“Never count me out. I always come back.” – Andre Berto

Former welterweight world champions Andre Berto and Shawn Porter meet in a “must win” crossroads fight this Saturday, live on SHOWTIME (9:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. PT) from Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The winner in the WBC 147-pound eliminator earns a mandatory shot at unified welterweight champ Keith Thurman while Saturday’s loser, as Berto explains in this SHOWTIME Sports video feature, could “disappear into the darkness.”

The SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING® telecast begins at 9:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. PT as undefeated super welterweight world champion Jermell Charlo battles top rated challenger Charles Hatley.

Four-time world champion Amanda Serrano aims for a record-setting fifth world title when she faces former champ Dahiana Santana for the vacant WBO Bantamweight World Championship in the featured bout of SHOWTIME BOXING on SHO EXTREME® at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT.
