To say welterweight champion Keith Thurman knows Danny Garcia and Shawn Porter would be an understatement.
Thurman has shared the ring with both Garcia and Porter, who collide Saturday night for the WBC title, which Thurman vacated.
Back in 2016, Thurman picked up a decision victory over Porter, adding a majority decision win vs. Garcia a year later. How close were each fight to going the other way? One round scored differently would have resulted in a different outcome.
Instead, Thurman picked up wins, giving him bragging rights for the time being.
Recently, Thurman discussed the fights with Showtime’s Steve Farhood to break down what he calls “one of the best matchups of the year” in the seven key categories including punching power, physical strength, defense, speed, boxing ability, ring IQ and of course, chin.
