During a recent swing through the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, Hustle Boss crossed paths with former IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter.

Porter (26-1-1, 16 KO’s) faces off with WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman (26-0, 22 KO’s) on June 25 inside of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

As he readies for the biggest fight of his career, Porter took some time to discuss the possibility of retired pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather returning for a possible 50th bout. The two names that seem to be thrown out the most are that of WBC welterweight champion Danny Garcia and UFC star Conor McGregor.

Porter sees Garcia as the ideal choice.

“I think Danny Garcia make sense,” Porter stated. “The way I was thinking about it yesterday, because he has the WBC title and that’s been known as Floyd’s title. I could see him coming back to get that title one more time.”

As far as McGregor, that’s another scenario.

“It’s an intricate situation,” said Porter. “But the revenue they could make from that fight would be crazy. But a lot of things have to come into play for that fight to happen.”
