StubHub Center, Carson, California - WBA interim-welterweight champion Keith Thurman (23-0, 21KOs) stopped veteran Julio Diaz (40-10-1, 29KOs) in three rounds, after Diaz suffered a rib injury and was unable to come out for the fourth.

Thurman with the power edge in the first, landing some heavy lumber with both hands. Diaz took the punches well and attempted to return fire. In the second Diaz was rocked and eventually went down after a delayed reaction. The round closed with the two of them trading punches. The third round was all-action, with punches flying from both fighters. Before the start of the fourth, Diaz retired on his stool with a rib injury after the corner notified the referee that he couldn't continue.

We all knew Thurman was going to win last night. I do like the way he moves around in the ring. He has solid offense and his defense is getting better with each fight. Diaz was there to win I give him a lot of credit. I hope he decides to retire now. There is no need to be a stepping stone f...

[QUOTE=TLC8]If Thurman can beat Bradley, then we can throw him in with the best of the division and make those fights happen. I'm afraid you throw Thurman in now, he resemble Rios against Pacquiao. Kell Brooks is another. These big bangers come along with a fluffed up record, knocking everyone ou...
