Thurman Would Love Statement KO Win of Tim Bradley

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBA interim-welterweight champion Keith Thurman (23-0, 21KOs) is very interested in landing a potential fight with former two-division champion Timothy Bradley (31-1, 12KOs). Now that Golden Boy Promotions and Top Rank are on better working terms, Thurman could see himself facing a fighter promoted under the Top Rank banner.

"Definitely. Timothy is a big name, he’s been around and I would be able to make a big statement with getting a victory, and especially a KO victory over Timothy Bradley," Thurman told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

While Thurman could see himself landing a Bradley fight, he doesn't have the same confidence about getting a potential fight with Top Rank's star fighter, Manny Pacquiao.

"We’ll have to see. Pacquiao has yet to fight a Golden Boy fighter. I don’t know how many more fights Pacquiao really plans on having in his career. I haven’t really heard him talk about retirement or anything like that. I still don’t know what Pacquiao plans on doing with his future," Thurman said.

[QUOTE=C-SHO;14902509]Thurman's power is ridiculously overrated, he would be a fool to fight Bradley which is a huge jump up in his usual competition. Bradley will box circles around Thurman, anyone with boxing knowledge should be able to see this and…
