Photos: Keith Thurman Drops Bombs on Diego Chaves

San Antonio, Texas - Keith Thurman (23-0, 19 KOs) took the interim WBA welterweight belt from Argentina's Diego Chavez (22-1) with a 10th-round knockout. Thurman, who started slowly and had a bloody nose through the opening three rounds, rallied and sent Chaves to the mat with a solid body shot in the ninth. Thurman finished it off 28 seconds into the 10th when he caught the slowed Chaves along the ropes with a right to the forehead.

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.
