*Ray Greenhalge. When Ray Greenhalge was born seven weeks prematurely, doctors said he would never walk or talk as a result of the debilitating muscle disorder cerebral palsy, as well as severe fluid on the brain. Now, 26 years later, he’s probably more talkative and physically active than most his age – an age many feared he wouldn’t reach. The nephew and godson of retired boxer Micky Ward, best known for his historic trilogy of fights with Arturo Gatti in 2002 and 2003, Greenhalge has a unique passion for boxing, which gives him a sense of direction. He also proves to be every bit as tough as his uncle, with whom he spars ten rounds every Saturday, as well as engaging in two- to three-hour daily gym workouts. REAL SPORTS correspondent Bernard Goldberg travels to Massachusetts to hear Greenhalge’s inspirational story.

Producer: Michael Tolajian.

The bout sees both men at a cross roads in their career and in need of a win. Berto fought just once in 2016, defeating rival Victor Ortiz in a rematch, however he is best remembered for his September of 2015 loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr that saw him lose a unanimous decision. Porter is fresher on everyone’s mind as his last fight was his memorable June of 2016 tangle with Keith Thurman that saw him come out on the short end of three judges cards that had it 115-113. Porter finds himself in need of a win to avoid a two figt slide in a crowded 147 pound welterweight class.   Shawn Porter Talks To TBC Porter hosted a workout for the media last week at his?Porter Hy-Performance Center at 2206 Paradise Rd. in Las Vegas, NV 89104. Porter is always smiling, but beneath that smile is a man who is driven by the thought of regaining a world title. Check out what Porter had to say right here at TBC.
