ERROL SPENCE and Shawn Porter both made weight for what promises to be a thrilling welterweight world title unification. They will fight for the IBF and WBC belts at the Staples Center in Los Angeles tonight (September 28).

Both weighed in exactly on the 147lbs limit.

“Shawn is a champion just like me, and now we’re going to get it on. I’ve been wanting that WBC belt for a long time and now he’s going to hand it over to me on Saturday night, or I’m going to take it from him,” Spence declared.
