SHAWN PORTER insists the mutual respect and friendship between he and Keith Thurman will not dull their competitive spirit when they meet on June 25 for the latter’s WBA welterweight title.

The pair will clash at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, having progressed alongside eachother in both the amateur and professional codes.

However former IBF champion Porter does not feel their history makes the situation a strange one, and intends to become a two-time world ruler.
