This week in boxing history, PBC celebrates our first fight card, honors the youngest world champion in history, looks back at a heavyweight legend’s debut, recalls an Upset of the Year and commemorates the “Fight of the Century.”
Through nine rounds of their 147-pound showdown in the main event of Premier Boxing Champions’ debut on March 7, Keith Thurman dominated Robert Guerrero. Defeat seemed all but inevitable for “The Ghost,” who bled from a cut above his left eye as a result of Thurman’s nonstop battering.
If you missed March 7's all-out brawl between Keith Thurman and Robert Guerrero on NBC, you missed out on a great one. It's a fight that Thurman controlled through eight rounds, but his knockdown of Guerrero at 0:50 of the ninth round became The Moment of the fight.
