Kenny’s primary fighter, his son, former IBF welterweight champion Shawn, is coming off of a rousing performance this past June 25, where he dropped a razor-thin unanimous decision to WBA titlist Keith Thurman.

While it is impossible and unnecessary to ignore the opinions of dedicated Mayweather and Pacquiao fans about the conclusion of their bout, the insightful view of someone with more in-depth boxing experience adds a lot to the substance of the outcome of their fight.

Kenny Porter comes with a respectable amount of knowledge and experience when it comes to the sport of boxing, and in his interview with Hustle Boss’ Chris Robinson he talks about the fight, and what camp Pacquiao should have done afterwards.

Prior to the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao matchup, there was a wide range of predictions regarding the fight labeled as the biggest sporting event in history.

For trainer Kenny Porter, who can’t help but look at Mayweather as a future opponent for his son Shawn (25-1-1, 16 KO’s), the former IBF welterweight champion of the world, he seemed to feel that Mayweather would find a way to secure his 48th victory.

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).

It’s certainly a clash that is intriguing on many fronts, from the aggressive nature of both fighters to how much of a mark each man is dying to make following their lone defeats in 2014.
