Porter: I Don't Agree With Decision, Want Rematch

By Rick Reeno

Shawn Porter (24-1-1, 15KOs) did not agree with scorecards on Saturday night. Porter was on the losing end of twelve round majority decision to mandatory British challenger Kell Brook (33-0, 22KOs), who picked up Porter's IBF welterweight title with the win.

The fight, which took place at the StubHb Center in Carson, California - saw scores of 114-114, 117-111 and 116-112. Ironically, the British judge was the one who scored the fight as a draw.

Porter felt Brook was doing too much holding. He demands to have a rematch, but likely won't receive it. Because it was a mandatory fight, Brook is under no obligation to give him a return fight - unless Porter works his way back up in the ranks and the IBF orders the fight.

"I'm going back to the drawing board and continue training. I'm not giving any excuses. I do want a rematch and if I have to go find him, I will. He was holding for more than half the rounds. I don't agree with the decision," Porter said.

I like aggressive power punching, and I scored it like 8-4 for Brook. It was sad to see a fighter smother his own work as much as Porter did. Some of that credit can go to Brook, the rest of…

It was a close fight, but Brook won clearly IMO. What I don't understand, and what I think is the difference, is how people can think that Porter easily won the first few rounds. From what I saw, Brook clearly…
