Shawn Porter scored a TKO of Andre Berto in the main event of Saturday’s Showtime boxing card. Porter dominated the fight with extreme pressure, not letting Berto work his game and ultimately scoring multiple knockdowns en route to a TKO in the ninth round.
The fight was billed as a 12-round WBC welterweight title eliminator, and Porter will have his rematch with Keith Thurman after his impressive win over Berto.
Early in the fight, Berto looked good, landing from range and generally keeping a hesitant Porter from working his game. But then Porter turned up the aggression and started bullying Berto big time into the ropes. Porter began overwhelming Berto, getting him into the ropes and working strong uppercuts and big body shots.
Both fighters ended up with cuts over their eyes after a couple rounds, and by the seventh round both fighters were getting looked at by the doctors extensively. Berto was landing some strong shots, but Porto consistently worked him into a dirty boxing fight that he was better-equipped to win.
In the co-feature, Jermell Charlo defended his WBC junior middleweight title against Charles Hatley in a 12-round fight. But they did not go all 12 rounds, with Charlo clearly dominating the first five rounds on the back of an impressive jab clinic.
Charlo consistently landed hard right straights setup by quick left jabs, and scored a knockout of Hatley in the third round. He had a near knockdown in the second round when Hatley stumbled back into the ropes.
In the sixth round, both fighters elected to swing for the fences and it ended as many would expect, with Charlo slipping punches in the pocket and landing a massive right hand to put Hatley down. It was a clean knockout, the 14th of Charlo’s career and the 29th win in his 29th match. Hatley drops to 26-2-1 for his career.
