Schaefer: I’d Love to See Mayweather vs. Shawn Porter

The question was posed to Richard Schaefer of Golden Boy Promotions after Shawn Porter’s drubbing of Paulie Malignaggi — what about a bout down the line between Porter and Floyd Mayweather?

“We’ll discuss it with Al [Haymon, the boxing adviser who has Mayweather and Porter in his huge stable of clients] and with Team Porter, and why not?” Schaefer responded. “Me as a fan, after what we’ve seen that he’s [Porter’s] done with Devon [Alexander], who is an outstanding boxer, and what he’s done with Paulie, who’s an outstanding boxer, and Floyd is the best boxer, from a boxing point-of-view. So I’d love to see the match-up with somebody as young and as aggressive and as relentless as Shawn. Relentless is the word. And who goes for it when he sees he has somebody in trouble. I as a fan would love to see that fight.”

Of course, Mayweather has his May 3 bout with Marcos Maidana first. And Porter’s next bout could be a defense of his title against mandatory challenger Kell Brook.

[QUOTE=Trudoe]Green sent! This is exactly what i think and have stated previously. Porter and his father are very intelligent and i feel it's their strong point. They prepare well for styles. Porter will be a hard fighter to defeat with his style but especially because of his intelligence. L...

[QUOTE=H.B.Viper]So far out of all the post(s) that were written, and debated, you were the only one who sees a pattern with what "Team Porter" is trying to achieve. The more slick fighters he fights, the more battle tested he will be for FMJ, and all his antics.... the rest of the group( Jr. ...
