Shawn Porter the IBF weltweight champion has a huge fight coming up in days, against England's hard hitting undefeated welterweight Kell Brook, but seems to be speaking more about a bout with Keith 'One Time' Thurman. When asked about a future bout against the other undefeated welterweight and his eyes light up and he states "I would fight 'One Time' two times." Like this was a practiced montage, when many are favoring Brook overseas. American boxing fans have very little idea as to who Kell Brook is, so like vintage Americans they don't care.
Thurman is an American and so is Porter, and team Porter want to work the judges to give them the nod, if the fight is close by dangling a possible fight against Thurman if he is to win. Always saying that "That's the fight the fans want to see, and Brook isn't that known here in the United States." Porter said in his interview. Brook just laughs because he believes that team Porter fears him, and is worried."They waited until the last mins to sign the contract to fight, they did everything in their power to try to get out of it. This isn't a fight they want, they have to fight me." Brook said on IFL interview. If Porter wants Thurman he will have to earn it, the hard way by beating his toughest challenge to date.
