  Porter Smothers & Stops Berto In 9  
Shawn Porter (27-2-1, 17 KO's) stopped Andre Berto (31-5, 24 KO's) in the 9th round of their WBC welterweight elimination bout. The fight had some action, but was also filled with many headbutts and sloppy technique. Porter would score the first known in the 2nd round with a right to the head of Berto. Throughout the fight, Porter would smother Berto, and himself, causing many of his own punches to miss and their heads to clash often. In round 4 both fighters would suffer cuts on the corners of their eyes, Porter with both eyes streaming blood. In round 9, after another headbutt from Porter, Berto would stagger into the ropes. The referee did not pause the action, but asked the fighters to continue. Porter followed up with a left to the head that again staggered Berto into the ropes which was ruled the second knockdown. Porter unloaded another attack as Berto staggered into the corner and was waved off at 1:31 into the round. With the win Porter sets up a possible rematch with Welterweight Champion Keith Thurman.

On the undercard, WBC Super Welterweight Champion Jermell Charlo (29-1, 14 KO's) scored a one-punch KO over Charles Hatley (26-2-1, 18 KO's) in the 6th. Charlo was in control the entire night, landing his long jab and right hand most of the night, scoring a knockdown in the 3rd with the same combo. In the 6th, the same right hand put Hatley out cold with no count necessary :32 into the round.
