    Errol Spence Jr. and Shawn Porter waged the possible fight of the year, but it was Spence who got the nod in an action-packed victory by split decision to unify two welterweight world titles Saturday night at Staples Center.

    After a bit of a slow start, the fight turned into an all-out slugfest in the third round and never let up as the crowd of 16,702 spent long portions of the fight on its feet. But it was Spence -- who scored a knockdown in the 11th round -- winning 116-111 on two scorecards, while one judge favored Porter 115-112. ESPN had it 115-112 for Spence.
