Will the PBC deliver Adrien Broner-Shawn Porter on June 20?
File this under juicy rumorsÔÇª
A welterweight showdown, in Las Vegas, pitting Adrien Broner, the flashy-fisted Cincy-based boxer who owns a Mayweather-sized mouth and seeks to restart his career momentum so that he’s in the mix for mega-fights in the near future, will likely take on another Ohian, “Showtime” Shawn Porter, a source tells RingTV.com.
Fan reaction to that scrap, which would unfold on June 20, and I was told is almost official, has been a hearty thumbs up, judging by Twitter banter.
Both men are coming off wins on the Premier Boxing Champions series, with Broner having his way with rugged John Molina, and Porter handling late-sub Erick Bone.
This might well be the most anticipated scrap put together by the PBC matchmaking crewÔÇöhey, who are they anyway?ÔÇöand the winner, with a certain sort of showing, could conceivably be in the mix for a Mayweather lottery ticket.
