Top welterweight Keith "One Time' Thurman (20-0, 18KOs) told that he was not surprised with the recent news that WBA champion Paulie Malignaggi had agreed to face Adrien Broner on June 22 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Broner, the WBC's champion at 135-pounds, would move up by two divisions to face Malignaggi. In the opinion of Thurman, the welterweight champions out there are not looking to fight true welterweight contenders and would rather fight smaller guys moving up.

"He better agree to fight him or else he has to fight me. Paulie Malignaggi, and the other welterweight champions right now, they do not want to fight a true welterweight like myself. They're all trying to fight smaller guys, lighter guys, and really they should all be at 140-pounds where they orginally started at and leave my belts alone," Thurman said.

[QUOTE=MJ223]It would be nice to hear him push for the Bradley fight with the same enthusiasm [/QUOTE] My thoughts exactly. He's still begging for a title shot even though he's already earned one against Bradley.

[QUOTE=thefnshow66]Thurman should call out the winner of the Malignaggi vs Broner fight instead of focusing on Malignaggi. I think Thurman vs Broner would be a great fight.:boxing:[/QUOTE] Broner is moving back down to 135 to fight Ji-Hoon Kim after the Malignaggi fight.

From what I can tell so far, Thurman won't fight a welterweight who isn't in their mid 30's either to be fair.

Thurman should call out the winner of the Malignaggi vs Broner fight instead of focusing on Malignaggi. I think Thurman vs Broner would be a great fight.:boxing:
