  1. Shawn Porter: excitement. Speed, range, power, fearlessness.

    Even so I’m slightly dismayed to hear Golden Boy talking up a Porter-Mayweather bout. Not enough experience; too much upside in Porter to see it tempered now by a loss to the P4P #1. At this respective stage in his career, Mayweather was still taking scalps from the likes of Gregorio Vargas and Emmanuel Augustus (who he’d credit as the toughest he’d faced), though to be sure Corrales and Castillo were on the horizon.

    • It’s just Schaefer planting the seeds for the future.

      I don’t see that fight happening for a long time yet. Porter doesn’t have the profile or fan base yet to get such an opportunity. He could be a fun challenger in 18 months time
