Former IBF world champion, Ohio's Shawn Porter, takes on tough guy Adrian Granados, for the WBC silver title, on the undercard of Wilder vs Stiverne II.

Porter starts, nimble, active, lands the jab, proves the stronger, has more success early, though Granados impresses with a good second round, out landing a ragged Porter.

Porter, faster on his feet, behind a better jab, a more experienced boxer at this level, slowly but convincingly taking over in rounds 3-5.

Granados lands some great counter shots in round 6, a particular eye cathcing right hand impresses, whilst Porter, still busy, not without success, far from it.

Porter looks like he is dominating in round 7, moving well, looking fresh, fast, defending well, and doing damage with hard, accurate power shots, Granados, still brave, still trying, but looking unable to stay in the fight. Porter continues to put up a masterclass display in rounds 8 and 9.

Porter seems like he senses he can stop Granados in round 10, and that doesn't look unlikely, as Porter nails him with massive punches, looking not so far away from a stoppage, midway through the round, but Porter, strangely, begins to constantly wince throughout the rest of the round, lose a lot of sharpness, lose a lot of composure.

Porter's clear frustration, extreme irritation declines his performance in the last 2 rounds, and Granados, a very long way behind, giving it everything, trying to rally, still he is hit with a lot of clean shots, hit with more pucnhes than he lands in round 11, as Porter lands 3 short, clean right uppercuts to the head in the middle of the round. Porter seems as if he is me talky restricted from performing ti the best of his physical and technical ability in the last round, as he is caught with a lot of pucnhes, punches he takes well, and he himself doesn't produce the quality he had earlier, it seems very likely Granados has narrowed the gap in the last round or two.

It is clear that Shawn Porter has won the fight, and by a sizeable margin, SkySports pundit, former world title contender, Matthew Macklin has Shawn Porter winning by a massive count of 11 points, many suggest it is a fair bit closer, but very few if any agree witn Granados, who clearly believes he he done enough to win the fight.

Shawn Porter is awarded a unanimous decision victory, by three identical scores of 6 points, fair scores, suggesting Porter won comfortably, it was not a close fight, but Granados, winning enough to make a 6 round fight a draw, certainly in the fight. Granados is gracious in defeat, and discourages dangerous crime in his post fight interview, which is good to see. Porter, needing ice on his left hand, confirms it is likely he has a broken hand, but goes home with a good victory, having won the silver title.

Prediction,

I think this is a really good match up.

I like Shawn Porter, awesome fighter, top guy, he always brings entertainment to the fans, some don't like his style, but he always either wins, or just comes up short, by a little bit. I think at this stage of his career, Porter might just be in his absolute prime, I don't believe he is as good as Keith Thurman, Errol Spence Jr, Terence Crawford, I don't think he will ever be quite good enough to beat any of them on their day, but isolating fighters of this calibre, anyone is going to struggle to have the beating of Porter, and I think he's just a notch down from the best really, at most, he's a broken down level below them. I think Porter is a great fighter, great pressure fighter, got the foot speed, the physical strength, fast hands, quick, solid, accurate jab, he uses feints, he makes it so hard for opponents to move off the ropes, as Adrien Broner learned, that was a great performance from Shawn Porter, that's probably his best win.

Porter does have weaknesses, he doesn't box on the back foot very well, he isn't a defensively consistent fighter, he isn't really a counter puncher, and these are always things any opponent will be able to capitalise upon, but Porter's speed, strength, stamina, relentlessness, durability, means opponents always struggle to find much to take advantage of, apart from the top dogs like Thurman. Porter does have great variety, he's a good body puncher, he's so nimble, active with the feet, which creates a problem for opponents when they want to pull the trigger, and Porter, he can box at distance, and up close, more so, but boxing at long range, for a 5'6 welterweight, never going to be his bread and butter. I think Porter has a great set of defensive skills, when he uses them, I just don't think his instincts or his experience builds him to be a thorough defensive fighter, though Porter is a really smart fighter, against Thurman, holding at the right times, having learned from his mistakes against Kell Brook, I saw a more educated Shawn Porter in the ring. Porter has power, especially in his right hand, he's not a devastating puncher, he never has been, but he is heavy handed, there is a lot of snap and venum behind his shots, and with his athleticism, he sustains his impactful, offensive success very well.

I thought Adrian Granados boxed really well against Adrien Broner, I didn't expect that from him, he didn't win, but I gave him 4/10 rounds, and I think we can say, for Granados, his record, 18-5-2, does not do him justice, at all, he hasn't lost a fight by anything other than a disputed decision, losing only, 2 early fights, one of them to Frankie Gomez, no shame in that, Felix Diaz, then unbeaten Brad Solomon (24-0), and of course Adrien Broner. Granados holds victories over Amir Imam, Mark Salser, he drew with Kermit Cintron as well. Granados is not a bad fighter at all. Granados can punch, he has a great engine himself, and he can really fight, he's 28, and he has experience in tough, rough fights, as we saw against Broner, when he wants to win, he will always come prepared, and he will give any fighter a tough task, there are some who believe Granados actually defeated Adrien Broner, it was a split decision, let's get that right, he knows he's the underdog in this fight, but fighters like Granados, if anything, they make that work in their favour.

