“The Truth” is scheduled to face WBC titleholder Shawn Porter (30-2-1) in a fight that will be taking place at Staples Center in Los Angeles on September 28. Yesterday the pair had their first press-conference and Spence Jr. admitted he’s aware of the challenges Porter brings, but the Dallas native believes his hand will be raised in the air.
“Shawn Porter is a guy who tries to rough you up. That’s what he’s always done,” said Spence at the kick-off news conference.
“With Yordenis Ugas he tried to box and he said he didn’t like that style. He said he is going back to his original style. If he brings that style to me, it’s going to be a great fight because I’m going to bring it right back to him.”
“This is something I’ve been wanting to do, clean out the division, and get all the belts,” said Spence.
“I feel like Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather fought each other when it made sense, and it was a big fight. I feel like the same thing can happen with me and Terence Crawford in the future. Danny Garcia doesn’t have a title for me to fight him. I still want to fight Danny Garcia after I unify. I want to clean out all the top names in the division,” said Spence.
There is a big chance that the winner of the Spence-Porter fight will face the WBA “Super” champion, Manny Pacquiao.
