IBF welterweight champion Shawn “Showtime” Porter hopes an impressive performance against Britain’s Kell Brook on August 16 will lead to a lucrative showdown with pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Speaking earlier today on an international media conference call on Monday at StubHub Center in Carson, California, Porter said: “I don’t consider my fights auditions, they’re performances. Yes Floyd Mayweather is on the clock, we’re all hoping we’re next in line…I’m undefeated against undefeated boxers. I look forward to carrying my belt out of the ring August 16.”
Brook of course is confident derailing Porter’s plans and countered: “August 16 it’s me and Shawn Porter in the ring, I’m more than ready…I think the fans around the world are going to see what I can really do.”
