It is without a doubt a mismatch. Porter is still one of the top fighters in the division, while the undefeated Formella has never faced an opponent with the skills set of Porter.

The last time the American was seen in action was in September when he lost to Errol Spence via SD. Formella, on the other hand, was last seen inside the ring in the beginning of 2020 when he recorded his 22 victory.
