The WBC is going to make Danny Garcia (33-1, 19 KOs) and Shawn Porter earn a title shot against WBC welterweight champion Keith “One Time” Thurman by fighting each other for the interim WBC 147lb title.

Thurman, 28, is out of action recovering from recent elbow surgery, which will keep him on the shelf until 2018.

In the meantime, World Boxing Council president Mauricio Sulaiman is ordering Porter and Garcia to fight. The winner of the contest will be the guy that fights Thurman. It’s not exactly the best deal for Porter (27-2-1, 17 KOs), who already earned the WBC mandatory position by beating Andre Berto by a 9th round knockout on April 22 in a WBC 147 lb. title eliminator at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Porter, 29, wanted to fight Danny Garcia.

In the meantime, Porter has a fight to get out of the way against Thomas Dulorme (24-2, 16 KOs) on the undercard of the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor fight card on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

He must beat Dulorme for him to be able to battle for the interim WBC welterweight title against Danny Garcia.
