On April 22, 2017, Shawn Porter and Andre Berto will be heading into the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York in what should be dubbed a must-win fight for each competitor. The loser of this fight will be relegated to gatekeeper duties; while the winner could very well find themselves back in the welterweight championship picture.
This fight will definitely be a good fight as I expect both fighters to leave it all in the ring on Saturday night. Shawn Porter is one of the roughest fighters in Boxing. Andre Berto, on the other hand, possess the “Uppercut from Hell!” If Andre Berto wants to win this fight, he should try to take a page out of ‘Special K’ Kell Brook’s boxing playbook and use his jab to stop the ultra-aggressive Porter.
Shawn Porter, on the other hand, should use his unbelievable pressure to try and overwhelm Berto as Berto has shown in the past that pressure can bother him at times in fights. Who wants it more? That is what this fight boils down to.
Berto will box, and Porter will press. In the end, however, I feel that Berto will feel the heat from Porter.
Prediction: Shawn ‘Showtime’ Porter by Unanimous Decision
