I think this is a great matchup. Thurman has the boxing ability and the movement while Shawn Porter is the aggressor and hes going to bring the heat. To be honest with you its a 50-50 fight, but I would give the edge to Keith Thurman by a very close decision.

This is a great fight, one I cant wait to watch. If Shawn can stick to his boxing I think he can become world champion again on points, but Keith is heavy-handed and he could walk Shawn into one its really a pick em fight for me.

I think this is a great fight between young fighters with good skill. Shawn throws a lot of punches while Thurman is a boxer who can punch too. I know Shawn will be aggressive and it should make for a great fight. If Keith can box and keep Shawn Porter on the outside I see Keith Thurman winning. If Shawn stays on the inside and stays in the chest of Keith, I see him winning.

Shawn is going to come, but I think Keith will be on his toes and box, but also drop hard shots as well when Shawn comes in. Keith can be very versatile in there and has a lot of great skills, while Shawn is more like a bull. Keith will hurt or knock Shawn down but will keep coming all night.

Shawn is a pressure fighter and Thurman used to be a pressure fighter but now he boxes. Its really hard for me to decide who is going to come out on top. Thurman has good power. It all depends on how Shawn is able to take Thurmans punches. I think Thurman because of the power, but Shawn will bring it for 12 rounds.

This is a fight the fans are going to love watching. Both Thurman and Porter bring exciting styles to the ring. I think if Porter can keep the fight on the inside hell have a better chance to come out victorious. But Keith Thurman is a very smart and powerful fighter and will make the right adjustments. I just think Thurman is going to outbox Porter. Im picking Thurman to win by decision in a very tough fight.

Im not sure who the favorite is, but Im going with Porter. I like his style and I think its going to be interesting to see how Thurman holds up with the pressure Porter is going to bring.

Its a very exciting fight. Both fighters are come forward type fighters and they swing for the fences when they throw. I dont know who will come out on top because they have similar styles. Shawn Porter has decent power, but out of the two Keith has the more power. Well see. This is boxing.
