LAS VEGAS — After much hoopla and mystery regarding the weight protocol, Adrien Broner and Shawn Porter kept up their original contract by both making the 144 pound catchweight. In the opening bout, prospect Errol Spence takes on last-minute replacement Phil Lo Greco

BRONER: 143.5

PORTER: 144

PREDICTION: Broner’s best chance is hoping the catchweight has drained Porter. From the looks of things, that isn’t the case. Broner is quicker, but his lack of combination punching and size will hurt him against a naturally bigger and aggressive opponent Some are predicting a Broner-Maidana replay and I think it will be in spots. Broner will have his moments any time Porter isn’t in his chest mauling away, but it won’t be enough. PORTER UD.

SPENCE: 149

LO GRECO: 152

PREDICTION: Going by the weights, these two will be welterweights in name only tomorrow night. The talent disparity is wide in Spence’s favor, leaving us one question mark on if he can get the stoppage. My vote is yes. SPENCE TKO5
