>> watch that arm. >> one of the things that could become a factor in this fight, per the show stats, more punches thrown by poart. he's thrown 445 to 355 for thurman. so he's been busy. >> good double jab by porter, getting on the inside, and there's the jab from thurman. >> step back! step back. full step back. there you go. >> saw steve farhood's scores. one of the reason he gave the point thurman was a big comeback. he came back very well in the second half of the round. it's a close round. that one surely could have gone either way. >> lead right hand by porter. >> and that's a couple of times porter has done that this round.
>> counter left hand by thurman. just missed with that left hook. porter with the right upper cut. porter now swarming him. porter good defense. gooded had movement. avoiding the attack of thurman. muscling in with that left shoulder. >> again, that body-to-body contact. porter thrives on it. just missed with a left upper cut did porter. >> wants to push you around, push you out of the position and continue to punch and soak you. >> final 60 seconds of the night. >> is thurman cut, too? >> yes, he is, left eye as well. looks like a bad cut. >> we don't know if it came-- >> as i said, in this type of match-up, keith thurman cut for the first time in his career. bombs away in brooklyn!
you go back to your boxing. all right, go back to your boxing. relax. breathe, relax. take a swallow. >> well, the referee came over and told us it was a punch that caused the cut. and it is already cut there before shawn porter hits the head of keith thurman. so it will not be ruled a clash of heads, and we can see there that the cut was already there when their heads banged together. >> yeah, poarpt had landed a couple of sharp, hard right hands earlier this that round that might have done the job. >> and carlos vargas earning his money tonight, stemming the bleeding for the first cut in keith thurman's career. round 10, scheduled for 12, for thurman's welterweight
thurman ducks underneath that sweeping left hook from porter. trying to feint porter. >> shawn porter, by the way, two and one in 12-round fights. thurman is undefeated in 12-round fight as we head very close now to the championship round. >> by process of elimination he's undefeated. he's undefeated overall. >> naturally. and again porter trying to smother thurman on the ropes. thurman with piston-like punches to fight off the attack. >> it would be a really news flash if i told you he lost the 12-rounder. >> and porter has a little problem in trying to turn this into a greco-roman wrestling match. there's the pawn jab of thurman. doesn't follow up, however. >> that last round have any impact on thurman in terms of
overall taking something out of him? the cut, being pushed around by porter? we'll see. >> psychologically very-- >> nice right hand there connected oconnected on the jaw. >> those are the kind of thriewndz separate the men from the boys. >> counter left hook by thurman. >> thurman has had himself some good shots this round. >> both men have been cut in this fight. neither man has gone down. poart's knees have puckled. >> and now porter again has thurman on the ropes. thurman trying to hold on. porter keeping up the attack. porter mugs on the inside. and that's what he's doing. >> i got it. step back. >> porter treating thurman like an internet troll here with 45 seconds left in the tenth.
>> and on this now thurman trying to turn it back into a boxing match. there's a double pump jab from poart. >> the best thing you can do to a jabber is keep jabbing with him. nice jab by poart there. some blood back on the cut of thurman. oh, porter walked right into that left hand! thurman has him cornered. >> i think he was off balance. and porter able to turn the tables again, an off-balance shot. bringing the fans to their feet. and, boy, they are throwing leather, punches and punches. what a fight! ( bell ) >> good job, good job. good round. keep working. what round? >> 11 coming up, all right, 11
coming up. we need both these rounds. we want both these rounds. keep working. keep working. were. >> this is where the right hand created the cut. it starts to bleed. that's exactly where the cut was created. by that right hand of shawn porter. and you know, i was going to say, in-- in the last round, porter getting some more worked on, but there was where he was hit with that left hand that kind of knocks him off bbs. i agree now with pail. it was more of a balance issue. i think this porter wasn't hurt badly. already, thurman did land some big shots like that one. >> we have reached the championship rounds, both athletes championship caliber. thurman's undefeated record, and his welterweight crown at stake. has this been as good as advertised, guys? >> yes!
and there are so many nuances to this fight. that's part of what's made it interesting. >> this fight is competitive. they told keith thurman in the corner, dan birmingham, the trainer did, they need both of these last rounds. and they maintain, but it's close. you want to make sure and win them just in case. >> yeah, you would have to assume, and steve farhood believes thurman is ahead. could be a lot of different ways. >> let's bring in our unofficial scorer, steve farhood. why do you have it the way you do? >> single shots in two or three of the rounds have been critical where the other guy, the guy that got hit, may have done the better work in the course of the round. it's going to be a real challenge for the judges how they score the two or three rounds. >> two of the best analysts to my left. al bernstein, what does thurman have to do in these round to ensure he goes home as champion. >> i think it's a very good fight. and i think he has to not get himself caught on the ropes. >> he has to mug him. as al said.
