Here is what Thurman had to say Wednesday from the St. Petersburg Boxing Club:
 
KEITH THURMAN
 
"At the end of the day, it's just another fight. My job has not changed since I was seven years old. This is the sport that I love. The name of the game to hit and not get hit, but you know I'm looking to inflict some damage as well.
 
"I just want to keep moving myself up and establishing my legacy. I want to distinguish myself from the other welterweights. The winner of this fight will get the spotlight over everyone else in the division.
 
"I'm doing this for my career, for my legacy and for the fans. Without the fans, there's no legacy. I've been boxing for 21 years of my life and I look forward to having some more great years. I'm proud to be living my dream.
 
"To get two tremendous fights back-to-back is evidence that I'm on the right track and you could say we're gaining more power in the sport. I'm getting what I want out of the sport, which are big fights like this.
 
"This is something that the fans are excited about and I'm truly looking forward to this fight. I just want to keep living my dreams and working to become the best fighter in the world.
 
"Establishing a unification of a weight class is my ultimate goal in the sport of boxing. That's what we're working for."

DAN BIRMINGHAM, Thurman's Trainer
 
"The preparation has been fantastic. Keith has been on both. His long runs, short runs, sprinting, listening to everything in the gym not to mention great sparring. You are going to see a great performance.
 
"This is a dream come true for me. I never dreamed of this when I was Youngstown, OH before I came to Florida. When I came here there were guys like Jeff Lacy and Winky Wright that came into my gym who I've been fortunate enough to work with. Then came Ben Getty and Keith Thurman.
 
"I owe most of this to Ben Getty. I want him to get a lot of the recognition. He really deserves it. I am just trying to continue what he started.
 
"Fans are going to see a great performance. They are going to see a well-conditioned, well-trained Keith Thurman. He is very focused on getting rid of Garcia and moving up in the ranks."

Im picking One Time. I respect DSG, he may not always look like a world-beater, but he always manages to find a way to win (and I did have him edging Herrera). But I think all this time fighting PBC…
