Hungry. Fierce. Focused. Relentless.
If I were only talking about one fighter this prediction would be easy, but both Keith “One Time” Thurman (24-0, 21 KOs) and Robert “Ghost” Guerrero (32-2-1, 18 KOs) are all of these things. Two fighters with different stances but comparable styles and heart will keep boxing fans on the edge of their seats as they headline NBC’s Premier Boxing Champions card this Saturday, March 7, 2015, with the WBA Welterweight title on the line.
For a while, the bouts on NBC were pure speculation, and now they have become reality. Finally, fight fans can look forward to seeing competitive matchups among the talented divisions, and this is a spectacular way to kick off the fights.
We get to see an undefeated Thurman and ambitious Guerrero, two of the top 10 welterweights, throw on the gloves for what has the potential to be a fight of the year. Two things are for sure: One Time Thurman is not afraid to press the action more than once, and Guerrero is not the Patrick Swayze ghost you’re used to.
We can rest easy knowing that Thurman vs. Guerrero should not fall short in the action department.
