Provodkinov and Algieri Both Turn Down Fights Against Porter


    download (1)Tha Boxing Voice has recently been informed by reliable sources with knowledge to the situation that both Chris Algieri and Ruslan Provodkinov turned down the option to compete against Shawn Porter. The Porter camp has been adamant in returning to the ring as soon as possible, and there were rumors of a Shawn Porter vs. Roberto Garcia match coming into fruition, but it doesn’t appear to be true.

    Currently Porter (24-1-1, 15 KOs) is still left without an opponent to compete against, and hasn’t stepped into the ring since August 16 of 2014. They have made it abundantly clear in the past that they are willing to face any top level opposition in early 2015, and are still awaiting for an opportunity to present itself.
