, he is just way too inaccurate. And to think, he's calling out Spence, that has to be the JOKE of the year. Totally ducked Spence.

He won't be holding onto that belt much longer...
