IBF welterweight world champion Errol Spence Jr. could possibly be the pound for pound number one fighter in the near future. Spence won three consecutive national championships and also represented the US at the 2012 Olympics.

This past Saturday at the iconic Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, we had a thrilling contest between two of the top welterweight fighters of the world, as Shawn Porter overcame former champion Danny Garcia and will now look to go on to bigger and better things.

The beginning of this matchup showed how this thrilling contest was going to be an exciting, action-packed fight where controversy would loom. Both fighters had suffered losses to reigning WBA champion Keith Thurman, but coming into this match they were still top, elite-level fighters in the prime of their careers. The contradictory styles of each man was on display as they were battling in a high-stakes contest for the prestigious WBC title.
