Shawn Porter Comments on Potential Keith Thurman Fight

Thurman Porter PBC

Shawn Porter looked good against Adrien Broner in June and he’s been campaigning for a bigger fight ever since the victory. Mayweather never gave Porter an honest look for his September 12th fight but there are other big names available in the Al Haymon stable.

One name that intrigues many boxing fans is Keith Thurman. Thurman looked shaky in his last fight and his ‘One Time’ KO power hasn’t looked that impressive lately.

Porter addressed the possible matchup in an interview with

“That’s another situation where I hope a guy gives Al [Haymon] a call and says ‘hey, I want to fight Porter.’ If he makes that phone call, then hopefully we can get that done. I look forward to fighting Keith Thurman before the year is out. I think Keith will step and take that fight.” 

A fighter like Shawn Porter that isn’t afraid to mix it up is exactly what Thurman needs to test his boxing skills and push him to higher levels.

That’s not to say the Porter is in anyway a stepping stone. Porter has legit power and a relentless attitude that could take the fight to Thurman and pull the upset before he knows what hit him.

The matchup would be a great way for PBC to end the calendar year and build hype for their 2016 campaign.
