Timothy Bradley Jr.'s take: How does Terence Crawford stack up against Shawn Porter?

Terence Crawford defends his WBO welterweight championship against Shawn Porter on Saturday in Las Vegas (9 p.m. ET, ESPN+PPV). It stands as the biggest challenge to date for Crawford, ESPN's No. 2 pound-for-pound boxer.

Crawford (37-0, 28 KOs), 34, of Omaha, Nebraska, hasn't fought since a fourth-round TKO victory over Kell Brook in November 2020. For Porter (31-3-1, 17 KOs), also 34, of Akron, Ohio, this is his first fight since defeating Sebastian Formella by unanimous decision in August 2020.

Can Crawford retain his title and undefeated record? Or will Porter, who has taken some of the biggest names at 147 pounds to the limit, dethrone him?

ESPN analyst and two-division world champion Timothy Bradley Jr. breaks down everything you need to know about both fighters ahead of their title clash.

I remember sparring Terence Crawford years ago, and as we got going I was like, "OK, I'm going to push the pace now." And he responded by raising his game. And as I kept raising my game in response, he would raise his.
