There isn’t much not to like with former world champion Keith Thurman.
Thurman, the former holder of the WBA and WBC welterweight titles, has yet to step back inside of the ring since suffering his first career loss in July of 2019 in Las Vegas. In that contest, Thurman faced off with eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao, and was dropped in the first round and fell behind early. Thurman rallied late, but lost on the cards after 12 spirited and competitive rounds.
Later tonight, Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KO’s) will face off with WBA welterweight champion Yordenis Ugas (26-4, 12 KO’s) inside of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Thurman knows all too well what Ugas is up against and has a very unique perspective of what to expect when the bell rings for round one.
But that wasn’t the only thing on Thumrna’s mind. He addressed recent rumors and talk of a possible showdown with multi-divisional threat and champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis. Thurman seems very open to the idea of the matchup, and is waiting to hear from Davis himself on his desires for such a contest.
