Thurman Edges Porter In A War!

Thurman Edges Porter In A War!

In a fight of the year level war, Keith “One Time” Thurman edged a unanimous decision victory over Shawn Porter.
The bout was a war in every sense of the word, with both fighters giving as much as they received.  Many fans had the fight scored a draw, which shows how close it was.  With the win, Thurman retains his WBA Welterweight World Title and (is my opinion) is the man to beat in the division.  There is no shame in the loss for Porter, as I still view him as a top-5 welterweight.  A rematch is a welcome recommendation because of the entertainment of the fight, however I would like for Thurman to aim for a unification bout with WBC Champion Danny “Swift” Garcia.  The bout had the largest viewership of any PBC card this year, averaging 2.4 million viewers.  That’s fantastic news considering the recent lull in competitive bouts.
