Shawn Porter is a champion again. Last Saturday night, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Porter beat Danny Garcia by unanimous decision to capture the vacant WBC welterweight title.
What’s next for Porter? He has some mandatory business he needs to handle, but most want him to try to unify the title against IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr., who is very interested in the fight.
So, who is the best at 147? Is it Terence Crawford? Spence? Porter?
After the fight, Porter ranked the top five fighters at 147.
Here’s Porter’s list:
1. Errol Spence Jr.
2. Shawn Porter
3. Keith Thurman
4. Danny Garcia
5. Terence Crawford
Interesting list, especially having Crawford at number five. I would move Crawford up to number two, and have Thurman at three because of his victory over Porter, Porter at four, and Garcia at five.
