CARSON, Calif. - Unbeaten IBF Welterweight World Champion Shawn "Showtime" Porter, undefeated contender Kell Brook and seven other boxers who will compete on this Saturday's stacked Golden Boy Promotions' fight card at StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., participated in an open media workout Wednesday at Fabela Chavez Boxing Center in Carson, Calif..
The exciting, offensive-minded Porter (24-0-1, 15 KOs), of Cleveland, Ohio, will defend his 147-pound crown against British banger Brook (32-0, 22 KOs), of Sheffield, England in what figures to be an explosive main event of a world championship tripleheader live on SHOWTIME® (9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT).
"Training camp was great; we had some of the camp in Las Vegas and some in the Bay Area. We are ready to rock and roll. I just continue to work hard and sharpen the skills that I already possess," Porter said.
"I am going into the fight looking for that knockout. I told myself that going four rounds or less would be a beautiful night for me. But at the same time I am prepared for a 12-round fight and being a boxer I know that you must be prepared for anything.
"I am very humble, but everyone knows that when I get into that ring it's my time to shine. I will be showing off for the fans, my team, and for my future opponents.
