Keith "One Time" Thurman (26-0, 22KO; 27 years old) vs Shawn "Showtime" Porter (26-1, 16KO; 28 years old)

Matchup between 2 of the Top 5 ranked welterweights. Thurman is the more athletically gifted fighter, with more power. He has more of a finesse style of fighting, but backs it up with above average power.

Porter is more of a mauler, stocky build, likes to fight inside and work the body.

If Thurman can keep Porter off of him, and find his range he should win this fight if only on the fact he is a better boxer, with more gifts than Porter. Porter can be relentless though and is always moving forward, he could make it a long night for Thurman.

I'm taking the better, more exciting and talented fighter though in what I think should be a very good fight. Despite his power advantage I don't think he will knock Porter out.

Thurman by decision +165 2*
