Broner Wants Another Shot at Porter - Porter Wants His Shot at Money

Floyd Mayweather wants Broner vs Porter 2 on his September card. He also wants Keith Thurman to take on Errol Spence on it too. Broner went to Twitter and Instagram saying the fight was on. According to Ken Porter there is not going to be a rematch. Shawn Porter just beat Adrien Broner and Team Porter wants Floyd Mayweather. Marcos Maidana beat Broner and got his shot. Beating Broner isn't an automatic bid for Mayweather, but I think Porter has done enough for a shot.

It appears that Floyd will be fighting either Andre Berto or Karim Mayfield in the main event. Floyd has two guys in Thurman and Porter that want to fight him. Yet he wants them to fight on his September card. The card would be a great one, but the best card would be him fighting Thurman or Porter in the main event. Both men have earned a shot and so has undefeated Kell Brook, but that fight is not going to happen. 

There is no doubt that Floyd will get it his way, or so close it will be considered his way. He has won every fight he's been in and has punched his own ticket. He can fight whoever he wants, and if it's a loaded card and people buy it he can brag about how he sold a fight against Andre Berto or Karim Mayfield. History won't necessarily point out that the viewers wanted to see the under card fights. Mayweather fights, who he wants, when he wants, and how he wants. 

I know Floyd fans will be happy with whoever he fights. Boxing fans in general want more. The people who've paid for his fights deserve to see him fight someone who can at least challenge him. I truly believe that both Shawn Porter and Keith Thurman could both give him a fight that fans could appreciate. There is no reason to fight the two irrelevant fighters that Floyd has his sights on. He needs to fulfill the Showtime contract with a bang.
