Shawn Porter will try to dethrone Terence Crawford. Porter challenged Crawford for the WBO title, as they face off on November 20th at the Michelob Ultra Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Crawford looks to end any debate surrounding the legitimacy of his belt. Porter, on the other hand, wants to get his hands back on silverware.

In an interview with FightHype, Porter made his intentions very clear. “With this one, I don’t have to say, yeah I’m gonna knock this dude out or, I’m tryna knock this dude out just to sell tickets or just to get people to believe that I don’t consider us friends once we get in the ring.”

“I’m flat out tryna knock this dude out because he is where he is. He is who he is, he’s done everything that he’s done and I gotta have that.” Porter said. Crawford, on the other hand, looks to dominate Porter to set up a unification bout against Errol Spence Jr. the WBC and IBF king.

“I’ve been calling out the top welterweights since I moved up to 147 in 2018. And I’m excited that Shawn stepped up,” Crawford said. “This fight will bring out the best in me and showcase parts of my game that the world hasn’t seen yet. On November 20, I will silence my doubters and prove that I am the best welterweight in the world.”
