It’s been a little over a month since his latest performance and Shawn Porter is back to doing what he does best as he has returned to light training out in Las Vegas.

On March 13, Porter scored a 5th round stoppage over Ecuador’s Erick Bone to improve his ledger to 25-1-1 with 16 knockouts. The win helped erase the bad taste that came following Porter’s mild upset loss to UK star Kell Brook this past August.

It was recently revealed that former IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter (25-1-1, 16 KO’s) has been offered an IBF eliminator bout against former two-division titlist Tim Bradley (31-1-1, 12 KO’s).
