Number 8. Keith Thurman, 26-0-0 (KO 22) – Welterweight
He’s a fighter who knows how to box from the outside, but has also power of a puncher that knocks opponent out with single punch. He’s fresh from a knockout win over tested tough-as-nails veteran Jesus Soto Karass whom he stopped in round 9 of their welterweight fight in December.
In his latest outing against veteran Leonard Bundu, Thurman was criticize by the the fans that followed him closely. He was expected to blow out the 40 year old veteran. Although Thurman scored a knockdown early in the first round, Bundu’s unorthodox style gave him a lot of troubles. But his power advantage carried the night and won a wide decision.
