 THURMAN, PORTER ADDRESS TALK OF REMATCH

Last night in Brooklyn, New York, Keith Thurman retained the WBA welterweight title in a close and thrilling war over Shawn Porter. Fans are already clamoring for a rematch, and here is what the boxers had to say about a potential Thurman-Porter II: Thurman said, "I want to thank Shawn Porter for a tremendous fight.  He's a great warrior. Defense is the key to victory.  He smothers his punches a lot and makes it difficult for the judges to score.  I was able to rock him with clear, effective blows and I believe that was the difference today. I would give him a rematch. It was great fight.  He was a great opponent.  Everyone was saying would he be my toughest opponent to date.  I wasn’t able to drop him but I did buckle him a few times.” Porter, a former IBF titlist and a consummate gentleman, didn’t complain about the decision, and responded, "We worked hard, Keith is a great champion,” Porter said. “My dad says to keep your head up.  I think I won the fight, but I'm satisfied because the competitor came out tonight. We need that rematch.  I know the fans want that rematch.  If he gives me another chance, I'm going to work hard in the ring and leave with his title." source: showtime press release

 JOSHUA STEAMROLLS BREZEALE IN SEVEN

Anthony Joshua TKO7 Dominic Brezeale... In London, 2012 Olympic gold medalist Anthony Joshua made the first defense of his IBF heavyweight championship a successful one by stopping Dominic Brezeale of the United States.  After six one-sided rounds, Joshua decked Brezeale  twice in the seventh to win the battle of former Olympians. The best that can be said about Brezeale is that he outperformed Charles Martin, the man who Joshua took the IBF title from a couple of months ago. Brezeale showed plenty of heart and absorbed a lot of punishment but landed precious few significant shots of his own. Joshua shook Brezeale with a body shot in the second round, causing the American to stagger into a corner. Rather than move in for the kill, Joshua continue to work patiently and effectively behind his jab. In the seventh, a clearly spent Brezeale was rescued by referee Howard Foster when he was dropped hard for the second time in the round.source: showtime boradcast
