Keith Thurman Back in Action March 9th
Keith “One Time” Thurman (19-0, 18 KO’s), the 24 year old junior middleweight prospect from Clearwater Beach, Florida will climb back into the ring March 9th at Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, NY. This appearance will be part of a three fight HBO televised card, with Bernard Hopkins vs. Tavoris Cloud for the IBF light heavyweight title being the main event. This will be Thurman’s third fight televised on HBO.
Thurman has been touted by some as the 2012 prospect of the year. He is known to possess one punch power that can quickly end a fight by knockout. He is a pressure fighter who constantly moves in on his opponents. This was evident in his most recent fight against former WBO welterweight champion Carlos Quintana (29-4, 23 KO’s).
Thurman had an impressive showing against the veteran Quintana back on November 24th. Thurman landed a devastating left hook to the body late in the first round, sending Quintana to the canvas. The body shot injured Quintana and Thurman continued to apply pressure for the rest of the fight. His attack had a mixture of consistent head shots and thunderous body blows. Thurman was able to put Quintana away in the fourth round after he land a combination followed by a left hook that left Quintana out on his feet. Thurman chased the defenseless Quintana around the ring until the referee stopped the bout.
Although Thurman has continued to look impressive he has yet to face any quality competition. Quintana was a former champion but he is 36, 12 years older than Thurman. Thurman, being a knockout artist, has yet to show how well he is conditioned. He has had one fight go past six rounds and that was in an eight round fight, in which he won his sole decision.
Thurman’s opponent for his March 9th fight date has yet to be named. The exciting, young fighter deserves to be matched with another serious contender in the weight division. This would not only allow him to showcase his abilities as a competitive junior middleweight but, also give him a chance to silence any critics.
