If there is anything you can spot with undefeated welterweight power puncher Keith Thurman, it’s just how brash and engaging of a character he is.
Thurman meets up with Italy’s Leonard Bundu on Saturday night from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in a Showtime-televised tripleheader that will see him attempt to defend his interim WBA welterweight belt. The fight takes place on the Amir Khan vs. Devon Alexander undercard.
Thurman has a polished boxing style but his power is what sets him apart as one of the game’s rising forces.
And while Thurman has been expressing a desire to face the game’s best, the Bundu match is considered easy work for the most part.
Thurman made an appearance on Wednesday afternoon inside of the MGM Grand, where he did a little bit of shadowboxing while fielding a few questions from the media.
When asked who he would like to meet in the future, Thurman pulled no punches.
Check out his full response below, where he shares some select thoughts on hopefully meeting either Floyd Mayweather, Marcos Maidana, or the Khan-Alexander winner come 2015.
