The World of boxing can now add Paulie Malignaggi, to the list of people who have seriously under estimated the power of IBF Welterweight Champion Showtime Shawn Porter. Porter made easy work of the fight last night. For weeks Malignaggi and his camp were talking all kinds of crap of how the former holder of 2 belts was going to take the IBF Championship away from the one they call "Showtime".
Paulie couldn't have been more wrong. There is a reason people can't beat Porter and last night they saw a slight example of why. Porter is no dummy. This kid has fought his entire life to get where he is today. Team Porter does their homework and they do their physical work to get ready for each of their upcoming fights.
Showtime, hardly broke a sweat against Malignaggi. Paulie didn't even look like he belonged in the same ring with Showtime. Porter could have finished this guy in the 2nd round if he wanted to. Porter won every round and had Malignaggi behind on the score-cards from the start of round 1.
Porter has skill, he hasn't had to use yet. This kids tank is full and he continues to prove he is ready to take on any and all that think they are contenders. His 4th round TKO over Malignaggi proves that he (Porter) has the experience necessary to beat any opponent that steps in the ring with him.
The world of Boxing should make things interesting with a unification bout. Why should 4 guys all hold belts in the welterweight division. There should be one welterweight champion of the world that holds all four belts.
It would be more interesting if they would hold some unification bouts that would clearly show, who the best welterweight in boxing is.
Showtime Shawn Porter could stand toe to toe with anyone. Team Porter works harder than anyone else in the game. They do their homework and they never underestimate their opponents. It's time to unify the belts. Lets see who the best in the world truly is.
I think people are going to be very surprised, much in the same way Malignaggi was surprised just how good of a fighter this Showtime Shawn Porter really is. Unify the Belts. Bring on the unification bouts. Stop the comedy you people call boxing. Lets see one welterweight champion of the world.......
My money would go on Team Porter......
