Default Just HOW GOOD is KEITH THURMAN??

I haven't seen a single fight.
To TKO Quintana is pretty damn impressive, as well as his record of 19(18KO)-0 and the fact that he won prospect of the year 2012 or something like that.

What level bests describes his BOXING ABILITY?

a) A Marcos Maidana who doesn't have the boxing ability to outbox good fighters i.e Devon Alexander, Amir Khan etc.

b) A Lucas Matthysse who is on SOMEWHAT OF A SIMILAR level in terms of boxing ability against good fighters i.e Garcia, Devon Alexander.

c) Near/just below a Miguel Cotto who can outbox all them folks i.e Garcia, Ortiz etc. etc.

(I mentioned three big punchers because Thurman is also a big puncher).

If he looks like he can be option c, it's something to be INCREDIBLY excited about!

I've seen him live before and can tell you he's the real deal. Has a great skillset. Uses his instruments with ease. Country's not my cup of tea, though.

Is there a "D" level?

D.) Still green w/alot of flaws but great potential & time to improve.

Why is everyone so desperate to find a silver lining with this guy?

The flaws are obvious, plentiful, and the foremost thing I notice about him besides the fact that he's got some decent pop (not the bone-crushing Julian Jackson power some were pitching him as having before his HBO debut against Lora...)

Like I said, I don't like country, so can't really tell you to be honest. The fact he banged Nicole Kidman has to put him at an A- TO A, though.

One time baby. One time. ANY-BODY can get it. Thurman knocks out ANYBODY between 147-154. He'll be the most avoided fighter for the next 10 years.

he's not very defensively sound so that's bound to be his undoing, whether he has a good chin or not, but he has true punching power and is incredibly aggressive, loves going for the KO, is incredibly confident, and works the body. he's a very exciting guy to watch, so whether he's a future atg or not, it'll be great to see how his career plays out.
