Keith thurman outlined his return and wants to fight against a world champion, among which are Yordenis ugas (welterweight AMB), Jermell charlo (super welterweight WBA, FIB Y CMB) or Gervonta davis (super feather, super light and lightweight AMB).
“Fight with Ugas it would be very good, he is a great champion and has a great style ”, he commented Thurman to ThaBoxingVoice. “He is Cuban and gave a great display against Shawn porter, but he did not end up completely letting go of his hands and that ended up costing him in the decision ”.
The Cuban has the title that he lost Thurman after he was defeated by Manny pacquiao in 2019 in which it was the last fight of both, so he could recover the belt to later look for Errol spence.
“Confront Ugas It would be great in the welterweight, “considered the American boxer. “I have not known of a date and I have heard few rumors about whether he wants to confront me, but time will tell what awaits us.”
However, another way to cope with Spence could be through Jermell charlo, as if Errol rises to 154 pounds, a challenge against a multi-champion could loom on the horizon, a situation that Thurman has well analyzed.
“It would be very difficult to say no to all belts and refuse the opportunity to be champion once again in different divisions,” he said. “I haven’t thought much about going up to 154, but maybe that thought will come to me around 34 or 35 years old.”
At the same time, Thurman knows that of a hypothetical triumph over Charlo in the future, this could lead to Spence to climb up and challenge him for the belts.
Even so, he knows that the situation is complicated by the possible rematch with Brown on the horizon and the mandatory defense that must be carried out previously.
“In a fantasy world I would choose or a fight with Tank davis or Jermell charlo on a secondary welterweight match against Jamal james I don’t think it would demand so much of me ”, he considered.
Finally, Thurman assured that his love of the sport and desire to expand his credentials after what his fall with Pacquiao They motivate him to return in search of glory.
“I’m for the love of boxing,” he commented. “I love my credentials and I want to add more successes and a fight like that makes me excited. At worst I fall short against Charlo and I just decide to go back to welterweight. “
