Shawn Porter in Very Tough Camp Roberto Garcia Clash

By Ryan Burton

On March 13th former welterweight champion Shawn Porter (24-1-1, 15KOs) will face Roberto Garcia (36-3, 23KOs) on Spike TV's inaugural boxing card. Andre Berto will face Josesito Lopez in the main event.

Porter is currently in the middle of his training camp and is looking to put on a great show in Ontario, California. The fight is part of Al Haymon's new "Premier Boxing Champions" series that airs on both NBC and Spike TV.

BoxingScene.com had a brief conversation with Porter's father and trainer Kenny to get an update on Shawn's camp.

"Shawn has been working really hard. We had the Spike TV crews here and they got to see Shawn in action," Porter revealed. "One of the days they were here he sparred 10 rounds and then within an hour to go home and change he biked 4 miles, then ran a total of 5 miles and then rode his bike back the 4 miles home."

This is a great fight for Porter to bounce back on. Would live to see Porter blow this guy up then fight Tim Bradley, which would make for a real war.
