I really enjoyed this fight and it was a huge performance and progression for Keith Thurman in his career. Two huge punchers exchanging good stuff.

Good win for Thurman. Soto-Karass deserved the bonus though.

Danny Garcia should take notes from the way Thurman fought and made adjustments last night.
