The Return of 'One Time' August 4th

Keith Thurman to make a long-awaited return to the squared circle.

By Aaron Cooper   - @intuboxingfm

Following Floyd Mayweather's departure from competitive (Mayweather/McGregor was not) boxing, and with Manny Pacquaio's career on the decline, the welterweight division was there for the taking. For too long the men of the 147-pound division chased 'TBE' in search of a career-high payday, neglecting the other names in the division in pursuit of a rather large cheque.

So who was to be the next welterweight king? Well, at one point it certainly seemed as though Keith 'One Time' Thurman was the man to take that mantra. He certainly has the best resume of any active welterweight (Manny Pacquaio aside). Danny Garcia, Shawn Porter, Luis Collazo and Robert Guerrero have all fallen victim to Thurman's pugilistic powers. With the Clearwater native picking up the WBC & WBA titles on the way. 

But things haven't all gone his way, with fans across the world quipping that 'One Time' has become 'Some Time'.

An elbow injury following his victory over Garcia and a hand injury suffered in sparring has kept him out of the ring for well over a year. 

IntuBoxing has learned that 'One Time' is slated to return on August 4th at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn, NYC. There has been no mention of an opponent thus far. But IntuBoxing will keep you updated.

Thurman still holds the WBA title and will be the first in line for his old WBC belt, which is being contested by two men he has beaten previously in Porter and Garcia. Popular opinion now states that is is the Texan native and IBF welterweight champion, Errol Spence Jr that is now the #1 man in the division. So for Thurman, the long road back to the top starts here. 

IntuBoxing wishes him well.
