Last night, inside of the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center, Roy Jones Jr. Promotions returned with another installment of their “Fight Night at the D” series, which saw former junior featherweight champion Rico Ramos defeat upset-minded Erik Ruiz over ten rounds.

While the card was taking place, former IBF welterweight champion “Showtime” Shawn Porter could be found in attendance. Always one to host interviews with the press, Porter spoke backstage with Hustle Boss and other outlets on the latest news regarding his career.

On Friday, Jan. 27, former IBF welterweight champion “Showtime” Shawn Porter announced to the press inside of the MGM Grand that he will be facing off with former WBC champion Andre Berto sometime in April.

Porter (26-2-1, 16 KO’s) last saw action inside of the ring this past June, as he dropped a razor-thin unanimous decision to WBA champion Keith Thurman over 12 rounds. In his last appearance, Berto (31-4, 24 KO’s) won in emphatic fashion, as he rose from a second-round knockdown to stop his rival Victor Ortiz via knockout in the fourth round.

On May 6, Mexican superstars Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. will return to the ring against each other at a location to be determined.

The two men are meeting at a catch weight of 164.5 pounds, with Alvarez rising from the junior middleweight class, where he holds the WBO title, and Chavez coming down in weight. Alvarez (48-1-1, 34 KO’s) is expected to be the clear favorite over Chavez (50-2-1, 32 KO’s), who last fought under 167 pounds in Sept. of 2012 when he lost a unanimous decision to then-champion Sergio Martinez.

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

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.

Hustle Boss was on hand inside of the MGM Grand Garden Arena’s Media Tent as former world champions Adrien Broner (30-1, 22 KO’s) and Shawn Porter (25-1-1, 16 KO’s) held their final press conference.

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.

Broner (30-1, 22 KO’s), the three-division champion from Cincinatti, Oh., has been anything but shy leading up to the match and continued to take parting shots at Shawn Porter as well as his father Kenny at the final presser.

Yesterday afternoon, Twitter caught a mild fire when it was reported that a welterweight clash between former champions Shawn Porter and Adrien Broner may be in the works.

The two men know each other very well from their amateur days in Ohio and it seems to be a great clash of styles given Porter’s calculated aggression and Broner’s overall skill set and pedigree.
