WBA interim-welterweight champion Keith Thurman (23-0, 21KOs) is looking for another sensational knockout victory when he faces undefeated Olympian Leonard Bundu (31-0-2, 11KOs) on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
The card is headlined by a welterweight fight between former champions Amir Khan and Devon Alexander.
"I'm looking at 2015 as my break-out year. Some fans have already jumped on the bandwagon; others want to see more from me. That's why I am so anxious to get back in there; it's another chance for me to showcase my skills. If I knock out Bundu inside four rounds, I'd fight Khan the same night," Thurman said.
Most fans are overlooking Bundu, but not Thurman. In his last two fights, Bundu scored upsets against Frankie Gavin and Lee Purdy.
"Some fans think that some fights don't mean very much, but they all do. I want high-risk, high-reward fights. I'm not taking anything away from Bundu - he's a good opponent and this is his greatest opportunity - but it's my time,'' Thurman said.
