te tumbo

SRMINIMO, while i wasn’t overly impressed with Thurman’s win over Quintana it was a notable win nonetheless. on his best day, Quintana is one slippery and crafy Mfr with a bit of sting in his punches and the conditioning to bedevil an opponent for the entire 12 rounds. considering that I considered Quintana a legitimate dark-horse contender, i feel obliged to bestow at least the same status on Thurman who displayed his own 12-round conditioning last Saturday v. a very game opponent. IMO, anybody who underestimates Thurman is in for a concussive surprise, which makes him serious in my book . . . Peace.

Te Tumbo- I’m with you about the old guys, but I’m not sure Thurman has beaten anyone yet to make him a serious contender and it’s probably not going to happen very soon either. All he’s been doing lately is fighting old guys, so Paulie is actually a step up for him at this point. They see some $$ down the line and they’re not sure he’s ready to go to the next level, so if they can jump the queue, get him a championship and pad his record at the same time, they will. Pauli is Golden Boy as well, so you know this can happen in a heart beat.

what’s up SRMINIMO? my gripe is that i think Thurman now has serious contender status. Malignaggi and Cotto’s contender status has been extended but is no longer fresh or particularly potent. save them for mop-up duties rather than squander his own prime v. yesterday’s champs and contenders and before anybody cites “business”, this fight-fan can care less about the respective bank accounts of any of these guys. that’s there problem. i pay to watch the best fights between the best comp, Period.

WTF is Thurman doing wasting our time calling out the likes of Malignaggi or Cotto!? that’s the previous era of competition. Kirkland, Angulo, Lara, Martirosyan is more like it. otherwise, i’m already suspecting the heart of this presumably dangerous fighter. beating down an undersized 154lb Paulie or ringworn gatekeeper like Cotto won’t prove he belongs in a PPV matchup and if Thurman isn’t interested in solidifying his own stature by defeating the top and prime guys in his weight-class, i’m not interested in filling his gas tank with my money.

TheTruth – totally agree, Cotto’s forgotten more about boxing than this kid has learned

Keith Thurman? Good young prospect still has a bit to go but promising young gun. Paulie has been around and needs to cash out as much as he can while he can, it’s a business like Paulie said. The Cotto comment Thurman made, hold up young one. Cotto in his prime crushes you in 5 rounds.

Sorry, I got to give Thurman props for calling out Paulie at the Presser. How many other fighters are that brave. Most just give the basic “I’ll let my team handle it” answer.

Thurman hasn’t beaten anybody to be calling out Paulie. Paulie knows this kid is just hungry and in the video above where Paulie’s talking about the Broner fight he acknowledges that and doesn’t blame Kieth since he was there once himself. He doesn’t pull any punches though and says Thurman hasn’t faced any real competition yet… that’s hard to argue. It’s a shame Broner will no doubt jump back down in weight after fighting Paulie… because Thurman vs Broner would be something.
