This Saturday night, Live on Premier Boxing Champions,  Keith “One Time” Thurman (26-0, 22 KO’s) puts his WBA Welterweight title on the line in the much anticipated showdown against “Showtime” Shawn Porter (26-1-1, 16 KO’s).  The fight will air at 9PM ET and will take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York.  The co-featured fight was supposed to be a featherweight bout between Jesus Cuellar (28-1, 21 KO’s) VS Abner Mares (29-2-1, 15 KO’s), in what could have been a fight of the year candidate, but sadly it was cancelled.  Here is the breakdown and predictions:
