The welterweight division landscape will change after Saturday night in Los Angeles as IBF Champion Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr. faces off against WBC Champion Shawn “Showtime” Porter in a massive unification bout at 147 pounds.

The massively promoted contest taking place at the Staples Center and airing on Fox pay-per-view is a major one. Not only because it’s behind a paywall for the fight, but also as the winner of this bout will down the line likely have a chance at boxing royalty in Manny Pacquiao.
