The upcoming welterweight title unification between IBF beltholder Errol Spence and WBC beltholder Shawn Porter on September 28 has just found a home in the U.K.

Sky Sports has picked up the card for its audience, presented by Premier Boxing Champions, while it’s slated on a FOX PPV here in the United States. Adam Smith of Sky Sports offered the thoughts on the addition:

“We’re absolutely delighted to be showing the massive PBC unification clash between Errol Spence Jr and Shawn Porter live on Sky Sports.

”We know both champions well from past appearances on Sky Sports, two of the finest fighters in the red-hot welterweight division with contrasting styles which should gel into an explosive encounter in Los Angeles.”

Spence (25-0, 21 KOs) enters this fight coming off a unanimous decision win over Mikey Garcia back in March, and says he’s looking to become undisputed welterweight champion before he starts moving up the scales. Meanwhile Porter (30-2-1, 17 KOs) comes into the fight off a tough split decision win over Yordenis Ugas earlier this year as well.

You can watch both of these fighters talk about their impending battle here, as they sat face-to-face with Brian Campbell to discuss their bout.
