Two-time welterweight champion (up to 66.7 kg), American Sean Porter (31-3-1, 18 KO) spoke in a complimentary way about fellow and divisional neighbor, compatriot Terence Crawford (37-0-0, 28 KO).
“Yes, Brooke did well, but for Crawford it was a matter of time. This is my dude and I’m a fan. He’s a damn good boxer and athlete. Sometimes you look at a guy and evaluate him as a boxer, and sometimes as a fighter, but Crawford knows how to do everything and knows how to do it at the right time.
When you look at him, you can see how he thinks. Indeed, after the fight, he says: “It took me a while to find a distance, after which I started to work.” That’s what professional boxing is all about, ”Porter said.
