What a brawl! Porter, Mr NiceGuy outside the ring, turns into a savage animal everytime he steps in the ring. He used everything he got… fists, head, elbows against the aging Berto…
Brutal! But I just finished watching the Valdez-Marriaga fight… and it was even better!
I like Porter’s boxing and aggression, but he is a head-butting machine. It’s hard to argue his butts are all “accidental” when his style involves grabbing, wrestling and mauling.
There was a recent YouTube interview that had some closeups of his eyes. The scar tissue is like third-degree burns — as if he’d passed a cigarette lighter over them. This scarring isn’t from absorbing a lot of punches like a Gatti or Ward: it’s from banging his face repeatedly on skulls.
I agree. I think those are totally intentional in a sense that while he’s not looking to literally headbutt his opponents, he has to be well-aware that the heads will clash when he moves in like that time and time again. Reminds me of Holyfield. He should be penalized for using such a tactic.
I hate Porters style. Its so ugly and disgusting. But works for him..
Porter landed more headbutts than punches. I like his aggression and body work but honestly he hurt, frustrated, and disoriented Berto with the Butts. I’d like to see Porter vs and outside fighter like Spence who’d keep a jab and straight right in his mouth all night so he can’t get close and pull that rough house stuff. Again I do like the kid but his style gets a bit barbaric and out of control
this was the only way porter was going to win this fight. he tried to confuse berto by trying to box him when the fight started. porter only know one way of fighting . he wont be able to get away from a good boxer with fresh legs that can move on him like thurman.
Porter is brutal.You cant really box him unless you have great boxing skills.He takes it to you and you must be ready to handle pressure.
