Former world welterweight champion (up to 66.7 kg), American Keith Thurman (29-1-0, 22 KO), preparing to return to the ring after being defeated by Filipino legend Manny Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KO), said he is aiming to face divisional leader, compatriot Errol Spence Jr. (26-0-0, 21 KO) in 2021.
“I was a champion even before I won the belts. A champion is a way of thinking. And you cannot take that away from me. I will remain him until I die.
I don’t know what this Errol kid was using, and I’m not sure how much he was injured in the car accident. You’re talking to Keith Thurman, boy! You and me, 2021. And it will be very soon. I just want the best possible fight, “Thurman said.