porter needs to close the distance. on the outside, he's just not going to be as effective as thurman is going to be. and then get to work once he closes the distance. the thing is, it takes a lot of work to do that. does he have the energy here in the late rounds to do that and pull that off with that kind of work ethic. and psychologically-- oh, a counter right hand by thurman. and he stays standing! he's only been down once in his career. coming off his-- in his last fight against adrian broaner. he won the fight convincingly. but thurman tattooing porter with the shots. >> he just walked into two of those monster counters. >> it's going to take more than one time to drop portener this fight. >> shawn porter say tough cookie. >> i was saying, psychologically, when porter is fighting in the center of the ring and thurman is fighting like, this the judges feel like it's thurman's fight. if he gets pushed against the
rope, they feel more like it's a porter round. >> the perception becomes the reality. a lot of times that's how you win rounds. >> you know that better than anybody. >> thurman-- >> a couple of left hooks to the head by thurman, and yet poart continues to navigate the minefield, coming forward. now using the stunner step. herky jerky head movement, but unable to cut off the ring. >> guys, that takes a lot of energy. all that herky jerky stuff, and then you have to get in and actually punch, too. >> keith thurman is landing some very good counter punches. >> he is. >> 12th and final round straight ahead! ( bell ) >> this was a round in which keith thurman was able to be very effective from the outside. they will trade right hands, but
it's thurman's that gets there. and then he counters with that hook, and as paulie pointed out, those are the kind of punches you can thur normally knocks people out with. >> stay on the line. don't stay right here looking at him right here, okay? make sure you keep turning. don't just sit right there and look at him. as you keep turning pick your spot. go to work right there. it's the last round, the championship round. >> keep your hands up, keep your legs moving. good work, good work. come onow. come on. you're still the champion of the world. you got this fight. win this round, though. win this round. come on, baby. come on, baby, all yours. >> >> ladies and gentlemen, this is the 12th and final round. round 12! ( bell ). >> as they should be, the crowd in barclays on their feet. a few weeks ago varg expas sleeto, delivered a virtuoso
action fight. tonight you are seeing keith thurman and shawn porter throw their hats in the ring for fight of the year! >> thurman being intelligent. >> oh, that right upper cut, and yet porter keeps coming forward like an extra from the "walking dead." >> if you're close with poart, he's going to keep punching. you've got to keep that distance and change range on him and thurman has done a good job of that the last few rounds. >> of course, we don't know what the official scoring says, but can shawn porter win this fight if he's not attacking a lot in this round? >> right hand by poart. >> thurman is straighter. porter's is wider.
but both men have landed them. >> a counter left. >> that was clearly, as you pointed out, something in the game plan. and they've used it all night, thurman has. >> oh, good right hand from thurman. >> step back, step back. let's go. >> just past the midway point. of the 12th and final round. keith thurman's welterweight championship and his undefeated record hang in the bbs as porter mugs him on the ropes. >> and ironically, it's thurman coming forward, not porter. >> oh, and that left upper cut again on the inside by thurman. one minute remaining. >> that's where thurman doesn't want to be right now. porter pushing.
you know, they're making it physical. this is what porter has been wanting. this is the 12th round. and yet these two warriors are going at it like it's the first. >> and give rivery willis credit. he's letting them fight on the inside. >> a close 12th round. >> more than 1100 punches have been thrown in this fight combined. more than 800 power punches thrown. and let's let the crowd take you through the final 10 seconds of what has been a terrific fight on cbs. ( bell )
>> it took nearly 40 years for the sport of boxing to return to prime time here on cbs. after this fight we have just witnessed tonight, i don't think it's going to take 40 more. >> the numbers are fascinating because they will show that porter was busier. what ended up being landed was very similar, but i think we can say that thurman probably landed the bigger, more flashy shots. so we'll see how it all plays out in the judges' view. >> a bona fide fight of the year candidate. we will be back with the official decision right after this.

that. my score matched the three judges. i think we all knot there in different ways. >> i thought the scoring in this fight was fair. it was a very close fight. >> yeah, i thought it was fair, too. i thought thurman slightly edged it. but a great fight by both guys. >> they say the sequel is never as good as the original. i think a rematch might be better. let's go to brian custer. >> all right, mo. thank you very much. i'll tell you what, this was championship boxing at its best. i wouldn't have been mad if this thing ended in a draw. by what a performance by keith thurman and shawn porter. stay with us. we'll recap our night of boxing as we continue from the barclays center here in brooklyn.
