Shawn Porter Talks To TBC – Former IBF world welterweight champion Shawn Porter returns to the ring this coming April 22nd on Showtime boxing as he faces the challenge of another former world titleholder in Andre Berto.
The bout sees both men at a crossroads in their career and in need of a win. Berto fought just once in 2016, defeating rival Victor Ortiz in a rematch, however he is best remembered for his September of 2015 loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr that saw him lose a unanimous decision. Porter is fresher on everyone’s mind as his last fight was his memorable June of 2016 tangle with Keith Thurman that saw him come out on the short end of three judges cards that had it 115-113. Porter finds himself in need of a win to avoid a two fight slide in a crowded 147-pound welterweight class.
