Former welterweight champion Shawn Porter will fight on the Mayweather vs McGregor Preliminary Card on FOX. Finally, the pay-per-view undercard for the Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor has already concluded that the full preliminary card will set on FOX. These are the following fight that will be broadcasted, main card start time will be 9 PM ET on Saturday, August 26th:
Shawn Porter (27-2-1, 17 KOs) against Thomas Dulorme (24-2, 16 KOs) – 10 rounds, welterweights (147 lbs).

Shawn Porter is one of the biggest names that will fight in the undercard, who’s the former IBF welterweight champion before was defeated by Kell Brook in 2014. His most recent winning shot with a Major Title again ended in a fight against WBA Champion Keith Thurman in a close defeat in June 2016. Shawn Porter is coming off from a TKO against Andre Berto in April, and perhaps considered as one of his best wins is a fight against Paulie Malignaggi that is a four-round knockout. Dulorme has fought at both 140 and 147 pounds but was billed as a top prospect in the latter division. He most notably fought and was lost against Terrence Crawford by a Technical Knockout a couple of years ago. Some of his top wins are against DeMarcus Corley, Karim Mayfield, and Hank Lundy. The Puerto Rican is still just 27 years old, so there’s still a good amount of time to make himself better and rebuild as a feasible contender.
The Mayweather vs McGregor will air on Fox live from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada at 7 PM ET/4 PM PT.
