It appears one of the big players on the scene is flying under the radar with all the talk of Floyd's next opponent, the Malignaggi win over Judah and the Lara decision over Trout but why is it that there's no talk of Shawn Porter; dude is a Beast forreals.
Right now I can easily see Porter being good enough to beat Bradley, Pacquiao and Provodnikov. Though I know many will disagree with my picks and that's ok, I just see something special in him and that he may end up being avoided by many at WW.
I like the way he manhandled Alexander (sometimes it looked like a man vs a little boy) and I think he can do the same with many who are far slower and not as tough as Devon is.
What are your thoughts on him and who would you like to see him face??

He and Bradley would be good. And him and provo would be interesting
Devon can't handle smart pressure.

Because maybe he's not a beast..he won't beat Bradley, and I think Danny Garcia would lift that belt off if him as well. It's interesting fights out there that I'd like to see him in. I'd like to see him and Thurman. Thurman is the most interesting for him because anybody's whose watched Porter at length knows he struggles when he can't impose his will or bully a fighter. He won't do to Keith what he did to Devon. Let's see if he's arrived for real or was it just a stylistic matchup gon right before we jump the gun. I picked Devon to beat him but he took it to Devon so credit to him. But let's not get ahead of ourselves here. Besides Saturday night, name the beast like performance he's had...end of story
