Keith Russell: Regardless Of Title, ‘I’m One Of Greatest’
Regardless of holding a title or not, Keith Thurman believes he has a strong standing in the boxing welterweight division.
Keith Thurman is set to return to the ring in February.
Thurman will face Mario Barrios on February 5 live on FOX Sports PBC pay-per-view. The event takes place in Las Vegas.
A former unified welterweight champion, Thurman knows how important this bout is.
The last time he fought was in 2019 when he dropped a decision to Manny Pacquiao. That ended a 29-fight win streak for Thurman, that included eight title defenses.
Barrios is also coming off his first loss, a finish by Gervonta Davis. He dropped the WBA super lightweight title to Davis and is 26-1 overall.
