Terence Crawford vs. Shawn Porter fight: Five biggest storylines to watch in the welterweight title

On Saturday, November 20, another historic day of boxing when the highly talented boxer-puncher Terence Crawford will be seen in Las Vegas defending his WBO Welterweight title for the fifth time from his challenger and former two-time title holder Sean Porter.

Crawford is ranked No. 2 on the Yahoo Sports list of the world's best fighters, behind Alvarez. Crawford has long been regarded as one of the best pound fighters in boxing for boxing, combining a 140lbs belt before advancing in the division. Terrence Crawford has claimed the WBO title and four. Bar Jose Benavides has successfully defended with KO in 12 rounds, Aamir Khan with TKO in 6 rounds, Egidijus Kavaliauskas with TKO in 9 rounds and Kyle Brook in 4 rounds.

Porter, who is ranked No. 4 by The Ring, a two-time former champion, lost his WBC title in a separate decision against Errol Spence Jr. in 2019, but he never had a successful professional career. There were no knockouts and the likes of Danny Garcia, Jordan Yugas and Adrian Bruner continued to boast of victories. .

Porter is going to put pressure because that's his style, but he'll have to go all the way and not be halfway there. To do so, he would have to go through Crawford's stinging job, which is sometimes like another power punch in his arsenal.

Crawford (37-0, 28 knockouts) How do you deal with crude aggression Porter figures? Can Porter (31-3-1, 17 KOs) crush the defending champion and go inside and turn it into a dog fight?
