(WBA ‘Super’ Welterweight Champion)
Keith ‘One-Time’ Thurman (28-0-0, 22KO) = 146.5 LBS.
(WBA #7 world contender)
Josesito Lopez (36-7-0, 19KO) = 146.5 LBS.
Keith Thurman after a 23 month hiatus makes his return to the ring in efforts to defend his Welterweight title, and to remind people of his standing within the division, and more notably within the sport. Josesito Lopez is a battler, who already has one upset on his resume back in 2012 when he defeated Victor Ortiz, and feels he has a grand opportunity to do it again, especially considering that rust may just set in with Thurman, who relies on his instinctual movement defensively.
