Want me to make a video? :haha: Nah, not necessary. I think it's gonna be a good, competitive fight but I believe Thurman is just a little better at least, so he will take a UD over Porter. He might well score a kd also. He hasn't been dropped yet, has he, Thurman?

Porter got dropped by Broner late in their fight.

 

I think Thurman wins this by UD, with a late knockdown securing the victory. I'm actually attending this fight. Should be a fun atmosphere.

Ive got a sneaky feeling this may be a bit of a dud.

 

On paper it looks good, I would really expect Thurman to KO Porter, but something at the back of my mind thinks one of them wins a UD in a fight that doesnt live up to the hype.

--- I'd say Porter is more likely to do the knocking out.

 

I expect a decision though with Thurman running for much of the bout. The decision favors him as the money fighter sad to say. Be nice to see some fair officiating out of Vegas.

Originally i thought Thurman would win a unanimous decision with a late knockdown securing the victory. Since the postponement of fight, i've been leaning towards Porter getting decision.

Not easy to pick but I think Porter knows enough to be able to close the distance on Thurman, make it rough and outwork him to a close decision

close fight. for me thurman will win. i think porter smoothers his work too much by rushing in and trying to impose his physical strength on the opponent. granted it will wear them down but for me he doesnt get off as clean a work as if he stayed back even a couple of inches.

I thought I'd missed this, so delighted to find it postponed. I don't rate Thurman that highly and never have, but I think he has enough offensive ability to keep Porter on the back foot and win a late stoppage.

I think Keith Thurman is too aggressive and strong for Porter. Although Porter's a good boxer I don't think he will be able to make it late into the fight. Maybe KO/TKO round 7?

The thing about this fight is how good keith is prepared. Keith is a very smart fighter and not that knock out artist the media will tell us. I would be suprised if he can stop porter. I think that Keith could win a UD if he stick and move all night. If Poter can cut the way then it would be a long night for Thurman because he´s a fight who didn´t like pressure fighters

One time is the most avoided fighter in the division. Porter has showed guts to get into the ring with him.

Mayweather didn´t want to see Keith Thurman even in his dreams.. He knew that KT was the one who could erase the 0 from his inmaculate record.

Thurman by TKO within 7 rounds
