Keith Thurman is widely considered one of Boxing’s brightest young stars but many have doubts about him after a few lackluster 2015 performances. “One Time” hopes to quiet those doubts by defeating the extremely talented Shawn Porter.
Porter is coming off of a huge victory over Adrien Broner and is looking to build momentum as he chases a title shot, Porter’s only loss came against Kell Brook in a welterwieght title fight.
The two-sides have been working to finalize a deal for the past few months and initial reports had the fight set for Decmeber 12th. New reports are saying that the fight will be moved to early 2016 so that it can occur in Las Vegas.
Sources have informed BoxingScene.com that the planned showdown will move from current rumored plans to a yet-to-be-determined date and location. The likely scenario is for the fight to land at MGM Grand in Las Vegas during the first quarter of 2016.
The UFC has the MGM Grand booked on both December 12th and January 2nd, which most likely means the Thurman vs Porter fight will occur on January 9th or 16th.
