Keith Thurman vs Danny Garcia Media Call – This coming Saturday, March 4th, seesWBC world welterweight champion Danny Garcia (33-0) facing WBA world welterweight champion Keith Thurman in a title unification bout at 147 pounds that is set to air via Showtime on CBS.
There is a lot of tension heading into this fight. A previous press event turned into controversy when Garcia’s outspoken father Angel threw racial slurs around and the elder Garcia has been banned from this conference call and subsequent public appearances. Make no mistake about it, the words have fueled the fire but the tension stems from the fact that both men sit atop one of boxing’s glamour weight classes and neither wants to give up their belt or their undefeated record. The fight was announced at the end of 2016 and both men are winding down long training camps.
Now the fight is less than 10 days away. Check your local listings for start times on CBS.
