PHOTOS: Errol Spence, Jr. Workout In Arlington, Texas Before Showdown With Showtime Shawn Porter
Errol Spence Jr. (25-0, 21 KO's), the IBF Welterweight World champion looked lean and sharp as he hit the mitts today in front of fans in Arlington, Texas.
On September 28, 2019 he faces a true welterweight in Shawn "Showtime" Porter (30-2, 17 KO's), the guy who got unanimous decision wins against Adrien Broner and Danny Garcia, both overrated fighters. Why? Because he outworked them in the ring and never let them rest.
He will attempt to do that against Spence, but the main difference is that he will get hit harder than both Broner and Garcia combined. When Spence lands that cracking jab and follows that up with the straight left hand from his southpaw stance, the SHOW may be over.
This will be Spence's biggest test as a welterweight, including his fight against Kell Brook, which some will say was against a guy who was literally broken after having his eye-socket broken against Gennady "GGG" Golovkin a year before his fight with Spence. A fight he had no business being in, but the business of money made him take it.
Because of this, Spence is not being given his due credit, and after he basically walked down a much smaller Mikey Garcia, who also had no business moving up two weights to take on the much bigger fighter, there are doubters. Like Kell Brook, Garcia must be given credit by taking the challenge, unlike many overrated champions in this boxing era.
When asked if it would end early or late, Spence would noT give a prediction and said "If it's early or it's late, it's all good, as long as I knock him out."
As far as his training for this fight against the style of Porter, he said he did not make any specific changes, just to train hard, be focused and he expects it to be twelve hard rounds.
When asked what the Dallas hometown fans can expect on fight night, he said it's going to be "Man Down."
