Today, starting at 11:30 a.m. ET, Showtime Sports will be live streaming the kickoff press conference for Danny Garcia vs. Shawn Porter, a welterweight showdown set for September 8th with the WBC title on the line.
Porter (28-2-1, 17 KOs) has wanted this shot at Garcia for some time now and is finally getting it. He’s most recently coming off of a stoppage win over Andre Berto early last year before taking Adrian Granados the distance in November for a unanimous decision win.
Meanwhile Garcia (34-1, 20 KOs) is coming off a knockout win over Brandon Rios in February, a match-up really designed to be a get-well fight after his decision loss to Keith Thurman the year before.
If I can promise you anything about this fight it’s that the build up should be relatively entertaining, with the father/trainers of each fighter never at a loss for words — so things should start getting personal in no time.
