Good fighter, not Of the standards of Sergey KRUSHER Kovalev, but will do well in the welterweight division.

Too early to tell .

Thurman is a dangerous dude though...

As long as he don't duck big fights , hes alright in my book .

I like Thurman, but he looks like he lets himself go between fights... damn he was looking chunky on last weekend's PPV.

Work in progress. I am not so sure how he would fare against a slick fighter with a good beard.

Currently, B- level, but I expect he has the goods to rise to B+ to A- over time.

He's legit...A Top 10 Welter...

He's no Pacquiao or Mayweather though...but that goes for everyone else at 147.

I want to see him fight Alexander.

He has all the potential in the world. All he has to do is prove it.

Obviously he has speed, power, and boxing skill. He's also very athletic, and has shown a very solid boxing IQ.

All he needs to check is how those attributes compare to other top fighters in his division, and how good his chin can hold up against big punchers. I've seen him take solid shots from supposedly big punchers, but then I've also seen him stung pretty good by not so decent punchers, and then of course there's the Soto-Karass moment. We shall see whether or not he was caught cold in that fight.

All he's gotta do is step up in competition, and we'll know. As far as what he's shown against the lesser competition, he's easily one of if not the top contenders for the "NEXT BIG THING"
