Keith Thurman’s first ring appearance in 22 months was a mixed bag — flashes of brilliance blended with apparent ring rust that make us all wonder about his chances against the likes of Errol Spence and Terence Crawford.
Our expert analysts dissect Thurman’s majority-decision victory over hard-nosed Josesito Lopez, as well as Jaime Munguia’s rough war with valiant Takeshi Inoue, the under-the-radar potential of pudgy and pasty heavyweight Adam Kownacki, and speculation about a pair of intriguing potential match-ups: Anthony Joshua vs. “Big Baby” Miller, and Gary Russell Jr. vs. Leo Santa Cruz … plus much more.
Our British correspondent, Paul McLaughlin, catches us up on recent happenings on the United Kingdom boxing scene, and then we have an in-depth conversation with Colleen Aycock, author of “The Magnificent Max Baer: The Life of the Heavyweight Champion and Film Star,” an exquisite biography of one of the most-colorful fighters in history.
