Porter vs Berto fight live at the Barclays Center
The welterweight division is really buzzing right now; with tonight’s 50/50 unification shoot-out between Danny Garcia and Keith Thurman set to thrill, a Manny Pacquiao-Amir Khan clash on the horizon and, set to be officially announced tonight before the WBC/WBA title showdown, Shawn Porter Vs. Andre Berto.
According to RingTV.com, the fight has been finalised and will go ahead on April 22 at Barclays Centre in New York. Porter-Berto is not as big as tonight’s fight or the Pac-Man-Khan fight, but the battle of former champions just might result in a great action fight. Porter, last seen slugging it out with Thurman in last June’s modern day classic, is always in great fights, while Berto is a dangerous puncher with a huge heart.
Porter vs Berto fight night: Berto doesn’t get stopped often (just once, by Jesus Soto Karass in a brutal battle, one that saw Berto suffer a shoulder injury) while Porter, as he showed against Thurman, has a phenomenal chin. This one might not only be a great action fight, but also one that goes the full 12 rounds. The fight will be a WBC welterweight title eliminator. Garcia currently holds the WBC belt, but that could change after his fight against Thurman is finished. Porter said he is focused on winning another world title after being the IBF welterweight champion from 2013-14.
“It’s a fight my team has been wanting for months now,” Porter told USA TODAY Sports via text message Wednesday. “I think it’s a great fight for the fans and the sport. Not often two very explosive fighters line up against each other. The 33-year-old has scored just four wins in his last eight bouts, including a shutout defeat to Floyd Mayweather. Berto packs a punch, though, and against a fighter like Porter that applies non-stop pressure, he’ll have ample opportunity to land a big shot.