I think Shawn Porter will win this fight, I think it will go the distance, I think it will be competitive, I don't think Porter will stop Granados, but I do think he will be the first to beat him via UD, and not only that, but also, I think he will be close to winning a shutout. I see Porter starting very fast, using feints, using the jab, committing every now and then, jumping forward, letting his hands go on Granados, while Granados will try to land on Porter coming in, have his success, but not enough of it, and he'll struggle to deal with the pressure, speed, strength of Porter, the hustle tactics as well which will be something he's used to, but a department which he's used to be beaten in, I don't think he'll struggle to withstand anything, Granados, but he'll struggle to work around Porter's physical attributes, and he won't win a round in the first half of the fight. I think from round 2 to round 6 or 7, Porter will throw a massive amount of punches, work at an outstandingly high pace, and he'll slow down just slightly in round 7, with a game Granados coming forward, still trying his best, but Porter, still maintaining a reduced but still high pace.

I think Granados's hopes of really getting back into the fight will be short lived as Porter recovers from what was minor fatuige much more quickly than he expects, and Porter works for 3 minutes at a raised pace, finding accuracy against and also tired Granados, but being prepared to miss some if it means he can land some. I think Porter might take somewhat a round off in round 9, as he backs up a bit for the first 2 minutes of the round, with Granados landing his fair share of punches, but being made to miss by a still mobile, illusive Shawn Porter, and Porter may steal the round back from a tired Granados with a high paced last minute with another incredibly quick recovery from fatuige. I think Porter will have a big last round in the tank, not coming close to having Granados on the floor, but landing more punches on him than he has in any other round, giving him a bit of a beating, showing great stamina, finishing very strongly, and confidently stepping onto the ropes after the final bell has sounded.

I think some will believe Porter has won every round, whilst others are more generous to Granados, believe he has done enough to nick maybe a couple. I think Shawn Porter will win a very wide unanimous decision, 98-92, 100-90, 99-91.

I think for Porter, his career has been great, and I would say he still has a good three years ahead of him, maybe 5 or 6 more fights before retirement I would estimate, but for what is next after this fight, assuming he wins, I think an awesome, 50/50 fight against Danny Garcia is the best option, I think they both want that fight, they are both at the same stage of their careers, both have lost close decisions to Keith Thurman, between them, they boast wins over Amir Khan, Andre Berto, Lucas Matthysse, Adrien Broner, Robert Guerrero, Devon Alexander, I know a fight between Porter and Garcia is close to the top of my potential fight wishlist, it would be such and interesting fight to watch, it really would, such an entertaining fight for all the fans as well, a lot to gain for the winner, both will definitely fancy their chances of winning, I think the fight should happen in May or June next year, I wouldn't be surprised if it did either. I believe Danny Garcia is fighting Brandon Rios in December, that's great news if that fight does get finalised, Rios, I would say, is maybe just slightly better than Granados, maybe, but they are of a similar level, so Porter and Garcia would stay active by fighting a similar calibre of opposition, but if Garcia doesn't fight again this year, then their is no chance of him fighting Shawn Porter as soon as summer 2018, because of the ring rust, so I really hope Garcia vs Rios happens, and Porter and Garcia officially agree to the fight, get it finalised, and then it happens next year.

Overall, that was a great performance from Shawn Porter! He is in his absolute prime now, he may even be better in the next couple of fights he has!
The precision from Porter was outstanding, his hand speed has increased, his feet, like lightening, he takes a punch very well, uses the jab, gets the better of his opponent. After 10 rounds, I thought Porter was dominant, I though that from round 7 onwards, rather than just simply being a level above his opponent as he was in the first half, he was absolutely taking over, the broken hand explains it, because there was clearly a problem with him, I think he lost the championship rounds, and the fight was, not at all close, but not really, ultimately a one sided fight either in my opinion. Granados was just fantastic in this fight, he knew Shawn Porter's style well, he knew his strengths, he isn't a "I'll eat what I want, then show up, try, be good for 2 rounds, then fade" kind of fighter, he is a 12 round fighter for sure, he loves a fight, takes a shot so well, I think he gives anybody a tough fight, Granados.

I think that was slightly more impressive from Porter than the performance against Berto, I think his footwork, use of the ring, head movement, just slightly better, the variation of distance with the left hook and right hand, he had a bad closing 6 minutes, understandably, as his hand was broken, but apart from that, he did great, I gave Granados a couple of the first 10, because of his clean counter punching, combined with enough activity, but Porter was a street ahead. Above all, though I think it wasn't actually a landslide in the end, not a lopsided fight, Shawn Porter beat Adrian Granados, he impressed, and he beat him by at least 4 points, officially, by 6.

I like Adrian Granados, he is an arrogant boxer, but a humble guy, that is what boxing, from an entertainment standpoint, is all about, no talking rubbish, showing respect, being a role model for kids, and being arrogant in the ring, adding showmanship to a fight, and making it wise, tactically. Shawn Porter, I think will have a great 2018, he has fought twice this year, that is good, the hand will need to heal, but he has been active this year, he should be sharp, in a good rhythm in his next fight. I don't think Danny Garcia particularly wants to fight Shawn Porter, and it is a shame, because what a match up, what a fight it could be, Porter wants that fight very badly, he believes he could do a number on Garcia, and based on that performance, I'd give him a 50% chance of beating the Philadelphian, a 90% chance of making it close. Garcia wouldn't fight Porter next, not with the difference in activity, so that fight, I doubt will happen, but there are other fights out there for Porter, he deserves the Thurman rematch, he'doesn't have a shot at winning that fight, but win or lose, after winning 5 rounds on all the cards, competing in possible fight of the year, a rematch is not something anybody is against.
