Former IBF welterweight world champion, Ohio's Shawn Porter, takes on tough, durable Adrian Granados, on the undercard of WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder's rematch against the fighter he beat for the title in 2014. The fight is for the vacant WBC silver title.

Porter starts sharply, moving, feinting, and landing fast punches, out working Granados and getting off to the better start. Porter is still fast on his feet in round 2, but Granados does a good job of hitting Porter on the counter, and making it hard for Porter to move back out of range without taking a clean shot.

Porter is busier and quicker to the punch in round 3, is very nimble, and let's fast combinations go at the right time. Granados is not discouraged by Porter's speed and energy, and he is able to have his say in round 4, but it is still Porter who does a lot more work, and seems to be landing the heavier shots as well.

Round 5 is another close one, as Porter continues to throw combinations at unpredictable angles, out working Granados, Granados, landing some return shots, but probably not enough. Granados lands a brilliant counter right hand, right on the button in round 6, Porter, still active, light on his feet, but being countered with the more precise shots.

Porter does great in rounds 7 and 8, moving backwards and forwards, almost impossible for Granados to catch, and Porter, attacking at the right times, landing clean, quality flurries of punches, Granados holds up against the punches, and is trying, but Porter dominates.

Porter continues his work in round 9, and seems to raise his pace and work rate if anything, Granados, having taken a lot of clean punches, and having to soak up a lot more punishment, but still holding up. Porter looks like he is close to stopping Granados, as he hurts him, but he doesn't put Granados down, and just as it seems to be going great for Porter, he suddenly backs off.

There is clearly a problem with Porter, there is a spring in his step, doesn't look gassed, but is using one hand when he throws, and doesn't throw often. Porter doesn't attack Granados in the championship rounds, he backs off, and Granados goes on the offensive, out works Porter and lands a couple of good punches.

Despite a bad finish, a strange finish, Porter impresses with his performance, and seems to have won comfortably, Granados thinks he's won, but that seems unlikely to be accurate.

All the judges score Porter a winner by an identical margin of 9-3, unsurprisingly. Porter and Granados both give great post fight interviews, Porter explains that he has a probably broken hand, which explains his poor last 2 rounds after what had been a great performance.

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.
