APRIL 22nd, BARCLAYS CENTER, BROOKLYN, NY
A slow starting opening stanza, followed by Shawn Porter knocking down Andre Berto in the next. Those two points alone stood apart from the remaining bulk bit of 21 minutes. A blitzkrieg to make ze Germans blush caught Mr. Berto completely on what appeared to be finished legs. This is to take nothing from Mr. Porter, whom now lines up a rematch against his good pal, Keith Thurman. This match saw a quite vintage and top-shelf Porter non-stop aggression and accumulative power of punches in bunches. Also, head butts, which led to a busy night to be a cut-man -- with Porter springing a leak first just prior to the first Berto knockdown. For the record, Berto didn't look hurt at that second-round point, but one could easily feel the momentum foreverly shift away from the ring veteran.

A jab thrown like a dead man votes Democrat, early and often, was the catalyst of Porter's success. Too, he pivoted quite nicely in coming in on Berto. Another note to the fisticuffs -- perhaps fisticuffs somewhat aside -- is each combatant was looked at closely by the ring physician in the seventh, so severe were the cuts via butts. The end came finally in the ninth at its 1:31 mark after that round started with another Berto knock-down off a bum-rushing Porter looking to nip at the bud the previous round best-of-fight performance by Berto. A second knock-down off a big right hand at time of stoppage was all she wrote, whomever she is.

Porter apologized to Berto in the post-fight interview, for them head-butts. All seemed accepted. For whatever reason, Berto came away with the larger of two purses, a nifty way to take the sting outta a very tough evening.
