Keith Thurman Opens Up: 'I Have Regrets'

Former welterweight champion Keith Thurman understands the frustration of boxing fans who have been critical of his sparse activity over the past 8½ years. Thurman, who has only fought five times since his victories over Robert Guerrero and Luis Collazo nearly nine years ago, acknowledges that he wishes he had fought more frequently.

The 35-year-old Thurman is set to end a 25-month layoff when he faces Australia's Tim Tszyu on March 30 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Thurman, who last fought in February 2022, is eager to prove that he can still compete at boxing's elite level.

Thurman expressed his eagerness to return to the ring, stating,

"This is just what I do. I know boxing, I talk boxing, but I really can perform. And I'm really looking forward to doing it one more time. It's another opportunity for me to show my greatness, for me to bring exciting action into a beautiful sport for the fans."

Thurman's layoff was extended due to several missed opportunities for significant fights, including potential matchups with Errol Spence Jr. and Yordenis Ugas. Despite these setbacks, Thurman is focused on the future and is determined to make the most of his upcoming fight with Tszyu.

Thurman vs. Tszyu will headline a Premier Boxing Champions pay-per-view show, marking the start of PBC's new partnership with Amazon Prime Video.
