Shawn Porter: ‘Not only do I have to win. I have to be exciting as well’

In his own words, Shawn Porter looks ahead to the Roberto Garcia fight on Friday March 13

WE train so that every fight I look great, I look sharp, I’m in shape and I’m prepared for whatever is in front of me. So, this fight against Roberto Garcia is just like any other fight. I have to come in there. Not only do I have to win but I have to be exciting as well.

Again, I’m going to treat this just like every other fight. Every fight is a must-win because we are winners. We want to win.  Simple as that. I don’t look at Roberto Garcia like he’s any less of any other opponent I’ve already faced. I look at him just the same, like he’s coming in here to take something from me and I have to defend it.

He’s a brawler. He’s a tough fighter. He’s a hard-nosed competitor. We know that and we’re prepared for that. So, we can bang, but we can also box.
