Keith Thurman out until 2020

Former WBA and WBC welterweight champion Keith Thurman (29-1, 22 KOs) has announced on social media that he will be out of action for the rest of the year.

Keith Thurman: I recently had surgery on my left hand to deal with a nagging injury. I feel great and can’t wait to get back in the ring in early 2020. My injuries have been frustrating, but thanks to your support I’m determined to become a Champ again soon… #OneTime

  • When? December 2020?
    This is unheard that a fighter got so many injuries on his arms.
    Thurman should think about retirement, because maybe his body is not for this type of sport.
    Good fighter, despite all these setbacks

  • Keith “it’s not your time” Thurman, are you going to us the hand injury as an excuse, we’ll wait for the next shoe to drop!!

    • So Manny Pacquiao can give an “excuse” for a hurt shoulder and Thurman can’t for an apparently
      injured hand?

  • Thurman should go back to Golden Boy, and see if he can get a title fight with the WBO at 154 if Munguia vacates late this year. Thurman has a shot against most of the top guys in the WBO at 154. If Thurman wants to be a WBO champ for awhile, mid 2020 to late 2021, that is probably his best chance.

  • Give the guy a break, truly no pun intended. The man apparently has a nagging injury. Since when did saying “hey I have a nagging injury and need to have surgury” become an “excuse”. It’s not like he’s holding up the division.

  • Keith “outta time” Thurman needs to retire. His body is not built for this, and I’m sick of the hype.

  • AGREED!! this dude is way to fragile to be a fighter. What sux is hes gonna come back in 2020 and try to fight at the highest level and be given the shot. Dude shld jus hang em up. Everytime I hear the name Thurman, I associate it with injury lmao.. that’s a shame Keith “Once Upon a Time” Thurman hahaha

  • Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeet…. how long this time Keith no more time Thurman? Hype Job!!!
