The all-action penultimate frame of the September 28th Welterweight Title Unification topped the PBC fans list of barn-burning three-minute stanzas.
There were some spectacular three-minute stanzas in 2019, but PBC fans believe the 11th round of the welterweight title unification between Errol Spence Jr. and “Showtime” Shawn Porter was the PBC’s Round of the Year winner for 2019 as voted by fans.
The September 28th showdown won with a 44.7-percent tally, beating out the first round of Manny Pacquiao’s 147-pound unification win over Keith Thurman, the fifth round of Julian William’s 154-pound unification victory over Jarrett Hurd, the second round of Jamal James and Antonio’s DeMarco’s all-action brawl and the second round of Adam Kownacki and Chris Arreola’s record-setting heavyweight fight.
Spence and Porter wasted no time at the start of the 11th round, each exchanging some stiff shots. Things pick-up at the two-minute mark as the two 147-champs went toe-to-toe before Spence scored a big left cross at the minute mark that forced Porter’s glove to touch the canvas.
“I think I had a little more than what he expected, but he handled it. Congratulations to him and his team. We’re proud of what we did. I think that knockdown was the difference,” Porter said of his narrow defeat.
