"Showtime" Shawn Porter is eager to get in the ring with with fellow former world champion Danny "Swift" Garcia.
They will battle for the vacant WBC welterweight world championship on Saturday, September 8 live on SHOWTIME from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
The belt became vacant earlier this year after Keith Thurman voluntarily dropped the belt due to inactivity.
Porter is currently training hard at his camp in Las Vegas.
"I love being in training camp and grinding every day. We're just 100 percent focused on what we have to do. I'm seasoned enough where I know how to excel through these stages of camp. I feel great," Porter said.
"We always work on the jab to start our training session. Everyone knows that everything I do comes off of my jab. It's all about the fundamentals. My dad is smart and knows my athletic potential is there. He's focused on all the technical and strategic parts of the game."
Garcia has promised to go toe to toe with Porter - who expects the Philadelphia fighter to avoid that type of strategy.
He believes Garcia will play the role of a counter-puncher, by sticking and moving.
Porter plans to be very active in every round, with at least 60 punches flying out - and he wants to land close to half of them.
"Danny's counter-punching I think plays into my hands. I'm a combination puncher. There's more than one coming. If there is only one coming, you don't know where it's coming from. I think it's going to take care of Danny's strength, but I don't take it lightly. I know that he's a strong fighter and that's what I expect in the ring," Porter said.
"I don't believe that he's going to stand toe-to-toe with me, but I do believe that's where he thinks he can win the fight. The point is to hit and not get hit, so we'll try to keep it as clean as possible. It gets rough in there sometimes, but if you can't handle the heat, get out of the kitchen.
"Once upon a time I probably would have that thought that I could just beat Danny with activity. But I know that I have to be sharp, precise and land most of my punches. I want to throw 60 a round and land 40 percent."
