Thurman Shreds Danny Garcia For Saying He Won Their Fight

By Radio Rahim

WBC, WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman (28-0, 22 KOs) is a bit annoyed with some of the recent comments that are being made by former two division world champion Danny Garcia (31-1, 19 KOs).

Last March, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Garcia lost a twelve round split decision to Keith Thurman in their anticipated unification bout.

Neither boxer has been inaction since that fight, but both have contest coming up in the next few months.

Garcia will return next month, when he faces former world champion Brandon 'Bam Bam' Rios (34-3-1, 25 KOs). The Showtime televised fight is scheduled for February 17th, at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

Thurman has a Showtime televised date of May 19th, at Barclays, against an opponent to be determined.

In some of his recent interviews, Garcia has disagreed with the scorecards that gave him his first career defeat. 

Garcia feels strongly that he did more than enough to defeat Thurman and vows to get revenge when the step in the ring again.

"It's just a loss on paper. I feel like I won the fight, it is what it is," Garcia said. "It does bother me because I know I'm the better fighter, but I have to put it in the past. I don't let it bother me; you have to have thick skin and come back stronger. "

The fight with Rios is a WBC final eliminator. With a victory, Garcia will be in line for a mandatory rematch with Thurman - who already owes a mandatory defense against Shawn Porter.

Once Porter gets his shot at Thurman - the winner will be mandated to face the winner of Garcia-Rios.

Thurman had a lot to say after reading some of the recent statements from Garcia.

"I can care less what a lot of other people say, but one of my favorite comments was from Danny Garcia. So Danny Garcia was like 'Thurman, he didn't throw any punches.' Well first off, I'm gonna have to school you in the ring and I'm gonna have to school you outside of the ring," Thurman said to BoxingScene.com.

"When I throw punches, it's like a mathematical equation. You want to say how many punches I threw, but check how many punches you threw homie - because I always outpunched you. Even the commentators were saying, 'Thurman is not that active, but he's currently thrown more than Danny Garcia.' What was that the tenth or eleventh round? Recap it my boy.

"If you really want to beat me - up the punch count. But guess what? When you up the punch count I'll up the punch count, because I'm going to stay above you. Danny Garcia is not hard to outwork. Shawn Porter is a harder fighter to outwork, Danny Garcia is not hard to outwork. Even without working he got outworked. So I don't got to do nothing if you not motherf***ing doing nothing."

The fact is, Thurman carried Garcia for the last quarter of that fight. It's just like in American football. When a team is up by a huge substantial margin late in the ball game; Often times, the Head coach occasionally…

Garcia lost but Thurman's tactics in the second half of the fight made his win less convincing than it could have been.The KO's ended for "One Time" once the competition got better.
