If there was ever a duo that was sure to get me some positive reaction to the June 20 Adrien Broner vs. Shawn Porter matchup and aftermath, upcoming talents Zach Cooper and J’Leon Love fit the bill.

Porter pulled off perhaps the biggest victory over his career thus far when he handled Broner over the course of 12 rounds. Porter was aggressive and calculated throughout the match and outside of a big knockdown he suffered in the 12th and final round, the Akron native was in control.

I will never accuse Kenny Porter of holding back his thoughts.

Still basking in the aftermath of his son Shawn’s big victory over Adrien Broner this past weekend, we caught up with the outspoken coach during the BKB weigh-ins at the Mandalay Bay on Friday afternoon.

During any big fight, there are always all kinds of subplots and such was the case with Shawn Porter’s big victory over Adrien Broner this past weekend inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Following the match, Floyd Mayweather, a man Broner looks to as a mentor, suggested the fighter should have probably rested following his weigh in for Porter, as he instead was inside of the famed Mayweather Boxing Club checking out some sparring on the eve of his 32nd professional boxing match.

While inside of City Athletic Boxing in Las Vegas earlier today, I crossed paths with Tommy Smalls, a man known best to some in boxing circles for his connection to the Mayweather Boxing Club a few years back.

Smalls is now working closely with top flight amateur prospect Devin Haney, who was also in the building finishing up a workout ahead of what he hopes to soon be a professional debut.

Shawn Porter was Shawn Porter on Saturday night.

Inside of the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., the 27-year old came away with a big victory over Adrien Broner after 12 rough and awkward rounds. Porter simply showed himself to be too determined, conditioned, and poised throughout the match, capturing the verdict on all three scorecards by tallies of 118-108, 115-111, and 114-112.

On Saturday night, June 20, welterweight star Errol Spence continued to stamp himself as one of the division’s emerging contenders with a one-sided 3rd round TKO over Phil Lo Greco inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Now 17-0 with 14 knockouts as his career continues to push forward, Spence is on the verge of a big fight anytime now as was actually in line for his biggest test to date against Roberto Garcia before the Weslaco, Tex. native withdrew just days prior to the match due to personal reasons.

On Saturday, June 20, former welterweight titlist Shawn Porter (26-1-1, 16 KO’s) produced another strong performance in handling Adrien Broner (30-2, 22 KO’s) over 12 rounds for a unanimous decision victory.

Porter’s sheer will and tenacity appeared to give Broner a lot to think about and Shawn proved himself to be the busier and more focused fighter in the ring. Scores of 118-108, 115-111, and 114-112 were all read in the Akron native’s favor, as he produces his second straight victory following his lone defeat to Kell Brook this past August.

It was about two years ago now that trainer Robert Garcia received word that one of his star fighters, Argentina’s Marcos Maidana, would be a big underdog heading into a matchup with three-division world champion Adrien Broner in San Antonio, Tex.

Maidana would end up having a great camp down in Oxnard, Calif., for that match, ultimately scoring a big upset that led to a pair of fights with Floyd Mayweather. As for Broner, he has since bounced back with 3 decision victories over Carlos Molina, Emmanuel Taylor, and John Molina Jr.

For Broner, it was yet another chance to sound off on Team Porter, as he continues  to imply that father and trainer Kenny is the one running the show, even hinting that the star fighter’s father is keeping money from his son.
