Broner vs Porter: Why Can’t We Talk Weight Without Tension?

With the fight between Adrien Broner and Shawn Porter rapidly approaching, the focus continues to be fixed on weight. As with most bouts in this common era of fighting weight has emerged as a point of fact that was formerly par for the course to a negotiating point nearly as important as purse split. This fight is to be fought at 144 pounds. What are we to call this 144-pound match-up? It’s not light welterweight, it’s not welterweight, so maybe we’ll create a new name. Medium Welterweight. I’m sure we could get it sanctioned by a certain body if we really wanted. Whatever you may think of the negotiated weight, both fighters signed on the…
