WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford has waited years to finally face a top name in the division. His opportunity finally arrives on Saturday night when he steps into the ring against two-time former welterweight champion Shawn Porter in a huge pay-per-view showdown.
Crawford, long a staple at the top end of pound-for-pound lists, won his welterweight championship in June 2018 with a TKO win over Jeff Horn. Fighting as a part of the Top Rank stable, he was locked out of fights with welterweight’s biggest names, all of whom fight under the Premier Boxing Champions banner. Still, Crawford’s skills were on constant display as he made four successful defenses of his championship, all by stoppage.
Porter, a PBC fighter, finally was the man given the task to face off with Crawford when the WBO made him a mandatory challenger. Porter won his first welterweight title in December 2013, beating Devon Alexander by decision. He lost that belt by split decision against Kell Brook two fights later. Porter also suffered a loss in his next bid for a title, dropping a hard-fought, close decision against Keith Thurman in June 2016.
Porter’s staying power in the division was shown in September 2018, beating Danny Garcia by decision to become WBC champion. He would hold that belt until losing a thrilling war with Errol Spence Jr. by split decision in December 2019.
Spence is the biggest item on the menu for either Porter or Crawford, Porter wanting a chance at revenge and Crawford wanting a showdown with the other top dog in the division. The winner takes home the WBO title and may get the Spence fight in the near future.
