Over the last few years in the boxing world there has been a growing spotlight on the smaller divisions. A great part of that has to do with Forbes‘ highest paid professional athlete Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. Other boxers have also been able make pretty big names for themselves like; Adrien Broner, and Timothy Bradley. You can now add another name to that group, Shawn Porter.
