Unification WBC & WBA Welterweight Title – Thurman v Garcia


Thurman gets split decision in fight that fails to deliver the hype

A battle of two unbeaten fighter in New York, most were expecting an explosive contest between WBC Champion Danny Garcia and WBA Champion Keith Thurman. In the end it delivered a fairly cagey affair. Despite a quick start from Thurman he then backed off into jab and move mode keeping at at range. The fight was tough to score as Garcia was coming forward most of the time but Thurman was delivering the higher quality shots on the counter. In a contest that could have gone either way, the scores were as close as it looked with Thurman getting a split decision by four and two points on two card with Garcia getting the other by two points. There is scope for a rematch, although the stunted nature of much of the contest could mean the demand is not there.
