Jo Jo Dan Hopes Shawn Porter Accepts The Fight

By Mark Vester

Welterweight contender Jo Jo Dan (28-1, 15KOs) is hoping that Shawn Porter (18-0, 13KOs) accepts an NABF ordered fight. Both sides have until June 15 to reach an agreement. A purse bid has been scheduled for July 18th. Dan's agent, Chris Ganescu, tells BoxingScene.com that his fighter is hoping to get Porter in the ring, after failing to secure fights with Joel Julio and Mike Jones. Dan is already going to start training for the possibility of facing Porter.

"Julio and Mike Jones' promoters turned down Jo Jo's challenge. I hope Porter and his team will accept the NABF's decision. Jo Jo will start training now and looks forward to facing PORTER as soon as the two sides make a deal," Ganescu told BoxingScene.com.

Dan Ion is a good fighter. He is way too much for Porter right now. Jo Jo was robbed against Aydin.
