Former welterweight champion Shawn Porter (26-1-1, 16KOs) is hoping to get a shot at Floyd Mayweather Jr. on September 12th, when the WBC/WBO/WBA champion is scheduled to return. Mayweather has not interest in the match.
If Porter is unable to get Mayweather, he would love to get another former champion, Marcos Maidana (35-5, 31KOs), in the ring.
Maidana also holds a win over Adrien Broner. The dangerous Argentinian has been inactive since losing back to back fights with Mayweather last year. He wants to return at some point before the end of the year.
Both Porter and Maidana are advised by Al Haymon.
"I wanted Maidana as soon the bell rung after he fought Adrien Broner. We'll see what happens. That's another good fight. That's a great fight for me," Porter said.
