Porter had trouble with distance and started to smoother his own work, then tried to force the action, with power which failed, because Brook was equally as strong as him on the inside.
As the fight went on Porter tried adjustments in the ring, sugested by his father and head trainer Kenny Porter, which didn't really add anything new to the fight, as Brook kept landing the cleaner harder shots. Brook took a pro…Continue
