NBC “Premier Boxing Championship” series will be in full swing this summer and we already have couple of exciting fights to look forward to in NBC this June. Adrien Broner will take on Shawn Porto on 20th June 2015 in Mgm Grand, Las Vegas which will be a quality fight at catchweight of 144. Broner has been recovering from his devastating loss against Marcos Maidana couple of years ago and since than he has been going though tune up fights. But credit must be given to Broner for taking another fight against pressure boxer like Shawn Porto and many experts did not expect him to take on someone like Porter after his defeat to Maidana.
Shawn Porter on the other hand lost his IBF walterweight crown against British Kell Brook and he will be keen to get back on track. Reading some of the comments after the fight was announced seems to me many people are predicting another Maidana like smashing for Broner but since its a catchweight and favours Broner a bit more it will be much more event contest in my eyes.
