Two-time world champion Shawn Porter has secured some significant news in recent days.
The WBO have ordered that pound for pound, stand out fighter from Omaha, Nebraska, Terence Crawford will face Porter next.
One that could open the door to some very, very big things in the new year, too.
Porter has reacted to the news on his podcast with the following:
Another tremendous match up in the welterweight division to look forward to.
The electric 147lbs. weight class is crackling with energy and coming to life all the time as time goes on.
The best is yet to come.
