No matter how you cut it, it’s always great having someone like Keith Thurman around the sport of boxing.
Thurman (30-1, 22 KO’s) is quite the enigma. I recall the Clearwater, FL native making some noise back in the Tampa area in the late 2000’s, and that buzz carried over as Thurman began piling up wins, fighting more and more outside of his home state, and marching up boxing’s ladder.
