Former IBF world welterweight champion; Shawn ‘Showtime’ Porter (27-2-1) has been very vocal in his opinions concerning the former 2-weight world champion Danny Garcia (33-1) ahead of his showdown with Adrian Granados this upcoming weekend on the undercard of the Wilder vs Stiverne heavyweight championship rematch. Porter had become increasingly vocal in recent months as he attempted to goad Garcia into a lucrative clash, an attempt which ultimately proved fruitless.
Porter touched on the skullduggery on Garcia’s part, declaring explicitly Garcia is attempting to bamboozle boxing fans into believing he actually wanted the fight after he made no attempt to reach a deal when Porter looked to originally make the fight. “The week after we signed to fight Granados, Garcia comes out and says,’ I’ll fight Shawn Porter, that would be a great fight. I’ll knock him out, he’s tailor made for me.’ I just thought to myself, ‘This dude is full of sh*t’ because every phone call that could’ve possibly been made, was made to take this fight to be the main event here on this card in Brooklyn and he wanted absolutely nothing to do with it” Porter said.
