Puerto Rican super middleweight prospect Roberto Jose Acevedo (3-0, 2 KOs) says his upcoming opponent, Martinez Sharod Porter (1-1) of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, had better be prepared for battle this Friday. Acevedo and Porter will meet in a four-round non-televised preliminary bout on the undercard of the ShoBox: The New Generation broadcast presented by Warriors Boxing, allowed â€œShootout at Texas Stationâ€, scheduled for Friday, May 11, from the Texas Station Gambling Hall & Hotel in Las Vegas.
The night will be caption by Clevelandâ€™s once-beaten Willie â€œThe Greatâ€ Nelson (17-1-1, 11 KOs) stepping in to face Cubaâ€™s Yudel Jhonson (12-0, 8 KOs) in the 10-round junior middleweight main event, plus an eight-round co-featured battle of unbeatable super middleweights Badou Jack â€œThe Ripperâ€ (10-0, 8 KOs) of Sweden and Colombiaâ€™s power-punching Alexander Brand (17-0, 15 KOs).
