Shawn Porter Dominates Sebastian Formella
Two-time welterweight world champion "Showtime" Shawn Porter (31-3-1, 17 KOs) won a unanimous decision over Sebastian Formella (22-1, 10 KOs) in an IBF Welterweight Title Eliminator Saturday night headlining FOX PBC Fight Night and on FOX Deportes from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles
It was all Porter as he fought intensely throughout the fight, Formella was tough in going the distance but the former champions experience and skill was too much for the German fighter as Porter dominated in rout to the decision win.
All three judges scored the bout the same way in favor of Porter, by the score of 120-108.
"He was a tough fighter," said Porter. "After about six rounds my dad told me that he's going to keep taking these punches, so I just needed to keep the pressure on him."
"I'm still here and I'm not going anywhere," said Porter, who dropped a close decision to Spence in a unification bout last year, and defeated Garcia to capture the WBC title in 2018. "There's no telling what they'll see from me in a rematch," added Porter later. "I think both guys can also make adjustments. That's what makes rematches so great, the fans have seen what both of you can do and they want to see who will make the right adjustments. I definitely think that I will be a little different against either guy."
