THUR­MAN SUR­VIVES PORTER TEST

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Keith Thur­man de­fended his WBA wel­ter­weight ti­tle with a 12round unan­i­mous de­ci­sion over Shawn Porter in a bout that was fierce and packed with ac­tion from the be­gin­ning un­til the fi­nal bell. Both fight­ers landed pre­cise com­bi­na­tions and also missed wildly. Each was com­ing off lengthy lay­offs, and their ea­ger­ness to show their skills made for an en­ter­tain­ing evening. In a fight of the year con­tender Thur­man earned the de­ci­sion 115-113 on all three cards.
