Porter was at the Watson Brothers charity basketball event and spoke exclusively with Inside Fighting’s Andrew Capucetti about Ryan Garcia’s big win over Oscar Duarte, breaking down the bout, giving Garcia a grade, and highlighting what he needs to improve on.

Shawn Porter Says Ryan Garcia’s Shoulder Roll Needs Work

“I hated [his shoulder roll,” Porter laughed. “I thought it was effective, only because Duarte [is not] smart enough to figure it out … [Garcia’s defense] was terrible!”

That sounds harsh from the former boxer and current commentator, but Porter didn’t harp on the one hole he saw in Garcia’s game – stating that it was a “great performance overall.”

“B+, A-,” Porter responded when asked to give Ryan Garcia a grade.
