Kell Brook MD 12 Shawn Porter live round-by-round updates

RingTV.com has a live round-by-round  update on this page of Saturday night’s welterweight fight during which Kell Brook dethroned Shawn Porter by majority decision for the IBF title at StubHub Center in Carson, Calif.

Brook had an overall advantage in punches (158-to-154) and jabs (87-to-24), but trailed in power shots (130-to-74).

Over the course of his previous five fights, Porter (24-1-1, 15 knockouts) had battled to a draw and a unanimous decision win against Julio Diaz, scored a unanimous decision over Phil LoGreco, dethroned Devon Alexander for the IBF welterweight belt and defended it with a fourth round stoppage of Paulie Malignaggi.

Brook (33-0, 22 KOs) failed to score his fifth straight stoppage against Porter – including a fourth-round TKO of former titleholder Vyacheslav Senchenko – but had appeared to have shown steady improvement during that time. 

Brook made only his second appearance on American soil, having debuted in Atlantic City with a fifth round stoppage of Luis Galarza in 2011.

 The Showtime broadcast will begin at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
