Keith Thurman: Shawn Porter is The Number One Option!

By Rick Reeno

StubHub Center, Carson, California - WBA interim-welterweight champion Keith Thurman (23-0, 21KOs) barely broke a sweat during Saturday's third round stoppage of veteran Julio Diaz. After dropping Diaz in the second, Thurman landed a bodyshot in the third that badly injured Diaz's ribs. Because of the rib injury, Diaz was unable to come out for the fourth round.

The win was impressive, especially when considering that Amir Khan went life and death with Diaz last April. And IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter (24-0-1, 15KOs) barely escaped with a draw against Diaz in December 2012. Porter made things right with a ten round unanimous decision over Diaz in their September 2013 rematch.

Under the same promotional banner of Golden Boy and handled by the same manager in Al Haymon, Thurman and Porter appear to be on a collision course in the not too distant future. While Porter wants the fight to marinate for a few, Thurman wants the showdown sooner than later.

"Porter is the number one option. Porter is what the fans want. And I would love to make the fans happy. We're both young fighters. We're the two youngest American welterweights who are undefeated. Pretty soon there will only be one who is undefeated if the fight happens tomorrow or later on in our careers," Thurman said.

[QUOTE=TLC8] PS: if you measure Diaz as a common opponent for predicting Thurman stopping Porter in 9, you should be drug tested. Porter is not the same guy who fought Diaz 2 years ago. Thurman doesn't beat Porter today.[/QUOTE] Porter fought Diaz less than a year ago. The draw was 2 years ag...

[QUOTE=iniduoh]Thurman and Porter shouldn't fight each other any time soon. That fight needs to marinate for a few years to become a mega-fight.

[QUOTE=Mayweatherducks]First and foremost. Thurman will KO Porter by the 9th round. Secondly Porter will beat Brook easy and either way it goes when Thurman KO's Porter Fraud won't give him a shot cause he don't want to get ktfo which is what would've happened so he will take the Khan Collazo win...
