WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman wants to defend his title against Shawn Porter and cement his reputation.
The 26-year-old is hoping to face his fellow American before the end of the year before moving on to unification fights in 2016.
Thurman, nicknamed 'One Time' had been in the running to face divisional king Floyd Mayweather Jr before his retirement but is determined to press on regardless having seemingly missed his chance to face 'Money.'
