Boxing has officially returned to primetime network television. Premier Boxing Champions’ action packed main event did not disappoint as Keith “One Time” Thurman (25-0 21, KOs) won a clear unanimous decision over Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (32-3-1, 18 KOs) in a great fight that lived up to expectations.
There was no feeling-out period in this fight, as Keith Thurman sprung out of his corner with an attack that had Guerrero on his heals. Thurman continued to push the action and land crisp combinations that seemed to have Guerrero flustered in the beginning of the bout. Although “The Ghost” was able to land some nice counter punches; Thurman was landing the heavier blows with more consistency.
In the third round, right when it seemed like frustration was settling in for Guerrero, an accidental headbutt caused a massive hematoma up near Thurman’s hairline above his left eye. Guerrero seemed bolstered by the damage to Thurman and put together his best two minutes of the fight up until this point.
As the fight went on, it was becoming apparent that while Guerrero’s chin was certainly up to the task, Thurman’s punches were doing more damage. Guerrero would land some great counter shots, but they never seemed to deter Thurman’s pursuit.
