Thurman: I'd Out-Punch Brook, Bring Belt Back To U.S.

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBA interim-welterweight champion Keith "One Time" Thurman (23-0, 21KOs) was ringside last Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. He watched Kell Brook (33-0, 22KOs) unseat Shawn Porter to capture the IBF welterweight championship.

Thurman was impressed with the win, but feels confident enough to travel over to the UK to defeat Brook and bring the title back home to the United States.

"I believe he called me out, we can make that fight happen, easy, as long as he’s a man of his word and his team doesn’t advise him to something else," Thurman told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

"It would be a nice fight, I already know a strategy that would be effective. Me and Porter are both strong fighters but our styles are completely different, and styles make fights. I believe I would even be able to even go over there to the UK and bring the belt back to the USA, if that fight was to happen."

Some of the contenders in the United States would be apprehensive about traveling over to the UK for a fight with Brook. Not Thurman.

"I don’t see an issue. I believe I would be able to out-punch him — very similar to what Porter was able to do — outwork him, but I would do it in a more effective manner. It would be the most difficult fight of his career, and there’s always the potential knockout victory," Thurman said.

Chaves was countering Thurman at times in their fight. Brook would give him hell.

[QUOTE=Caught Square;14881690]His team actually agreed to fight Thurman but then saw his dangerous record and pulled out which they ADMITTED, all Maidana had done at 147 was lose to Alexander so it's not like he is the Maidana of 2014…
