Keith Thurman Says ‘Timid’ Danny Garcia Has No Chance Of Beating Him In Rematch
Keith Thurman feels Danny Garcia has no shot at defeating him if the two share the ring again.
Back in March 2017, Thurman and Garcia collided in a battle of the undefeated welterweight champions. Thurman held the WBA (Super) gold, while Garcia was the WBC titleholder. After 12 rounds of action, Thurman was given the split decision victory.
During a live chat on social media, a fan claimed that Garcia would beat Thurman in a rematch. “One Time” had the following response (h/t Bad Left Hook).
“It’s 2021, stop lying to yourself. Stop it, please…he barely threw any punches. He was in the pocket and he didn’t pull the trigger. He didn’t pull the trigger, he right there in the pocket. That boy, I don’t know if he got that dog in him no more, man. That Philly boy, I don’t know if he got that dog in him no more. He’s very cautious, very timid. He being a timid fighter now, hoping to land something. Stop it.
“Respect Danny, be a fan, love the boy — that’s all good. But let’s just be honest of where his skills are in the welterweight division. He’s been struggling ever since he hit 147. He been struggling, man. Let’s be real.”
Garcia was last seen in action back in December. He challenged Errol Spence Jr. for the WBC and IBF Welterweight Titles. Garcia fell short, losing a one-sided unanimous decision.
Thurman’s last appearance was back in July 2019. Thurman suffered the first loss of his pro boxing career to Manny Pacquiao. In the process, Thurman lost the WBA (Super) Welterweight Championship.
