Shawn porter wasted very little time getting to his gameplan, from the opennng bell he made it clear to Devon Alexander that he was there to take the championship from him, by force. Landing hard left shots that woubled Devon for a moment, but he never gave Devon a time to think, and turn him. Porter followed the Timothy Bradley blueprint to the letter as he through punches and headbutts all night cutting Devon early in the fight.
The middle rounds belonged to Devon as he placed his shots well, got himself comfortable a bit, and had some success. but Porter kept the pressue attack going all night long which led to an impressive victory and gave him his first world title. Congratulations to the new IBF Welterweight champion Shawn Porter.
