A Card Featuring Thurman-Porter, Broner-Allahkverdiev In the Works?

Thurman-Porter

That rumor mill, they are working over-time over there right now.

My guys Mr X–wait, maybe it's Mrs. X (*winks*) tells me he thinks Oct. 3 will be a doozy, and we will get Keith Thurman versus Shawn Porter in a young gun welterweight eliminator, with the winner in a position, with an A grade outing, to pester Floyd for a shot at next; also, on the same card, which would likely unfold in Vegas, we'd see Adrien Broner seeking to restore some luster against busy banger Khabib Allahkverdiev. (Boxrec says that one is a lock, site TBD, but Boxrec is a work in progress, as we all know.)

X thinks that's the crack but another smart source, with more of an eye toward what makes in a bigger picture, thinks we could yes, see Thurman versus Porter, but at the end of October. On NBC, after the Breeder's Cup runs, Saturday, Oct. 31st, would make for a no-brainer mashup, this smartie said.

We've heard PBC will be ramping up with a more prime vs. prime scraps…good news for the discriminating fight fan, that would be..

Makes sense to me, gang…What say youse…About these matchups, and proper placement on platform…play pundit, and programmer while you're at it!

Both Porter and Broner will win. So get ready to holla at the rematch between Porter and Broner. Porter will be too busy for Thurman. And Broner will likely stop the rusty Allahkverdiev. Holla!

Also heard Garcia Vs Guerrero is in the works
Thurman vs Porter is a very good matchup. Broner's opponent has been out of the ring for over a year and was about to quit boxing after losing his last fight. Haymon is desperate to get Broner any type of Belt. Two guys coming off a lose fighting for a belt is what is wrong with boxing. Garcia needs to step it up. With his bs catchweights all these years. He was fed Salka in the mismatch of the decade. He lost yo Herrera in a fuggazy homecoming. Haymon payed Paulie to come out of retirement so Garcia could get a knockout , and now shot Guerrero is getting a chance to throw in the towel against Garcia. Guerrero is shot. He "lost" his last fight to a guy with a 19-3 record with only 4 knockouts or something, he won a split decision in the record books ,but he was Clipped and knocked down in the 4th,by a guy with no power and 4 knockouts. YouTube the fight and watch Guerrero go out on his feet.Thurman also smashed Guerrero and the Asian boxer had his moments pummeling Guerrero. Garcia should be ashamed if he takes the fight. Philly champions are rolling over in their graves. No wonder why Garcia can't sell tickets in Philly. Angel Garcia vs Daddy Guerrero in the parking lot is a better fight. I wish I had 3 hands so that I can giver that fight 3 thumbs down.

I like Thurman-Porter and also Broner-Allakherdiev. I think Allakhverdiev pulls the upset as long as the judging is fair. I agree deep, Garcia-Guerrero is a bad fight. Guerrero is done. Aron Martinez won that fight against him and Martinez though solid is around the club level type fighter. And he has no pop and had Guerrero down and badly hurt in that fight. This is Haymon cashing out Guerrero to further build Garcia. But its an easy fight and win for Garcia.

Thurman V Porter is a good fight. Garcia should fight the winner or some other really credible welterweight. I'm not too bothered about Garcia V Guerrero, but; 1) Garcia better really step it up after that fight; a real non-Haymon stable matchup is desperately needed. 2) Garcia better really show us something against Guerrero whom - whilst past his use by date - is still a pretty tough, experienced, and awkward lefty. :) :)
