Unbeaten Porter defends title against Malignaggi


WASHINGTON: Undefeated Shawn Porter puts his International Boxing Federation world welterweight title on the line against former world champion Paulie Malignaggi in an all-American showdown on Saturday (Sunday in Manila). It is on the undercard in Washington of the unification bout between light heavyweight champions Bernard Hopkins and Beibut Shumenov, as is unbeaten Peter Quillin’s World Boxing Organization title defense against Czech Lukas Konecny. Malignaggi, 33, fighting outside his hometown of Brooklyn for the first time in two years, is confident of reclaiming a world crown and dumping Porter, 26, from the ranks of the unbeaten.
