Is Keith Thurman Ready to get back in the Ring?

On a brand new edition of our Big Fight Weekend Preview, it’s another World Welterweight Title showdown.

This time in New York. Host T.J. Rives is ready to preview champion Keith “One Time” Thurman’s first fight in almost two years against veteran challenger Josesito Lopez in a scheduled 12 rounder Saturday night.

T.J. talks exclusively with Keith and his longtime trainer/cornerman, Dan Birmingham, in one on one interviews from the St. Pete Boxing Club in Florida.

Also, he’s joined by longtime boxing writer/columnist Keith Idec of who is covering the fight Saturday in Brooklyn.

And finally, the President of our show sponsor, Touch Vodka, Ron Bartholomew, is back on with T.J. to tell a great story about a Keith Thurman title defense in Las Vegas that he didn’t quite make it to his ringside seats in the arena for, but then crazy things happened while he was watching and rooting him on nearby!

We get you ready for Saturday night’s fight.

It’s 28-0 with 22 KOs Keith Thurman vs. Josesito Lopez in the Premier Boxing Champions main event Saturday, and it’s another Big Fight Weekend!
