The Barclays Center gets an additional boost in action as former welterweight champion Shawn “Showtime” Porter gets back in the ring to face Adrian Granados. This will be part of the undercard of the Deontay Wilder-Luis Ortiz bout at the Barclays Center.

Porter who was the former IBF welterweight champion comes into this bout with a record of 27-2-1, with his losses being by decision against Kell Brook and Keith Thurman. His last encounter was in the Barclays Center against Andre Berto where he was able to score a TKO win. Adrian Granados is a tough fighter with a record of 18-5-2 and had his last bout at super lightweight against Adrien Broner where he lost by decision in a fight that some thought that he won. His recent claim to fame was scoring a knockout win over then-undefeated prospect Amir Imam.

This fight will be for the vacant WBC silver welterweight title and the winner would be one step closer to fighting the unified champion Keith Thurman.
