On Monday afternoon, inside of the Dream Hotel in Downtown Manhattan, former world champions Danny Garcia and Shawn Porter came face to face ahead of their big Sep. 8 showdown. The Porter vs. Garcia clash will take place from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and will be aired on SHOWTIME, with the vacant WBC welterweight title at stake.

After coming face to face at the presser, and exchanging a few words with one another, the two men appear ready to go, as they will be heading back to their respective training camps for the time being. For Garcia (34-1, 20′s), who is coming off of a ninth round knockout over Brandon Rios in February, he’s eager to get back in the ring and show who’s boss.
