Shawn Porter dethroned International Boxing Federation champ Devon Alexander late Saturday, winning the world welterweight title with a 12-round unanimous decision.
Porter kept his undefeated record intact, improving to 23-0-1 as he took the fight to Alexander to win on scores of 115-113, 116-112, 116-112.
"We worked hard and it came through in the ring," Porter said. "We made it look easy."
The 26-year-old Porter connected on several hard shots in rounds three and four against the fellow American, and impressed the judges with his consistent work ethic.
