SHOWTIME CARD WILL “GET YOU UP”

San Francisco, CA- There are a small group of fighters in the “developmental” stage of boxing that make people take note. Unbeaten welterweight (147 lb.) contender Keith Thurman was once thought to be overly protected, much like the flawed Adrien Broner, but unlike Broner, Thurman is dedicated to his craft, while Adrien concentrated on keeping his hair eloquently groomed..

KEITH HAS ANSWERED EVERY QUESTION THUS FAR

Although Keith is being put in fights he’s supposed to win, which is the formula for netting experience for a contender on the way up, the manner in which Keith takes care of business in the squared circle has been impressive. Tonight he meets Joel Diaz, a not exactly shopworn fighter, but one with a pulse and a name in Showtime’s main event.

THURMAN IS FISTIC VIAGRA


When I look at Thurman, I see a young, hungry, semi-proven contender that is ready to challenge for a title at 147. He is the “five hour” erection the Viagra makers warn of. People want to see him fight. There are few people that “deliver” the goods like Mr. Thurman does. Whether he is a flash in the pan, something I do not think, or Thurman is the guy that could right now beat Manny Pacquiao, Tim Bradley or anybody of that ilk, only time will tell.

MAULING BOXER/PUNCHER WITH SKILLS NOT IN MAYWEATHER FUTURE

Thurman, 22-0, 20 KOs, has the skills to do well, but does he have the mental backbone? When he is put in the deep end of the boxing pool, we will then see if he is solid gold or gold electroplate. Diaz (40-9-1, 29 KOS) is rough and will make Thurman look good by standing right there and in turn Keith will forcefully send him to the showers early. As for Mayweather fighting Thurman, Floyd’s dance card has been filled out. Marcos Maidana, Amir Khan, and two other true non-entities will take Floyd to 50-0, where he will retire filthy rich and a blight to true boxing historians.

MAIDANA GAME….BUT THAT’S IT

Marcos Maidana will bring it May 3 and unless Floyd ages 30 years in one night, another Latino bites the dust.

COMMENTS

  1. How do you think Canelo vs. Lara is going to go? Do you think it will be an entertaining fight or do expect Lara to move constantly, trying to win on points?

  2. I meant Latino. Thanks. Lara is bigger and has a style that can make Saul look bad and lose. But Canelo and team want him now. More power to Canelo as he could have fought me, Not Dundee and you Carlos, and still made oodles of money. Brave move.

  3. I must say I was impressed by Thurman. The way he fought, the way he carries himself, his spectacular approach, also his flaws make him an exciting fighter. Julio Diaz was no pushover put looked out of his league on saturday.
    quote of the night:
    “I’m 23-0 but not afrain to let the O go!”
    Right on!
    Cheers
