Shawn Porter Says He Has Several Styles in The Tank

Shawn Porter has warned Kell Brook he can beat him any way he wants.

The IBF welterweight world champion defends his crown in Carson, California this weekend, live on Sky Sports 1 in the early hours of Sunday.

The undefeated 'Bronze Bomber' has a reputation for being aggressive, come-forward fighter with a big punch that saw him beat both Devon Alexander and Paulie Malignaggi in his last two fights.

And with Brook next in line, Porter says there is even more to come.

"At the end of the day I have a couple more styles than maybe you've even seem," he told Sky Sports.

"It just depends on which style I choose and which one is working at the time. I'll definitely be aggressive - but I'll be fast too and I'll box him on the outside and the inside."

Porter says he and his team and family were not surprised to see him take the title away from Alexander last July.

He is happy handling being a champion and even though he is convinced he will be too good for Brook, he will not be taking it easy.

"I respect him as a person, a man and an athlete and also respect him as a fighter. He has good skills and it would be remiss of me if I didn't respect him. It wouldn't be clever of me," he added.

"I've no predictions at all. I feel confident that I am going to win and after August 16th I am going to - and still - be the champion."
