Keith Thurman
"One Time"









Keith Thurman is a welterweight boxing legend who has been in the sport for over 20 years. To get a better sense of who he is and what he has accomplished, we must first look at his statistics. Thurman has fought in a total of 32 professional boxing matches, winning 30 of them, losing one, and experiencing zero draws. Out of those wins, 22 have come by knockout, while he has not lost via KO in his entire career.

Thurman was a latecomer to professional boxing, making his debut at the age of 18 against Kensky Rodney on November 9, 2007. Despite his late entry into the sport, he went on to win seven consecutive fights, with each secured via stoppage. By the time he had fought 25 matches, he was elevated to the WBA (Regular) welterweight world champion. He defended the title against Robert Guerrero on March 7, 2015, winning via a 12 round unanimous decision.

Thurman is a one-time unified welterweight world champion, having won one world welterweight title. His status as world champion was effectively elevated to this position once, and he defended his unified champion status five times. In his career, Thurman has battled some of the most notable boxers in the sport, including Danny García, Robert Guerrero, Luis Collazo, Shawn Porter, Julio Díaz, Leonard Bundu and Diego Chaves, and won each of them.

While Thurman largely dominated the boxing world with his winning streak, he suffered his first professional loss against Manny Pacquiao, by way of a 12 round split-decision on July 20, 2019. This loss brought an end to his 29-fight win streak, and Pacquiao remains the only boxer to beat Thurman to this day.

Thurman's most recent fight occurred on February 5th, 2022. It was a non-title bout with fellow American boxer Mario Barrios. Thurman emerged victorious, winning via 12 round unanimous decision. It has been a little over a year since that fight, and Thurman is currently on a one-fight winning streak, with a professional record of 30-1.

To get a better idea of the highlights of Thurman's career, we should focus on some specific fights. On December 13, 2014, Thurman secured a 12th round unanimous decision win over Leonard Bundu, putting on a remarkable performance that was the first of several career highlights. His victory over Robert Guerrero on March 7, 2015, saw him successfully defend the WBA (Regular) welterweight champion title in his first world title fight.

On July 11, 2015, Thurman once again successfully defended the WBA (Regular) welterweight title, this time against Luis Collazo, winning via 7th round RTD. He defended the title again on June 25, 2016, against Shawn Porter, winning via a 12 round unanimous decision. His most significant victory came against Danny Garcia, as he became a unified welterweight world champion by defeating him via a 12 round split-decision on March 4, 2017.

Thurman's hard work and dedication to his craft, combined with his profound talent, have resulted in his illustrious career. He is still remembered and respected in the boxing community. Although he has been out of the boxing ring for quite some time, his fans are still hoping for a comeback.

Thurman's record speaks for itself, and there is no doubt that his legacy in the sport of boxing will continue to be felt long after he has retired from the ring. He has made significant contributions to the sport, and his accomplishments will be remembered as a part of boxing's rich history.
