Thurman: Pretty Soon, I'll Be on Mayweather's Radar
By Michael Campbell
WBA interim-welterweight champion Keith "One Time" Thurman (21-0, 19KOs) is still dreaming about a possible fight with WBC champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs). Thurman is one fight away from getting a shot at the full WBA championship, which is currently held by Adrien Broner. Mayweather returns against Saul "Canelo" Alvarez on September 14th. In 2014, Thurman hopes, he will get his sought after shot at Mayweather.
"If you're a welterweight and you are not trying to get the king in the ring, then I don't know what you're doing in the welterweight division. We still want Floyd Mayweather. It's a long journey. I'm still young and coming up. I got him on my radar and I'm pretty sure that you will soon see that I'll be on his radar," Thurman said.

Welterweight is definitely becoming the most competitive class in boxing right now.. All the talent from light welter seems to be moving up as well.Comment by Cinci Champ on 07-31-2013

thurman proved few things after the chavez fight to me .. one he's just not about power ,...he boxed pretty good and controlled the fight .. lastly , pretty sure no one can question the man's durability by now ...Post a Comment/View More User Comments (57)
