FORMER welterweight champion Shawn Porter claims he is attempting to make a fight with another former titleholder, Andre Berto, for some time in 2017.

Porter hasn’t fought since his electric meeting with Keith Thurman in June 2016, which saw him drop a unanimous decision in his only outing of last year.

Berto is coming off an explosive stoppage win over Victor Ortiz, which came two months prior to Porter’s clash with Thurman. In 2015 he was routed over 12 rounds in Floyd Mayweather’s final fight.
