LOS ANGELES - StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., has rapidly become known amongst boxing aficionados as the place to be to see world-class fights and fighters. On Saturday, April 26, that reputation continues to grow as Golden Boy Promotions and SHOWTIME Sports® team up for an all-action tripleheader featuring some of the top fighters in the sport today. In the 12-round main event, Florida power-puncher Keith "One Time" Thurman defends his interim WBA World Welterweight Championship against former World Lightweight titleholder Julio "The Kidd" Diaz.

"To headline a show like this against a former world champion is something I've wanted to do for a long time, and that day is here," said Thurman. "I respect Julio Diaz and I will not underestimate him. He knows that this may be his last shot, and I expect the best from him, but I'll be the one leaving with the victory." 

"This is a big opportunity for me to face a fighter that is feared by many, but not by me," said Diaz. "I have been in the ring with far more dangerous and experienced fighters in the past, and everyone knows that I come to fight. My previous opponents Amir Khan and Shawn Porter will tell you that. "

[QUOTE=JQside]Lopez would have been more tolerable. It would been action-packed at least in the first half of the fight. Lopez's punches sting and is able to follow them up with combinations. That's why you have to wonder why Thurman was never pitted with such types of fighters. Ortiz was availab...

Awful fight. Thurman is going to crack Diaz in 6.
