De La Hoya Warns: Don't Blink on Porter vs. Brook

By Edward Chaykovsky

Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya is predicting a fast and furious fight in Saturday's main event between IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter (24-0-1, 15KOs) and mandatory challenger Kell Brook (32-0, 22KOs). Both fighters have promised fireworks and both are looking to win by knockout.

"The main event is definitely one of those fights where you don't want to blink. I know both these fighters have the hunger and desire to put on just an amazing fight. Shawn Porter comes from Cleveland, Ohio, a place that grooms champions, like LeBron James. He's a real throwback fighter who works hard and will fight anybody. Kell Brook is a true champion who is hungry and determined," De La Hoya said.

The fight takes place at the StubHub Center in Carson, California - which De La Hoya says is the perfect venue for this fight.

"StubHub Center is known for putting on some amazing fights. I like to call it the 'Thuderdome'. You know, the old movie with Mel Gibson and Tina Turner where they just go to fight. Every single fight we've staged at StubHub has been incredible," De La Hoya said.
