Thurman: Me and Adrien Broner is a Tremendous Fight!

By Michael Campbell

This past Saturday night in San Antonio, Keith Thurman (21-0, 19KOs) captured the WBA's interim welterweight title with a tenth round stoppage of previously undefeated Diego Chaves. The victory places Thurman in line to face the full WBA champion, Adrien Broner (27-0, 24KOs), who moved up to welterweight last month and captured the title with a split decision over Paulie Malignaggi. Thurman is planning to fight at least one more time before the end of the year.

"We'll have to see what's going to happen with that....champion vs. champion. It's the world of boxing. It's a great fight. I get tweets, I get facebooked. Everybody wants to see me and Broner. We'lle have to see what the future holds. He didn't really have the best performance against Paulie. His speed was there, but his power wasn't there in the welterweight division. Paulie really moved up from 140 to the welterweight division and he was able to take Broner's punches. I'm definitely a bigger puncher than him. It's a tremendous fight because he's a young fighter and I'm a young fighter, he's athletic and I'm athletic. It's a great fight," Thurman said.

He has a chance just like everybody else a good one,broner is nothing special or what he's being pushed out to be.Thurman can box & bang,I want him saved for Maidana/Matthysse first though that's if he accepts gets through marcos…

Does it go both ways? If Money takes his first L he's getting the re. What about Canelo? If he loses by disputed split? Are we back here in early 14?
