Keith Thurman rips Danny Garcia’s performance against Errol Spence!
Former unified welterweight champion Keith “One Time” Thurman (29-1, 22KOs) is back to his trash talking ways. You know, the trash talk that made fans love him when he was on the rise and knocking fighters out left and right! Yeah, that Thurman is back!
The beltless Thurman is not quite the hot commodity he once was. Although labeled injury prone and now no longer unbeaten, do not tell him that! Appearing confident as ever, he decided to take a shot at a former adversary. Chatting with his fans live on social media, the name Danny Garcia came up and Thurman wasted no time ripping the former two-division world champion’s and performance against Spence.
DANNY GARCIA WAS SCARED!
“Me and Danny Garcia man, Danny’s last performance was wack. You know, he threw a few things. How you gonna throw the only flurry, the only flurry was the last flurry in the last fifteen seconds. He was scared boy, he was scared that whole time. None of these dudes want to take a hit man on television. None of them want to get that guap guap. He was in the pocket and he didn’t even do nothing to EJ.”
After a fan proclaims victory for Garcia in a rematch, Thurman laughs off the comment by questioning if the Philly fighter still has that dog in him.
THURMAN LAUGHS OFF GARCIA REMATCH!
“It’s 2021 stop lying to yourself, stop it please! Handle me in a rematch oh my god, oh my god! He barely threw any punches, he was in the pocket and he didn’t pull the trigger, pop pop, he didn’t pull the trigger. He right there in the pocket, that boy, that boy I don’t know if he got that dog in him no more man. That Philly boy, I don’t know if he got that dog in him no more man. He’s very cautious, very timid, he being a timid fighter now just hoping to land something. Stop it! Respect Danny, be a fan, love the boy. That’s all good, but let’s just be honest where his skills are in the welterweight division. He’s been struggling every since he hit 147, okay. He’s been struggling man, let’s be real, alright.”
Thurman is not wrong about the performance. It was a very poor showing from not only Danny, but also his father and trainer Angel Garcia, who failed to provide proper instructions to adjust to what Spence was doing. However, Thurman has not looked the best himself and has not fought since suffering his first loss to Manny Pacquiao in July of 2019. There, he would lose his WBA welterweight title. Prior to that fight, he had more than a few shaky moments against Josesito Lopez (38-8, 21KOs) where he was hurt multiple times and relegated to getting on his bicycle en route to a unanimous decision.
A rematch would still be interesting considering their fight was competitive, albeit a clear win for Thurman. At this point, both men need a confidence booster and if Thurman feels so confident about a repeat performance, maybe it would be a good idea to get the Philly native in the ring again sometime in 2021.
