Video: Shawn Porter Aims For a Big Return in September

Bill "Two Scoops" Emes catches up with former welterweight champion Shawn Porter, who was ringside for Danny Garcia's welterweight debut against Paulie Malignaggi at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

NEW YORK – Danny Garcia and Paulie Malignaggi were both looking to the future – with vastly different visions.

Garcia stopped Malignaggi in the ninth round of their welterweight fight Saturday night at Barclays Center to remain undefeated.

Garcia improved to 31-0 with his 18th knockout. Malignaggi dropped to 33-7.

“Keith Thurman and Shawn Porter are great fighters in this division, and they’re both represented by Al Haymon,” Garcia said. “So, if they want we can make it happen.”

Following the fight, Malignaggi acknowledged he may be close to retirement.

“I’m probably not fighting again,” said Malignaggi, who also works as a television commentator. “My career started in Brooklyn 14 years ago. If it ends in Brooklyn tonight then at least I ended it at home where I’m from and in front of the greatest fans in the world.”

With Malignaggi against the ropes, Garcia threw a flurry of punches before referee Arthur Mercante Jr. stopped it at 2:22 of the ninth.

Garcia and Malignaggi traded shots almost immediately. But Garcia had the better of the exchanges, including opening cuts surrounding Malignaggi’s right eye.

Malignaggi landed his best punch in the seventh, a hard right to the chin that Garcia shook off.

“I was trying to dictate the pace because I didn’t want him to get into a groove,” Malignaggi said. “He’s a hard puncher and I didn’t want to give him confidence to land a big shot. I wanted to dictate with my jab and keep him missing so he’d second guess on throwing his power. The (fewer) power shots he (threw) the (fewer) power shots he could hit me with.

“He was walking me down fairly well behind the jab. He cut me and I think that upped his confidence. I never could get control of the pace.”

The event was showcased by Premier Boxing Champions

Anybody that doesn't like this kid is an a-hole. Porter's seems very humble.
