I think its long over due for this thread. Over half of the HBO affeletic hopes have jumped ship to Showtime. Where as Showtime has grown more in love with the black hopes, HBO has settled in on Euro fighters such as Kovalev, Triple G and Wlad. Tonight on Showtime, one of its new black hopes, Shawn Porter, a limited but strong and rugged fighter took on England's rising star in mallutto Kell Brook, who father BTW is White. Porter who is the IBF welterweight champ, last seen given Mallligianni a 4th round beatdown and ko, took on Brook tonight. It was a close fight but Brook got the majority decision as he deserved. He landed the more effective shots, while Porter launched ineffective aggressive and illegal blows to the back of Brook's head throughout the fight. The corrupt or blind ref never warned or obviously deducted a point from him. But as Larry Merchant famously stated, "boxing is the theater of the unexpected". One of the judges was Andailea Byrd, the most racist incompetent judge ever, had Brook winning by 6 points! Before the fight when the judges where announced I said Brook will have to leave Porter on his back cold to win the title. The theater of the expected presented itself tonight on Showtime.
