Andre “The Beast” Berto (31-4, 24 KOs) and “Showtime” Shawn Porter (26-2, 16 KOs) clash in a welterweight world title eliminator this Saturday, April 22, live on Showtime. The two former world champions are facing off for the mandatory WBC title shot at champion Keith Thurman. Both fighters have exceptional amateur pedigrees, incredible heart, and neither of them wants to lose another fight. It promises to be a fantastic bout, as well as a fascinating face-off between two of the best trainers in the sport (Virgil Hunter and Kenny Porter).
Kicking off the broadcast on Showtime (9:30pm ET/6:30pm PT), WBC Jermell “Iron Man” Charlo (28-0, 13 KOs) takes on top challenger Charles “The Future” Hatley (26-1, 18 KOs). Afterward, at 7:30pm ET/PT, four-time world champion Amanda “The Real Deal” Serrano (31-1, 23 KOs) faces former champion Dahiana Santana (35-8, 14 KOs) over on Showtime Extreme for the vacant WBO bantamweight world title. If Serrano can overcome Santana, she will set a record for Puerto Rican boxing by winning five world titles in five weight divisions.
