Terence Crawford Vs Shawn Porter: Our Pick

When it comes to betting on this particular fight, we feel that it will be a much closer fight that what the odds suggest. The odds will tell you that Porter should lose easily, but Porter is no stranger to big fights and has caused a couple of big shocks in the past.

It is tricky to see which way this fight will go. Yes, Porter has never lost inside 12 rounds, but this record will definitely be put to the test against Crawford, who is a bit of a knockout specialist. The reigning champion does have the tools to grind out a victory, but this is a fight that could go the distance.

Prediction: Crawford to win by points.

Terence Crawford Vs Shawn Porter: Best Bet

Crawford knows how to knock out his opponents, but if there is one boxer with a stone chin it is Porter. As well as this, he also has plenty of stamina, which will be important against a fighter like Crawford. We do not think that this is a fight that will be over quickly, and those who watch it will definitely get their money's worth.

Best bet: Over 9.5 rounds in the fight.
