    Keith 'One Time' Thurman has the unfortunate reputation of being of a ducker of Errol Spence. However, this us the furthest thing from the truth. When Thurman won the WBA (Regular) belt, challenged Floyd the WBA (Super) for unification. Floyd did the ACTUAL ducking by not fighting Thurman (who was his mandatory) to fight Berto. He then insisted that Thurman fight unknown prospect by the name of 'Errol Spence'. Thurman rightfully didn't accept the offer as Spence was an unknown prospect with no belt & no name. Floyd would retire soon after, leaving Thurman in the dark - officially ducking him & robbing him of a career high payday & a legacy fight. By the time Spence actually won a belt in 2017, Keith Thurman (now a unified champion) was injured & out for over a year. Therefore, the fight couldn't happen. When he came back, he was rusty & it showed in his comeback fight against Josesito Lopez. By then, Spence wasn't interested in Thurman & was fighting Garcia. Thurman would go on to lose against Pacquiao. Spence then beat Porter to become a unified champ. That concluded the Thurman-Spence saga. So this just shows that Thurman couldn't have ducked Spence & the fight likely woukd have never happened.

    It doesn't matter Thurman has never ducked Spence or not. Now Thurman is doing the same thing as he did before. After getting beaten by Pacquiao, he has not fought anyone for over a year. I suggest him to hang them up.

    Floyd vs Berto feels like it happened a lifetime ago.

    Thurman opted for Pac because since 2013 he said he would easily beat him. Lol. Backfired against an ancient pacman. Thurman must still be taking it hard, Spence would run all over him.

    Thurman has a weak glass body that was exposed by Collazo. He was hurt against Porter and went MD with Pac because his body almost shattered along with his hippie chin when Pac dropped him.

    I think the only reason Floyd fought Berto was because Al Haymon had promised Berto that fight since 2009. Remember when Berto was hyped to death by HBO? I miss HBO boxing sometimes, they knew how to sell a fighter.

    Even more embarrassing, he kept calling Pacquiao a lightweight leading up to the fight.

    :lol:

    He got brass balls, though. Never ever showed quit. He put it all on the line in the Pac fight.

    Thurman is trying to get a fight with Spence right now and he is claiming that Spence will not fight him because he didn't give Spence a shot, and Spence is playing tit for tat. He wants Spence to let by gones be by gones. This came from his mouth in an interview.

    Keith is bald now. And he all lost his power before that. Jesus, I doubt he can even muster up a Hail Mary Malignaggi feather duster now.:shakehead:

    The only thing missing from Thurmans duck was orange sauce.

    Amazing :lol: Keith "Samson" Thurman.


    That hairline is on the ropes, but I rate him for cutting it all off, nothing worse than a man clinging on to thinning fluffy fuzz and pretending he still has hair.

    Tyson Fury should be an example for all, if it starts to thin then shave it off, attack it, front it out and don't let a thinning head of hair bother you.
