The purse bid is no longer necessary, as the International Boxing Federation reveals that a deal was reached for Shawn Porter (24-0-1, 15 KOs) to defend his IBF welterweight title against mandatory challenger Kell Brook (34-0, 22 KOs). The sanctioning body was told the fight would take place on August 9th in New York.

Porter is riding a hot streak, with an upset win over Devon Alexander to capture the title last year and then a one-sided four round destruction of former champion Paulie Malignaggi. Brook is undefeated and regarded as a dangerous fighter, but Porter represents a big step up in class when compared to his past opponents.

Is it possible we're overrating Porter now? Alexander possibly could have overlooked him, Paulie is pretty much one the downside of his career and has nothing to hold Porter off him.

[QUOTE=AddiX]How? Does porter even have a promoter? You can just make fights with no promoter now?[/QUOTE]Good question but was it asked not really knowing or just to spark commotion about GBP Snake n Whoweather departure? IMO a champ should be able to fight anybody he wants or is mandatory to...
