Tune in to Showtime this Saturday to check out Shawn Porter vs. Andre Berto – full fight details here.

This Saturday night, April 22, Showtime presents their latest edition of Showtime Championship Boxing. Headlining will be a Welterweight battle pitting Andre Berto (31-4; 24 KO) against Shawn Porter (26-2; 16 KO).

It’s hard to believe, but Andre Berto is only 33 years old, just 4 years past Porter. Yet this feels like a clash between the old, fading lion and the new blood. Berto has been around the fight game for a long time, and comes in here off a very expected loss to Floyd Mayweather, then a dramatic KO of Victor Ortiz. Porter was undefeated and red hot a few years ago, but is 2-2 in his last 4 and comes in off the loss to Keith Thurman. He should win this pretty handily, but Berto is just a weird fighter in terms of consistency, so he should make it a fun match-up.

Also on the broadcast is Jermell Charlo vs. Charles Hatley in a WBC 154 pound Super Welterweight title fight. Charlo won the vacant title by defeating John Jackson last May; Hatley has not competed since defeating Anthony Mundine in November 2015, so of course he’s the WBC’s #1 contender.

Join us live this Saturday night April 22 for live fight night coverage of Showtime Championship Boxing Berto vs. Porter live on Showtime.
