Keith "One Time" Thurman shares with fans which KO's he thinks are his best and why.
With 21 knockouts in 24 fights, Keith Thurman has no shortage of highlight-reel stoppages.
While fans of the 26-year-old Florida native who goes by the nickname “One Time,” might have trouble picking their favorite KO, Thurman has narrowed his shortlist to his top three.
1. Diego Chaves (10th round KO, :28)
“This is probably my favorite knockout, because he was previously unbeaten and a proven puncher,” Thurman said. “I knew the knockout was coming before he did, because I read him like a book and delivered a perfect punch.”
2. Carlos Quintana (4th round TKO, 2:19)
“Outside of Paul Williams, nobody dismantled him like I did that night,” said Thurman, who claimed his first world title with the victory and retired Quintana from boxing on Nov. 24, 2012 at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, Calif.
3. Jesus Soto Karass (9th round TKO, 2:21)
“This is probably the KO that my fans like the most,” said Thurman. “Karass was a strong durable guy and not too many guys had stopped him. So too finish him the way I did, was exciting.”
