Hot, undefeated prospect Showtime Shawn Porter has gained more notoriety while sparring with pound for pound king Manny Pacquiao in Philippines in 2009 than through all of his seventeen pro fights combined. Freddie Roach picked Porter then because of his tremendous left hook that would help Manny prepare for the fight with Miguel Cotto. Roach praised Shawn by saying that he is a very strong fighter with a left hook sharper than Cotto’s and predicted that this young prospect will be a champion some day.

Reports that Shawn gave Pacquiao a run for his money in sparring did not go to his head. Instead he decided that if he wanted to get better he needed to move to Southern California to get better spar mates.
