FORMER two-time world welterweight titlist Shawn Porter (30-3-1, 17 KOs) dropped a split decision decision to Errol Spence in September and lost his WBC title in the process. The announcement that Danny Garcia is next in line for Spence means that the 32-year-old will not be getting a rematch anytime soon and he has to work out his next move.

“I wasn’t expecting Danny to get in the ring (after the fight),” said Porter when speaking to FS1’s Inside PBC Boxing “I know that’s how the promotion goes. You always got to say what’s next. I understand.”

Porter, though, had a word of warning for Spence following his recent car crash; he believes that his former foe should make sure he takes as much time as possible to ensure that he is in fine physical and mettle fettle for Garcia.
