Thurman vs Porter March 12, on CBS

We will KNOW tonight.

But it looks like March 12, on CBS, you will watch two welterweight elites clash.

One will probably emerge less elite after scrapping in a Connecticut ring, at Mohegan Sun. But they know, true warriors accept and demand the sternest tears, to prove the sturdiness of their spine.

Will Floridian Keith “One Time” Thurman have the edge with a slightly larger skill set? Or will rugged rumbler Shawn Porter of Ohio have an edge as the more physical specimen? Soon, we see…

Check out a solid interview I did with Shawn's dad Kenny on Friday at the weigh in for the card unfurling tonight at Barclays Center. He talks about why his kid doesn't shrink and look for soft touch pay days.

Expect a full look at the March 12 tangle on air tonight, on Showtime.
