CARSON, CA, April, 26, 2014 — Keith Thurman lived up to his nickname of “One Time” with a blistering 3 round performance that left Julio Diaz unable to continue due to a Rib injury after 3 rounds of rapid give and take boxing. The crowd at the Stubhub center in Carson California were disappointed in the brevity of the main event but there was solace in the fact that the co-main event was arguably the Fight of the year to date and will be difficult to top for the rest.

The first round begins with Keith Thurman (22 – 0, 20 Kos) coming out and initiating a glove touch with Julio Diaz (40 -9, 29 Kos) which seems slightly peculiar as Thurman had made bold comments about knocking Julio’s head off in the lead up to the fight.  Thurman jabs three times then misses with a hook off the jab throwing it just a little too wide. Julio Diaz misses a right hand lead and gets caught with a hard hook from Thurman that rocks him back against the ropes, another hook lands from Thurman making Diaz legs do a little dance uncontrollably coming off the floor.  Near rounds end Thurman feints Diaz out of position then backpedals with Diaz in pursuit landing a series of hooks to Diaz body in the process.
