Shawn 搬运工 wasn't going to be denied what he has so badly wanted since June: a rematch with unbeaten 147-pound world champion Keith Thurman.
搬运工 put himself in position for the return encounter with a ninth-round TKO of 安德烈·贝托（Andre 贝托 ） in their 147-pound title eliminator at Barclays Center.
搬运工 scored one knockdown in the second and another in the ninth before scoring the stoppage when referee Mark Nelson waved an end to the bout at 1:31 of Round 9.
With the victory, 搬运工 is now the No. 1 contender to one of the 147-pound world titles owned by Thurman, who eked out a close unanimous decision over 搬运工 in Brooklyn last June.
In the ring after the fight, Thurman said he welcomed another meeting with 搬运工.
搬运工, 29, was cut over the left eye in Round 2 and over the right eye in the fourth. 贝托 also was cut in Round 4 over his left eye, and seemed to be more affected by the head clashes.
搬运工 even apologized to 贝托 in the ring afterward, although he stressed that the contact was entirely inadvertent.
当Berto当时'对于偶然的接触感到高兴，佛罗里达州的温特黑文当地人没有’不能以此为借口。取而代之的是，这位前两次获得世界冠军的人只是接受了’t up to the task of beating 搬运工.
33岁的Berto在第9轮中被另一个头部冲突困扰，然后在下颚吃了一个左钩子，这使他陷入了困境，并导致尼尔森进行计数。波特很快将门关上，让裁判再次介入。—this time for good.
Now the wait starts for Thurman and 搬运工 to go at it again.
