Keith Thurman

Interim WBA Champion

1.) What advice do you for someone who wants to become a boxer?

My advice is to look into your neighbourhood and look for a boxing gym. Find out the history about the gym. Get with the best gym you can get with. World class trainers are one of the reasons why we have world class fighters. It's about passion that the fighter holds. Also, understand boxing is a journey and you have to take it slow, it took me close to 18 years to be in the position I'm in today. 


2.) What has been the highlight of your career?

I don't know about a highlight, but I would say boxing on the big networks. Fighting on HBO last year, and this year fighting on Showtime.


3.) What are your goals for the rest of 2013?

To get a World Title shot. I'm looking to get a top four welterweight.  


4.) What does a typical training day look like?

Wake up, make sure I eat breakfast early, go to the gym around noon, put in my rope, bag, little bit of strength work. I like to mix it up on curtain days, but I'll throw in the P90X program. After all of this, I'll decide if I need a second workout at my local YMCA where I'll do all my running, cardio, and swimming.


5.) What do you like to do in your free time?

Spend time with friends, family, enjoy the weather that we always have in Florida, go down to the beach, sit outside, I like to play board games from time to time, like chess, I enjoy guitar, and I like to read. I'm trying to get better at my blues. I like doing anything that can keep my mind occupied. 


6.) Who were your heroes growing up?

My heroes growing up were Michael Jordan, Usher, and Mike Tyson.


7.) Who has been the toughest fighter you've faced?

Nobody in my professional thus far.
